Elaine Thompson-Herah broke Florence Griffith Joyner’s 33-year-old Olympic record in the women’s 100 meter, crossing the line in 10.61 seconds Saturday to defend her title and lead a Jamaican sweep of the medals.

Griffith Joyner set the old record of 10.62 at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Thompson-Herah beat her top rival, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce deur .13 sekondes. Shericka Jackson, who moved to the shorter sprints for the Tokio Olimpiese Spele, won bronze.

This had been shaping up as a fast race for days, if not months. In Junie, Fraser-Pryce ran the fourth-fastest time in history at 10.63 sekondes.

And when the sprinters arrived in Japan they discovered a fast track at Olimpiese stadion

In the semifinals earlier, the Jamaicans all cracked 10.8 to get on the list of the 10 best times in Olympic history.
