USA’s Tori Bowies takes Slver, fellow Jamaican Fr-Pryce the Bronze.
Congratulations to Manchester, Jamaica sprinter Elaine Thompson taking Gold in the women’s 100 metres tonight in Rio. Ms.Thompson was a favorite contender on this page after her 10.70 secs for the Jamaica Olympics trials recently. Just today on TeamJamaica’s Instagram I expressed to the mainly Jamaican audience that with a 21.66 secs behind Dafne Schippers last year in the 200 metres, Elaine Thompson a strong double Gold medalist in 2016 Rio. The ever so competiitive Tori Bowie edged out former 100 metres Champion Fraser-Pryce for the Silver medal. Florence Griffith-Joyner’s records still stand.However, 2 Jamaicans from the same track club will be on the medals podium. Up next the Men’s 100 metres .Stay tuned.
