Thompson-Herah rebounds in 100m at Paris Diamond League


(Jamaica Observer) PARIS, France — Olympic Games sprint double champion, Elaine Thompson-Herah rebounded from her loss in Lausanne on Thursday to win the women’s 100m at the Paris Diamond League meet at Charléty stadium Saturday morning, Jamaican time, setting a meet record 10.72 seconds (1.3m/s).

In the absence of her great rival and compatriot Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Thompson-Herah was not challenged as she streaked away from the field to win by a clear margin breaking the meet record 10.74 seconds set in 2015 by Fraser-Pryce.

Shericka Jackson, who was third in her last three meetings in the 100m against Thompson-Herah, was second in 10.97 seconds with Great Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith taking third in 11.06 seconds.
