Double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah clocked 11.35 seconds to record the fastest time in the heat of the women’s 100 metres at the JAAA/SDF Jubilee Series at the National Stadium today.
Herah, who pulled out of the Birmingham Diamond League on Saturday, flew out of the blocks before shutting down 40-meters from the finish line.
Thompson-Herah is scheduled to contest the final of the event later this evening.
A release on Thursday from Andi Sports Managements, the athlete’s agent, said Thompson-Herah decided not to travel to Birmingham “out of an abundance of caution after she experienced some discomfort in training.”
