BERLIN, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Jamaica's Tyquendo Tracey snatched the men's 100m title in 10.05 seconds at the 77th edition of the International Stadium Festival (ISTAF) in Berlin's Olympic Stadium on Sunday.

The Jamaican ran out a narrow lead and was able to keep Panama's Alonso Edward, who finished in 10.08s, on the second place.

"I would love to come back every single year! The track is great and really fast. It reminds me of home. My time could have been better, but still the race was great and the atmosphere in the stadium was incredible," Tracey said after the race.

Isiah Young from the United States finished third in 10.15s.

The ISTAF in Berlin's Olympic Stadium is the biggest athletics meeting in the world and attracts annually 50.000 spectators as approximately 180 athletes from 40 countries and regions compete in 15 disciplines. Enditem
