Athletics: Fredericks beats Boldon

Frankie Fredericks, second behind Donovan Bailey in the Olympic 100 metres and second behind Michael Johnson in the 200m, beat Trinidad's Ato Boldon in a 100m race in Saint Denis, Paris last night.

The 29-year-old Namibian won in 10.09sec, ahead of the American Brian Lewis and Nigeria's Davidson Ezinwa. Boldon, who clocked the sixth fastest time ever of 9.89 last month in California, was fourth ahead of Canada's Bruny Surin.

Asked what he thought of Sunday's million-dollar showdown in Toronto, Fredericks said: "May- be someday somebody will ask me to take part in that sort of thing but for the moment, I don't have the credentials."
