Elaine Thompson-Herah hit top form at Saturday’s (25 July) Velocity Fest Meet 3 at Jamaica College (JC) in Kingston.

Thompson, running only her third race in nine months, stopped the clock in 10.73 seconds to take the women’s 100m. It’s the fastest time in the world this year. The wind reading, however, was 3.0m/s, which is above the allowable limit of 2.0m/s.

The Rio 2016 Olympic Games sprint double champion was unmatched from start to finish, winning by close to eight metres.

Shashalee Forbes was a distant second in 11.05 while Indian Srabani Nanda, who trains at MVP, finished third in 11.51.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo, on Friday night, ran 10.98 to beat the previous world lead of 11secs flat held by Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

MVP’s president Bruce James organizes the Velocity Fest track and field series.
