Go Jamaica 🇯🇲👌💯
Can’t WAIT UNTIL THE Olympics #TeamUSA #TeamJamaica ….
Congratulations to Jamaica once again for making your small island leave such a big footprint on world stage. You make the Caribbean proud to have you. Forget the rest of the Caribbean when it comes to sports
Jamaica is the only Caribbean country making a name for themselves and by extension the entire Caribbean. Don’t look for Trinidad to do anything similar in d near future. Trinidad sports in a total mess which is a reflection of the mediocre mindset trinis have towards everything. From d leaders go right back, everyone settles for d basics
Blake will be back to punish others in track hahaha
Excellent performance ladies and gentlemen keep your eyes on the mountain there will be rewards
Love it 9.97
Finally Blake is sub 10 again… returning to his natural form 🤗

Congratulations to you Elaine Thompson Herah
Yes Blake, you getting somewhere now
Kurt Gambino let’s see the finals
With good wind conditions, times will be great. Wind speed were elevated though. Thompson jogged.
Sensenya Ben Nyah what was the reading?
Catelina Swiftie 10.92 (3.0 m/s) in her heats. Williams 10.93 (3.6 m/s) in hers
Catelina Swiftie Final
Elaine Thompson-Herah 10.87
Brianna Williams 10.93 3rd PB
Sensenya Ben Nyah, I don’t think went all out. She backed up for the 200m not long after. 🥰👏🏼🇯🇲
Sensenya Ben Nyah, the 10.93 is not a legal PB because of wind. Her time in the final (10.97) is.
Jenny Carruthers that was adjusted on another post.
Jenny Carruthers indeed! Her focus was to moderate herself for those three races in quick succession.
I hope for the wind to be within the allowable in the finals
Michael Shirley it wasn’t at least for Williams
