Two-time Jamaican 400m champion Javon Francis won the men's 200m at the USA Track and Field's Back To The Track Series II in Prairie View, Texas, on Thursday.

Francis, who since 2018 has been training in the USA, won section two in 20.66 (2.6m/s), just ahead of Elijah Hall of the USA, who finished second in 20.75, a time good enough to maintain his second place overall as there was no final for the event.

American Kahmari Montgomery, who won section one in 20.86, finished third overall.

It was the second victory for 25-year-old Francis in the series as he won the 300m in 32.98 just a week ago.
