This incredible stadium will soon be in the spotlight for this yrs world championships as we witnessed Elaine Thompson and Travon Bromell dominated 100m at the Prefontaine classic 2022
After a fair start, it was Dina Asher smith of Great Britain who got a very impressive start, but over the closing 40 meters, it was all Thompson Herah who once again showcase unmatched top-end speed with a finishing time of 10.79 s Herah just ran the second-fastest time of this season so far, now only falling behind her compatriot and legend Shay Ann Fraser Pryce. Finishing in second, was none other than the sometimes embattled Use sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, who ran a very impressive time of 10.92s, just barely edging out Sharika Jackson of Jamaica, the Olympic bronze medalist who also finished in 10.92s. Now, this was Richardson first time breaking 11 seconds barrier since last yr use championships. And at 10.92 seconds she is now tied as the 6th fastest female athlete in the world for 2022. This was a huge moment of redemption for Richardson as she managed to take down last yrs bronze medalist Jamaica’s Sherika Jackson. With this kind of performance, we can see her making the United States team this season.
Finishing behind these top three was a very quick field with a total of five athletes dipping under the 11secs barrier, notable Dina Asher-Smith, and Terry Twanisha finished in 10.98secods, but faster than anyone on this day, was once again Jamaica double Olympic Champion Elaine Thompson Herah, who just knows how to shows up for the big meets.
At this point in her season, it would have seemed as if she is officially on a path to greatness. But when Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce and Elaine Thompson Herah do finally meet, what will the winning time be between these two legends, and which Jamaican athlete will ultimately come out on top?
Meanwhile in the men’s 100m United States sprinter Treyvon Bromell celebrated early as he went on to win in 9.93 seconds then was followed closely by USA’s silver medalist in the 100m Fred Kerley, in a time of 9.98 seconds and coming in third place was USA’s reigning World Champion Christian Coleman in 10.05 seconds.
