Shaunae Miller-Uibo

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

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.

  1. 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…

  2. Nothing to prove now. Just keeping the competitive juices flowing. Time to shut it down and prepare for next season 🇧🇸🇧🇸🇧🇸🇧🇸
