KALAMATA, Greece — Great Britain’s Dwain Chambers recorded a season’s best to win the 100-metres dash, as he sealed a sprint double at the low-key Papaflessia athletics meeting on Saturday.

Chambers, the European Indoor 60m champion and record holder clocked a European 2009 best of 10.06 seconds to win the race, as continues his preparation for the World Championships in Berlin later this year.

The 31-year-old also won the 200m in 20.58seconds.

"This is my first outdoor meet of the season. I want to participate in many meets with the target being Berlin, but before that the British trials in July," he said.

"The fact that I will not be participating in the Golden League of Berlin has disrupted my meet schedule, but I plan to participate in a meeting in France and everywhere else they invite me," Chambers said.

 In the field events, South African Godfrey Mokoena won the men’s Long Jump with a leap of 8.33m, while Russia’s Anna Pyatykh took the women’s Triple Jump with 14.37m
