DAEGU, South Korea -- American sprinter Carmelita Jeter breezed to victory in the women's 100 meters at the Colorful Daegu meet Thursday.

Jeter covered the distance in 11.09 seconds to beat countrywoman Lashaunte Moore, who finished in 11.27.

Jeter couldn't match the world-leading 10.86 she ran in Jamaica last week but was still dominant in the latest meet of the IAAF World Challenge series.

Americans dominated the sprint races, with Walter Dix taking the men's 100 in 10.00, edging countryman Mike Rodgers who was second in 10.03.

Three-time world champion Allyson Felix of the U.S. won the women's 200 in 22.37, David Oliver clocked 13.14 to win the men's 110 hurdles, and Olympic champion Dawn Harper took the women's 100 meter hurdles in 12.73.

Yuzo Kanemaru of Japan had a season's-best 45.23 to win the men's 400, beating David Neville of the U.S. by 0.01 seconds.

Kenya's Boaz Lalang won the men's 800 in 1:45.90. Duane Solomon of the U.S. was second.

Daegu will host the world championships in August.
