In the women's 100m hurdles, 2001 World Outdoor champion Anjanette Kirkland posted the fifth-fastest time in the world this year with her winning time of 12.85 seconds.
Also at Modesto, Suzy Powell continued her winning ways this season in the women's discus. Powell won the competition Saturday with a best throw of 213 feet, 10 inches after setting the U.S. record in that event three weeks ago. Other field event winners included world and Olympic champion Dwight Phillips in the men's long jump (8.28 meters/27 feet 2 inches, wind-aided). During that competition, Phillips soared to a wind legal distance of 8.20 meters/26-11 inches, which is the third best performance in the world this outdoor season.
