Canada's Aaron Brown won the first men's 100 metre race of the Diamond League season with an underwhelming show in Birmingham on Saturday, after two false starts saw top contender Trayvon Bromell and local hope Zharnel Hughes disqualified. Brown clocked in at 10.13 seconds, a minor improvement from his 'B' race earlier when he managed 10.23 behind Jeremiah Azu, as the marquee event of the meet came to an anti-climactic finish when American Bromell and Hughes jumped the gun. Former world champion Yohan Blake of Jamaica finished second at 10.18 seconds while Canada's Jerome Blake took bronze with an effort of 10.20 seconds.
Ontario reported at least 809 people in hospital with COVID-19 on Sunday, down by more than 300 from Saturday and down by 215 from a week earlier.

Of those in hospital, 152 required intensive care — a decrease of eight from the previous day's total — and 72 patients needed the help of a ventilator to breathe. The province reported at least 1,05
They're back — and they're hoping locals and tourists alike will take in what they have to offer.

A chance discovery of nearly-forgotten, close to half-century-old kokanee salmon samples from Kluane National Park and Reserve are helping shape present-day conservation efforts.
