Elaine Thompson-Herah broke Florence Griffith Joyner’s 33-year-old Olympic record in the women’s 100 meters, 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 在 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Thompson-Herah beat her top rival, 雪莉-安-弗雷泽-普赖斯 经过 .13 秒. Shericka Jackson, who moved to the shorter sprints for the 东京 奥运会, won bronze.

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

And when the sprinters arrived in 日本 they discovered a fast track at 奥林匹克体育场

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