Kyron McMaster added the NACAC 400m hurdles title to his CAC and Commonwealth Games crowns this year on Sunday with a comfortable win in Toronto, Canada on Sunday.

The British Virgin Islands star clocked 48.18 seconds to take the title and leave Jamaica’s Annsert Whyte (48.91) with the silver medal.

The USA’s Khallifah Rosser (49.13) was third.

In the women’s event, Jamaica’s Janieve Russell lost another battle with the USA’s Shamier Little.

The two have had some close battles this season but this one really wasn’t.

The American took the NACAC title in a time of 53.32s ahead of Russell 53.81.

Little’s time was a new championship record, eclipsing the mark of 54.35 set by the USA’s Tiffany Williams in 2015.

The USA’s Georgeanne Moline took the bronze in 54.26s.

    Nasser Al-Khelaifi's lawyer has denied an allegation of corruption against his client relating to the hosting rights for the World Athletics Championships.

    According to reports in France, the Paris Saint-Germain president is accused of validating an illicit payment of €3.1million to help Doha's bid to stage the finals in 2017.

    However, his lawyer, Francis Szpiner, has described the allegations as "totally inaccurate".

    "Nasser Al-Khelaifi's name does not appear on any of the documents in the file," Szpiner told Le Parisien in reference to a case compiled by investigating judge Renaud Van Ruymbeke in Paris.

    "It should be noted that Nasser Al-Khelaifi's initial hearing was only the result of a regrettable confusion by the investigating magistrate," Szpiner added, with Al-Khelaifi having voluntarily appeared before a judicial inquiry investigating the case in March.

    "Nasser Al-Khelaifi has never been operationally involved in Doha's bid for the World Athletics Championships."

    Qatar was unsuccessful in bids for the 2017 event and the 2020 Olympics but won the right to host the 2019 World Athletics Championships, which are due to take place between September 28 and October 6.
