KYLE GREAUX finished fourth in the men’s 200 metres event at the Shanghai Diamond League meet, in China, yesterday. Running in still conditions, the Trinidad and Tobago sprinter got to the line in 20.40 seconds.
Aaron Brown was the class of the field, clocking 20.07 to finish well ahead of fellow Canadian Andre De Grasse, the runner-up in 20.21. South African Clarence Munyai, way out in lane nine, sneaked in for third, leaning to the line for a 20.37 clocking.
Brown took charge of the race on the bend. By the time he transitioned into the straight, Greaux and company were forced into catch-up mode. De Grasse battled hard but could not close the gap on his compatriot. Greaux looked well positioned to secure third spot, but seemed unaware of Munyai’s challenge in lane nine, and had to settle for fourth.
