World 200 metres silver medallist, Elaine Thompson, produced a world leading 11.07 seconds in the women’s 100 metres at the Senior Link Up track and field meet at Stadium East yesterday morning.

Thompson joined the United States Morolake Akinosun atop the world list after her win a week ago in Texas.

Thompson sprinted away from a competitive line up to post her impressive time as Anneisha McLaughlin Whilby was some way off in second spot in 11.41 seconds, with her training partner at Sprint Tech, Audra Segree, third in 11.45.
