On Saturday, the 25-year-old timed 11.26s (-1.6m/s) to win her heat before lowering her national record with the ninth-fastest time in the world this year. It was the third time Del Ponte was breaking 11-seconds this season.

Lorène Dorcas Bazolo of Portugal also established a national record with 11.10s when placing second on Saturday, improving her own previous Portuguese mark of 11.15s. Orlann Ombissa-Dzangue of France also ran 11.17s for fourth.

Meanwhile, Del Ponte completed the sprint double as she posted another career best of 22.38s to claim the 200m.

The European Indoor 60m champion went into the race having never broken 23-seconds with her best being 23.02s.

However, sub-23 seconds run in La Chaux-de-Fonds this weekend wasn’t a shocker to many, given that she’s been in red-hot form in the 100m.

Portuguese sprinter Bazolo followed Del Ponte home again in second place with another national record of 22.64s, while the podium seats were completed by Anna Kiełbasińska of Poland with a 22.76s third-place finish.

Dutch sprinter Marije van Hunenstijn also got below 23 seconds when winning the B race in 22.89.

Poland’s Anna Kiełbasińska produced a PB of 50.38 for first place in the 400m, with Swiss sprinter Léa Sprunger (50.70 SB) and Spain’s Aauri Lorena Bokesa (51.48 PB) following her home.
