Commonwealth Games 2022 Women's 100m Final Results: Thompson-Herah clocks 10.95 to win gold

Posted by: Watch Athletics

The four-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah won the women's 100m gold at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on Wednesday. The 30-year-old Jamaican comfortably clocked 10.95 seconds (wind +1.4) defeating Julien Alfred (11.01s) from St. Lucia and England's Daryll Neita (11.07s).

Elaine Thompson-Herah has been nursing injuries this year and was originally only named as an alternate for the 100m in Birmingham but was promoted following the withdrawal of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

"Feeling good, I didn't have the best execution but nevertheless I had to dig for that one but I am still grateful to win my first Commonwealth Games.

"I started in 2014 in the 4x100m. Then in 2018 in the 200m I came fourth and now I upgraded to a gold." Thompson-Herah told BBC sports.
