Elaine Thompson-Herah 10.54 at Pre Classic
Elaine Thompson-Herah is now the second woman ever to break sub-10.6, which moves her closer to the 10.49 world record of the late American Florence Griffith-Joyner, set back in 1988.

Two-time Olympic 100m champion Elaine Thompson-Herah ran a stupendous Jamaican and Diamond League record of 10.54 at the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Eugene, Oregon, on Saturday (21) to defeat a field including the two compatriots who joined her on the Tokyo podium.

Thompson-Herah, whose previous best was the 10.61 she set in retaining her 100m title in Tokyo, overhauled the fast-starting Olympic silver medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce to bolster the position she already held as the second-fastest ever behind the 1988 10.49 world record belonging to the late Florence Griffith-Joyner of the United States.
