Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands: World 100-meter champion Yohan Blake ran the year's second-fastest time on Wednesday, winning the Cayman Invitational in 9.84 seconds.
Only Usain Bolt, Blake's training partner in their home country of Jamaica, has run faster this year. Bolt won a meet in Kingston in 9.82 on Saturday.
Blake won last year's 100 at world championships after Bolt was disqualified for a false start. The two aren't expected to square off in the 100 until Jamaica's Olympic trials at the end of June.
