KINGSTON, Jamaica — Five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah clocked 10.94 seconds (-1.8 m/s) to win the women’s 100 meters at the JAAA/SDF Jubilee Series 2.1 at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica, on Saturday 21 May.

Meanwhile, in the men’s 100m, Oblique Seville promised to do something special a couple of weeks ago and he truly delivered when the 21-year-old became the sixth-fastest man on the Jamaican all-time list after smashing his personal best with an outstanding 9.86 seconds (0.2 m/s) clocking to secure the victory.

Flashback to the women’s race and Thompson-Herah, who pulled out of today’s Birmingham Diamond League meeting after feeling some discomfort midweek in training, seems to have recovered fully from those issues when he dominated the women’s 100m.

The two-time Olympic sprint double champion in Rio 2016 and in Tokyo last year, cruised to 11.35 secs to win her heat earlier in the day before returning to dominate the field in the final —posting her third sub-11 seconds clocking this season.

Remona Burchell finished a distant second place in 11.31 seconds with third going to Jodean Williams who ran 11.40.

Thompson-Herah returned to complete the double after cruising home to victory in the 200m in a time of 22.55 (-0.7 m/s).

In the meantime, following Oblique Seville home in the men’s race was Conroy Jones, who also clocked a personal best of 10.14 with Emanuel Archibald of Guyana taking third in 10.20.

Prior to today’s race, Seville’s PB was 10.00 seconds, set at the JAAA/SDF Jubilee Series #1 meeting on 7 May.
