RABAT, Morocco:
World 200m silver medallist Elaine Thompson confirmed her class with a convincing win in the Diamond League 100m in Morocco today.

Much is expected of Thompson in the future and she was in imperious form at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium recording a meeting record time of 11.02 seconds.

Thompson’s experienced compatriot Kerron Stewart came home third (11.19). Separating the two Jamaicans was Nigerian Blessing Okagbare-Ighotegu (11.11).
