Novlene Williams-Mills was the only Jamaican winner at Thursday’s Stockholm Diamond League meeting in Sweden.

Williams-Mills, a breast cancer survivor, won the women’s 400m in 52.29 ahead of Great Briatin’s Anyika Onuora 52.46.

'Every time I go into a race I expect to win, today though, the most important thing was to walk away healthy,” she was quoted by The Gleaner saying.

“It’s cold and the warm up wasn’t great so I’m glad to have run a good race and walk away in one piece,” said Williams-Mills, who led Jamaica at the mile relay title at last year’s Beijing World Championships.

Jamaican Simone Facey finished second in the women’s 200m, her time 22.81, behind Dina Asher-Smith of Great Britain, 22.72

Kendra Harrison, the world 100m hurdles leader, topped that event in 12.66 ahead of fellow Americans Nia Ali, 12.85 and Queen Harrison, 12.87

Jamaican-born Jak Ali Harvey (formerly Jacques Harvey), now representing Turkey, won the men’s 100m in 10.18.

Javier Culson of Pureto Rico won the men’s 400m hurdles in 49.43.

American Christian Taylor, 17.59m, beat Troy Doris of Guyana, 16.70m, in the men’s triple jump.
