INDIANAPOLIS - Americans dominated the sprints and picked up wins in the women’s 800m and men’s shot put at the IAAF World Challenge series held in Zagreb, Croatia, on Tuesday.

The U.S. swept all five sprint events held in Zagreb. On the women’s side, Olympic silver medalist Carmelita Jeter (Gardena, Calif.) won the women’s 100m in 11.07, Ginnie Crawford (Culver City, Calif.)  took first in the women’s 100m hurdles in 12.68 and three-time 2012 Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix (Santa Clarita, Calif.) set a meet record in the 200m in a time of 22.35. The men featured Olympic silver medalist Jason Richardson (Los Angeles, Calif.) winning the men’s 110m hurdles in 13.07 and Ryan Bailey (Salem, Ore.) winning the 100m in 10.02.

The U.S. women had an outstanding day in the 800m as Maggie Vessey (Seacliff, Calif.) and Brenda Martinez (Big Bear, Calif.) had a 1-2 finish. Both women were under the two-minute barrier, with Vessey first in 1:59.61 and Martinez second in a personal best of 1:59.63. This was the first time for Martinez to dip under the two-minute mark.

Reese Hoffa (Athens, Ga.) picked up his fifth consecutive win as he had the farthest mark of the day in the men's’ shot put in 21.80m/71-6.25. Most notably, Hoffa outdistanced reigning Olympic champion Tomasz Majewski of Poland who finished second in 20.70m/67-11.
