American dash star Fred Kerley cruised to victory in 9.91 seconds in his first 100-meter of the season on the Seiko Golden Grand Prix in Japan on Sunday.
The 28-year-old Texan, who will try to defend his 100-meter world title in Budapest in August, was by no means troubled as he completed forward of Australia’s Rohan Browning in second place.
Kerley clocked 9.88 in his warmth to interrupt the meet document in Yokohama.
He’ll face Olympic 100-meter champion Marcell Jacobs in Diamond League meets in Rabat on Could 28 and Florence on June 2.
Kerley completed second behind Italian Jacobs on the Tokyo Video games and the pair haven’t raced face to face since then.
Kerley has stated he’ll goal for a 100-200-meter double at this 12 months’s world championships.
He opened his Diamond League season with a 200-meter win in Doha earlier this month, clocking 19.92 seconds to complete forward of fellow American Kenneth Bednarek.
He’ll race in opposition to reigning 200-meter world champion Noah Lyles at that distance in subsequent month’s New York Grand Prix.
