Miller-Uibo, who was well-placed off the curve, pulled away in the last 50 metres to take victory in 22.06s.

Schippers, who along with Jamaican Shericka Jackson, fought hard in the home straight, took the minor places in 22.34 and 22.36 respectively.


“It was good to get the win in a stacked field. I’m training for the 400m, but my focus this season is going to be the 200m. You are going to see me race a lot more 200s this year.”
