Running from lane five behind Shawnti Jackson, the daughter of former American 400m hurdler Bershawn Jackson, Felix got off to a strong start to move past the teenager and then pulled away from Jasmine Camacho-Quinn to seal the win.

Felix’s time is the fourth fastest in the world this season.

“It’s good to be back competing and having some fun,” the American said. “It gave me a chance to get a break between training.”
