Christian Coleman outpaced countryman Justin Gatlin and Canadian Andre De Grasse to capture 100m gold at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar.

Coleman clocked a personal best 9.76, registering the sixth-fastest time in history and a world low for 2019.

Gatlin, 37, whose personal best of 9.74 was also recorded in Doha and is fifth-fastest ever, nabbed a ninth World Championships medal. Gatlin had previously won the 100m in 2005 and 2017.

De Grasse overcame two seasons blighted by hamstring concerns to earn a second World Championships bronze after finishing third behind Usain Bolt and Gatlin at the 2015 installment in Beijing, China. The Canadian started slow but closed late to overcome South Africa's Akani Simbine to finish with a personal-best time of 9.90.
