Brussels Diamond League: At the Memorial Van Damme in Brussels, Jamaica's Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah showcased her incredible speed once again, clinching victory in the 100m with a new season's best time of 10.84 seconds. This electrifying performance in Brussels further solidifies Thompson-Herah's status as the top female sprinter in the world this year.
Jamaica's dominance in women's sprinting was on full display as Natasha Morrison, Thompson-Herah's compatriot, clinched the second spot with an equally impressive run. Morrison clocked a season's best time of 10.95 seconds, demonstrating the Caribbean island's depth of talent in the sprinting arena.
"It was a tough season, but I´m glad that I´m back in my sprinting form. A couple of nights ago I ran 10,92 in Bellizona and I´m happy to improve that result tonight.
I feel healthy and in tonight´s race I was able to keep swinging and punching untill the finish line. With the shape that I´m in I hope to get a good result next week as well." Thompson-Herah said.
Adding to the excitement of the event, Britain's Dina Asher-Smith, a former 200m champion, also showcased her prowess. Asher-Smith broke the 11-second barrier, finishing with a time of 10.97 seconds to secure the third spot on the podium.
