Former Olympic champion Justin Gatlin cruised to the finish line with a winning time of 10.02 seconds, while Japanese teenage phenom Yoshihide Kiryu sank to fifth place in the men’s 100-meter dash race in the Golden Grand Prix Tokyo meet at National Stadium on Sunday.

The race was clearly the track and field meet’s main event as it featured international powerhouses like Gatlin, Mike Rodgers and Christophe Lemaitre, and Kiryu was expected to notch a sub-10 second mark. But unfortunately, they had to settle for lukewarm times, dealing with the strong wind (gusts of 3.5 meters per second).
