The Namibian came in ahead of a line-up including American Sha’Carri Richardson and Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith.

Asher-Smith, who picked up a bronze in the women’s 4x100m at the Tokyo Olympics this summer, recorded a season’s best time of 22.04s, which was enough to earn her third place.

Second went to Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson, who split the difference between first and third with a time of 21.95s.

Keely Hodgkinson lost out to Jamaica’s Natoya Goule in the 800m at the Brussels Diamond League event.

Goule won with a time of 1:58.09, with Hodgkinson just behind with 1:58.16.
