Thompson-Herah withdraws from Birmingham Diamond League
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.
