Worlds champion Luvo Manyonga will lead a group of four South African athletes today as they take on some of the best in the world in their respective disciplines at the second of 14 legs in the IAAF Diamond League series in Shanghai, China.

"It is just a start, I hope I can be better and better in the future, I have told my coach that I wanted to showcase my best form in Eugene, even just a little progress", he added.

"When I saw the rain tonight I thought, 'Yes!" he said. Javelin victory was claimed by Lyu Huihui after her third round meeting record throw of 66.85m.

It was Prescod's first Diamond League triumph and the Briton said that while others toiled in the wet, he relished it.

De Grasse, from Markham, Ont., finished eighth in a time of 10.25, while defending world champion Justin Gatlin of the USA finished seventh, in 10.20.

"It was the first 200m of the season, which is always a tough one for me", said Schippers.

World silver medallist Steven Gardiner of Bahamas claimed another win as he broke the 400m meeting record with 43.99 ahead of Botswana's Isaac Makwala with 44.23, while USA's Olympic and world triple jump champion Christian Taylor was fifth in 45.24.

Shubenkov's compatriot Mariya Lasitskene, the double world women's high jump champion, maintained a winning run that goes back to July 2016 as she cleared 1.97m, the best so far this season.

China's 19-year-old Shi Yuhao had taken the lead with a PB of 8.43m in the second round, a mark which Manyonga had matched in the fourth round to sit ahead on countback.

It was a Kenyan 1-2 in the men's 800m, where Wyfliffe Kinyamal's meeting record of 1:43.91 was just enough to beat compatriot Jonathan Kitilit (1:43.95), with third placed Marcin Lewandowski (Poland) 1.46s behind the two pace-setters.

Olympic 400m hurdles champion Dalilah Muhammad of the United States won in a season's best of 53.77, with Janieve Russell of Jamaica clocking a personal best of 53.78 in second place.
