Congrats to PUMA Athletes Lerone Clarke and Mark Lewis-Francis (MLF) who finished first and second in the Men's 100m Final at the Commonwealth Games (CWG) in Delhi, India.

Lerone Clark from Jamaica finished in 10.12 and MLF of England finished just 0.08 seconds behind him for second.  This was an impressive finish for MLF after his blocks slid backwards as he drove away from the start.  The whole race he was playing catch up to Clarke, who led the race from the start.

Despite the "disgusting" start, as MLF called it, he's thrilled with his second place finish.  “That was one of best races I’ve ever run - the second half of the race anyway. For me it's about confidence for next year and for the year after.”

The favorite of the CWG was PUMA Athlete and Jamaican champion Oshane Bailey, but he unfortunately injured himself in the semi-finals and could not participate in the final.
