Jamaican Olympian Elaine Thompson has won the 100m sprint in less than 11 seconds while wearing sneakers at the IAAF Diamond League.
The annual track and field competition, which occurs in a different city across the globe every week, is being held in London from July 9.
World class athletes are trying out the London Olympic facilities in their bid to win the Diamond League Trophy.
Two time Olympic gold winner Elaine Thompson won the Women's 100m in flats battling a headwind of 1.4 m/s.
Spikes are conventionally used to prevent sprinters from slipping on the track and to keep them light on their feet.
Thompson wore a less prominent version of spikes as the traditional form hurt her Achilles tendon.
She has previously won gold in the Rio Olympic Games for the 100m and 200m races, making her the first woman in 28 years to win both races in the one competition.
