Ryon Jones, Staff Reporter - DOHA:

Kaliese Spencer has blamed a lack of race sharpness for her third place finish in the women’s 400m hurdles at the IAAF Doha Diamond League meet.

The four-time Diamond League winner looked laboured, as she came home in a season best 55.02 seconds.

The event was won by Germany’s Eilidh Doyle in a world leading 54.53 with Bahrain’s Kemi Adekoya (54.87) second.
