Five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah is out of Saturday's Diamond League meet in Birmingham, England.

A release today from Andi Sports Managements, the athlete's agent, said Thompson-Herah decided not to travel to Birmingham 'out of an abundance of

caution after she experienced some discomfort in training.'

The release added that Thompson-Herah is looking forward to resuming her 2022 competition schedule

in short order.

Thompson-Herah was down to face Britain's Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita, Ajla Del Ponte of Switzerland, compatriot Shericka Jackson and Americans Destiny Smith-Barnett, Gabrielle Thomas and Cambrea Sturgis in the women's 100 metres at the meet.
