World silver medallist Justin Gatlin of the United States was out-trumped by compatriot Mike Rodgers in the 100m at the World Challenge meet in Croatia on Tuesday.
Rodgers, who won silver in last month's world championships alongside Gatlin in the 4x100m relay, clocked 9.97sec.
Jamaican Kemar Bailey-Cole, a training partner of Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake, came in second in 9.99sec, with Gatlin in third (10.01).
The American now faces a run-out against Bolt, who won treble gold in Moscow, at the Brussels meet of the Diamond League on Friday.
