Elaine Thompson-Herah secured a bounce-back victory over Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce at the Istvan Gyulai Memorial – a World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting – in Szekesfehervar on Tuesday (6). Video below and Full Results here

Thompson-Herah, who finished third at Jamaica’s Olympic Trials last month, was able to recapture the form that carried her to a sprint double in Rio five years ago. 

She pulled away from world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in the latter stages to stop the clock at 10.71 (0.6m/s) – just 0.01 shy of her PB and equalling the time she ran to win Olympic gold in 2016.

Fraser-Pryce was second in 10.82, finishing just ahead of Marie-Josee Ta Lou (10.86) and Blessing Okagbare (10.89).

Overall, Thompson-Herah was winning five of the seven meetings between the two Jamaican sprinters.
