Athletics: Gatlin claims second 100m

US sprinter Justin Gatlin clocked 10.17s yesterday to win his second consecutive 100m final since coming back from a four-year doping ban in Tallinn, Estonia.

Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic 100m champion, was running at the Ergo World challenge meeting.

Before this month, he had not raced competitively since June 2006 after being banned because of a positive test for the male sex hormone testosterone and its precursors.
