The world record holder in the event faded a bit in the closing meters, but held a big enough cushion to fend off his countrymen who closed strongly.

Coleman’s winning time is the third-fastest in the world this season behind the 6.45 secs world-leading time by Bahamian and Texas Tech’s Terrence Jones and Oregon’s Micah Williams’ 6.48 secs.

Looking ahead to the season, the 25-year-old who will defend his world 100m title later this summer told NBC during his post interview that the season will take care of itself.

“[I am] just taking it one race at a time. [Go] into each race with the same mentality and focus. Try to win and I think it (the season) will take care of itself.”

Bromell finished second to Coleman with 6.50 with American teammate and fellow Tokyo Olympian Ronnie Baker getting third with 6.54.

Coleman had opened his season with a 33.20 secs second place finish in a 300m race at the Jim Green Invitational in Kentucky, on January 14.
