THE AMERICAN Marc Crear ran a season's best 12.98sec in the 110 metres hurdles to beat the world record-holder, Colin Jackson, in last night's IAAF meeting in Zagreb.

Bruny Surin, of Canada, failed to finish under the 10sec mark in the 100m, but broke the meeting record with a time of 10.08. The British sprinter Jason Gardener followed in 10.10, and Dennis Mitchell, of the US, was third in 10.14.

Surin also took the 200, winning in a track record of 20.29. Tony McCall of the United States came second in 20.37, and Ukrainian Sergei Osovic was third in 20.48.
