Jamaican sprinter Lerone Clarke ran a national record to win the men’s 60 metres at the Aviva Grand Prix in Birmingham today.

Nesta Carter was second in a personal-best 6.49, while Asafa Powell finished a disappointing third in 6.50, also a personal-best.

American Trell Kimmons was fourth in a season-best 6.56.
