Britain's Tony Jarrett equalled the world's fourth fastest time this year to win the men's 110 metres hurdles at the World Games in Helsinki last night. Jarrett clocked 13.13sec to edge home ahead of America's Roger Kingdom, who recorded 13.19.

Kevin Cullen, of Britain, won the 3,000m steeplechase at the Alpenrose meeting in Innsbruck, Austria, last night in 8min 41.38sec - a record time for the event.

Leroy Burrell, the world 100m record-holder, will not compete again this season because of a swollen tendon in his left foot.
