Australia's fastest woman Torrie Lewis has made another stunning sprint breakthrough in the run-up to the Olympics by beating the world 100 metres champ and powering to a stunning 200m triumph at the season's opening Diamond League meeting in China.

On a night in Xiamen when Armand Duplantis was setting another world pole vault record of 6.24 metres, Australia's own soaring star led the undercard with her brilliant half-lap victory over two American stars.

After her brilliant home-based campaign, when she became the Australian 100m record holder with her 11.10sec run in Canberra in January, 19-year-old Lewis made it an individual Diamond League debut to remember on Saturday.

She clinched a wholly unexpected win from way out in lane nine, beating her idol, 100m world champion Sha'Carri Richardson, and Tamara Clark after a fine start.

'Not at all!' beamed the Newcastle youngster, when asked after the photo finish if she believed before the race that she could win.
