Rodgers makes US team for worlds

YOUNG Mike Rodgers, who almost quit running two years ago, claimed the top prize in the men's 100 meters when he held on to win in a wind-assisted 9.91 seconds at the US world championships trials in Eugene, Oregon, on Friday.

Veteran Darvis Patton finished a close second with little-known Rae Edwards third to join defending world champion Tyson Gay on the American team for August's world championships in Berlin. Fast times also came in a wind-assisted women's final. Carmelita Jeter edged Olympian Muna Lee by one-hundredth of a second for the title, clocking 10.776 seconds to Lee's 10.777. Former world champion Lauryn Williams claimed third in 10.96 seconds.
