Sparkling in Tokyo, where she has gleaned no less than three Olympic titles (100m, 200m, 4x100m), Elaine Thompson-Herah still has legs at the end of the season.
Proof of this is the lightning stopwatch signed on Saturday evening as part of the Eugene meeting: 10 ″ 54 on the straight line, ie the second fastest time in history over the distance. Only five hundredths from the controversial world record of the American Florence Griffith-Joyner (10 ″ 49).
« I think the record is within my reach, because I ran in 10 ″ 50 (in training, editor’s note) and I still have a lot in my stomach », Says the 29-year-old Jamaican sprinter.
