Bahamian track and field queen Shaunae Miller-Uibo pulled out of Monday’s 100m final at the Star Athletics Sprint Showcase in Florida.
Miller-Uibo ran 13.56 seconds in the first round of the event, which proved she was far from her best.
Claude Bryan, Miller-Uibo’s manager, gave the reason for his star athlete withdrawal.
“Just a mild discomfort so she opted for caution,” Bryan told Trackalerts.com.
Sha’Carri Richardson won the final in 10.83 (2.1m/s wind).
Earlier, Richardson recorded the fastest time in the first round of 10.95 ahead of Kourtney Johnson, 11.25 and Kimberly Williams, 12.11.
Miller-Uibo was the world leader up to August 9 with 10.98. Jamaicans Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce 10.87 and Elaine Thompson-Herah, 10.88 are the only two sprinters to break 10.9 this season.
Miller-Uibo, however, remains the world leader in the 200m at 21.98 and 400m with 50.52.

She didn’t run 13,56, she walks faster than that. She felt a bit of discomfort and decided not to ru. If she actually runs, it means a time around 10.9…
take time beautiful
Just run 200 & 400 your best races. Just after the firsr 100 m in 200 m race, you turn up the Shaunae engine. lol
Time to take it easy.
13.56! That’s far apart
Nothing to prove now. Just keeping the competitive juices flowing. Time to shut it down and prepare for next season 🇧🇸🇧🇸🇧🇸🇧🇸
