Thompson Still Working on Perfecting her Race

Elaine Thompson says despite her good showing at the recent Birmingham Grand Prix, there’s still some work to be done on the first half of her race.

Thompson set a world leading 6.98 seconds to win the women’s 60-metres.

Jamaican sprint legend, Merlene Ottey holds the national record of 6.96 seconds, which she set in 1992. Thompson shares the joint second fastest time with compatriot, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
