Asian Games: Femi Ogunode wins men`s 100m in Asian record 9.93sec


Nigeria-born Ogunode, who won the 200-400m double at the 2010 Asiad, beat China`s Su Bingtan, with Japan`s Kei Takase third.


Hopes for an Asia-born athlete finally breaking the 10-second barrier sank with Su crossing in 10.10 and his Chinese team-mate Zhang Peimeng timing 10.18 in fourth.


Ogunode`s win is Qatar`s second athletics gold of the tournament, pulling them level in their shootout with fellow wealthy Gulf state Bahrain.


His time bettered the 9.99 that team-mate Samuel Francis ran at the Asian Championships in 2007. Francis, visibly struggling with a leg injury, finished last.
