Berlin heroes Idowu and Dobriskey shine at home

TRIPLE-JUMP world champion Phillips Idowu made a triumphant return to home soil with victory at the British Grand Prix in Gateshead yesterday.<br /><br />Fellow Briton Lisa Dobriskey followed up her silver medal from Berlin by winning the 1500m, while Christine Ohuruogu returned to form by edging the 400m.<br /><br />American Tyson Gay overcame a groin injury to win the men&rsquo;s 100m, in the absence of world and Olympic sprint king Usain Bolt.<br /><br />Idowu started slowly but the Londoner eventually summoned a leap of 17.32m to beat the Bulgarian Momchil Karailiev into second place in wet and windy conditions.<br /><br />Dobriskey too left it late, passing American Erin Donohue on the last bend to claim victory, with another Briton, Hannah England, finishing third. Ohuruogu, who came home a disappointing fifth at last month&rsquo;s world championships, pipped world relay gold medallist Debbie Dunn to win her event.<br /><br />Gay, who ran the third fastest time ever in Berlin but was still left trailing by Bolt, beat Kim Collins in a time of 10.15 seconds. Britain&rsquo;s Jemma Simpson came third in the women&rsquo;s 800m, ahead of world bronze medallist Jenny Meadows.
