OLYMPIC STADIUM, London -- Americas Kendra Harrison set a new world record in the 100 metre hurdles and Usain Bolt cruised to victory in the mens 200m on the opening night of Londons Anniversary Games.Great Britains women smashed their national mark in the 4x100 metres as records tumbled on the freshly-laid Olympic track, with Harrison shaving 100th of a second off the worlds best time.Her 12.20 seconds bettered the mark of 12.21, set by Yordanka Donkova in 1988. Harrison was overcome with emotion as confirmation of her time came through, but she wont be at the Rio Olympics after missing out in the trials.Reigning Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill finished eighth in the same event, clocking a seasons best 12.76 in the heats.I smashed the hurdle and that threw my race, Ennis-Hill said. We are only a few weeks away now Rio now so I am excited about competing there.Bolt ran?19.89 in the 200m on his comeback from a hamstring injury that ruled him out of Jamaicas national trials. Panamas Alonso Edward in second and a seasons best saw Britains Adam Gemili finish in third.However, Britains two main track triumphs were the performances of their 4x100m womens quartet and Laura Muir in the 1500m -- both set new British records.The 4x100m teams time of 41.81 seconds was the fastest in the world this year. It bettered the British mark of 42.10 set in Beijing at the 2015 World Championships, with Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita storming to victory in London.I was watching Daryll down the last 100m, said Britains third-leg runner Asher-Smith. I could see the time counting down and just thought, oh my god, we are going to do it. To run the British record is sensational.And on a night when records tumbled, Muir broke Kelly Holmes record with a time of 3:57.49 in the 1500m. It was hard to do but Im over the moon, Muir said.Frances Jimmy Vicaut won the 100m in a time of 10.02, with Britains CJ Ujah and Richard Kilty placing sixth and seventh.Katarina Johnson-Thompson, who will compete in the heptathlon at Rio, got a welcome confidence boost in the high jump as she registered a personal best of 1.95m, beating her previous record of 1.92m. Spains Ruth Beitia took victory with a jump of 1.98m.?Christine Ohuruogu ran the fastest time by a British athlete this year in the 400m but finished fifth behind the Bahamas Shaunae Miller who set a world-leading time in 2016 with a personal best of 49.55 seconds. Jamaicas Stephenie Ann McPherson finished second with 50.40 and Americas Natasha Hastings registered a 50.49 to finish in third.Ohuruogus performance left the watching four-time Olympic champion Michael Johnson unimpressed. He said on the BBC: She [Ohuruogu] has got a lot of work to do between now and Rio. She had no great lift at the end.Britains Eilidh Doyle placed fourth in the womens 400m hurdles with a time of 53.90. The 29-year-old clashed arms at the final obstacle as Americas Dalilah Muhammad claimed victory with a time of 53.90.Frances Renaud Lavillenie took the mens pole vault with 5.80m while his fellow countryman Pierre-Ambroise Bosse took the 800m with a time of 1:43.88.

Ben Gedeon Jersey. The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday.

Mark Sutton talks ESPN through his favourite shots from the dramatic Brazilian Grand Prix.Collision courseCamera - Nikon D5 body | Lens - Nikkor 200-400mm F4 ?| Shutter speed - 1/1000th of a second | Aperture - F5.6 | ISO - 1600I was at Turn 10, the hairpin, but I kept seeing people crash and thought Im in the wrong place here. So I moved up the circuit and its honestly mindblowing how quick they are going in the rain, pulling out of the spray of other cars. I was just photographing the photographers standing trackside and then saw Massa have a moment at the top of the corner. He clipped the barrier and I just kept shooting -- I had the 400 on so it was a bit tight. When he hit the barrier it was more frontal, so it was a bit of the front wing came off. I didnt really see what happened after that -- I just knew I had to get the wide angle on for the next shots of him getting out of the car.Massas final farewellCamera - Nikon D5 body | Lens - 70-200mm F2.8 | Shutter speed - 1/500th of a second | Aperture - F5.6 | ISO - 1600This was a walk of emotion, coming out of the car and waving to the crowd over the barrier. Then one of the marshals gave him a flag and I thought well, thats the shot, as he walked away. I couldnt get any closer because that was the track, he actually shouldnt have been where he was but it created a great picture. I could see the flag was floating above his head so I was waiting for a shot of when I could see his face. When I first sent these back at the media centre I was in such a rush I dont think I sent the best shot from this sequence, I sent one where you cant see his face.I was changinng lenses in the rain and it was a rush, to be honest.dddddddddddd Youre waiting for those moments to happen and when they do you have a smile on your face in the background, you just go with it. There was still the rest of the race to finish so you have to focus on your job. nRain delayCamera - Nikon D5 body | Lens - Nikkor 70-200 F2.8 | Shutter speed - 1/320th of a second | Aperture - F11 | ISO - 1600The rain delay made for a chaotic afternoon. The race was on-again off-again several times and it made it chaotic. One good shot to come from it was the train of cars behind the safety car. Its not often you get this sort of shot in a race -- theres obviously the formation lap, but this had the added benefit of the spray, creating a good picture.Because of the chaos of the race I missed Marcus Ericssons crash as I had been positioned elsewhere on the circuit.20 down, one to goCamera - Nikon D5 body | Lens - Nikkor 200-400mm F4 | Shutter Speed - 1/640th of a second | Aperture - F6.3 | ISO - 1000This was a good shot between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg on the podium. Often in these last few years we havent seen much between them in the last few seasons when theyve been up there, its often tense and they sometimes act like the other one isnt there. This has been the story of the season, theyve been fighting all year. I think whoever wins they will hug each other and shake hands and say the best man one. I think theres more respect evident between them this year than in previous years.
