May 9 - Jamaican world champion Yohan Blake missed the fastest 100 metres of the year by the blink of an eye on Wednesday, his 9.84 seconds a mere 0.02 behind world record holder and training partner Usain Bolt's mark.

Countryman Michael Frater was a distant second in 10.05 while Trinidad and Tobago's Keston Bledman took third in 10.06 at the Cayman Invitational in George Town, Cayman Islands. Bolt set the year's fastest time at the weekend in Kingston.
