The Jamaican, who holds a personal indoor best of 7.04secs in the event, set in Stockholm, last February, wanted to see how well her training was going in preparation for the Worlds, which will be held in Sopot Poland, from March 7-9.

She said prior to running on Saturday: “I am looking forward to (running the 60m) because I want to know where I am in terms of training and how training has been going.

“I will be going away to compete in some 60 metres, which I know will provide huge competition and I will get to see where exactly I am. The plan is to do the World Indoor Championships, so I will just be working towards that.”
