LONDON, England:
Double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson knows she has some work to do on her start, but was a satisfied woman after securing a solid win in the 100m at the Muller Anniversary Games in London on Sunday. 

Like she did in the heat a couple hours earlier, Thompson had to work her way back after a sluggish start, but she again showed her power and class in the event, winning in 10.94 seconds ahead of Dafne Schippers, 10.97 and Blessing Okagbare, 10.99. 

Thompson also booked her spot in the 100m Diamond Race finale with two races to spare, remaining in contention to defend her title won last year. 

"I still have some work to do on my start but by World Champs I will definitely work on that and get it right. I am working on my transition and focusing on myself going into the World Championships," said Thompson after her win.
