60m PB for Thompson
Double Olympic sprint champion, Elaine Thompson, made a smashing start to her 2017 campaign after running a personal best (PB) 7.02 seconds to win the women's 60 metres at the Queen's Grace Jackson meet inside the National Stadium this evening.
Thompson held off teammate and Olympian Christania Williams who finished a close second in 7.05. Audra Segree took third in 7.27.
"I didn't know that I ran that fast and I am extremely pleased. I can't wait for the Birmingham Indoor meet next month," Thompson said.
Julian Forte topped the men's event in 6.55 ahead of Kevean Smith (6.60) Michael Campbell, third in 6.63.
