Multiple Olympic champion, Elaine Thompson-Herah, will not defend her 200m title at this summer’s Games in Paris.

The 31-year-old has opted not to race over the distance at the upcoming Jamaica championship but has entered for the 100 metres.

Thompson-Herah appeared to sustain an injury during the 100 metres at the NYC Grand Prix earlier this month.

She is the second-fastest woman in history over 100-metres and became the first woman to win back-to-back Olympic sprint doubles when she retained her 100 and 200 metres titles at Tokyo 2020.

In November, Thompson-Herah split with coach Shanikie Osbourne and appointed Reynaldo Walcott, who also coaches her Jamaica team-mate Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

The athletics events at the Paris Olympics take place from August 1-11.
