Sprint Divas Elaine, Shelly Sparkle With Season’s Bests

Jamaican sprint divas Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce both produced season’s best performances to win the women’s 100m and 200m, respectively, at yesterday’s Prefontaine Classic Diamond League meet at Hayward Field, Eugene, Oregon.

Less than a month before what is expected to be two mouth-watering clashes at the Jamaican National Championships, the Jamaicans showed they were making steady progress for the World Championships that will be held on the same track.

Thompson-Herah ran 10.79 seconds (0.7m/s) to win the 100m coming from behind as Fraser-Pryce led all the way to win the 200m in 22.41 seconds (0.8m/s).
