Interested in track and field events? Of course, such sprinters as ELAINE THOMPSON, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce orTori Bowie can’t but involve you in the Olympics. New records and new winners will definitely make you enjoy the course of events.
Rio Olympics is the venue for the emergence of new achievements – Jamaican athlete Elaine Thompson has defeated all the rivals and managed to win the gold medal overcoming the 100 m race.
The second to finish was American sprinter Tori Bowie. The third champion was another representative of Jamaica, the owner of the gold at the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008 and London 2012, eight-time world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
Really amazing! Having overcome the distance with impressive result - for 10.71s (by the way, her personal record is 10.70), Elaine Thompson left behind Tori Bowie – with the result of10.83 seconds, and managed to outrun her colleague Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who got the bronze medal, finishing the distance with the result of 10.86 seconds.
This time, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce – also the representative of Jamaican team, managed to lose, not expecting her comrades to achieve such high results. She is rather disappointed as she occupied the leading position and held gold medals two years running before the Rio Olympics. 2016 world fastest woman Elaine Thompson deprived her rival a unique chance to become the first sportswoman who could win gold medals on the 100 m distance every year for the third consecutive time.
It may also be surprising, but the 200 m champion of the Beijing Olympics in 2015 – Dafne Schippers managed to complete the distance with final time – 10.90, occupying the 5th place. Michelle-Lee Ahye was the sixth sprinter, English Gardner had the seventh position and Christania Williams was the eighth to reach the final line.
Yet, the stadium cheered up the bronze winner Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce much less than the fastest runner of the race Elaine Thompson.
The competitive spirit is becoming more and more higher. Jamaica is waiting for the new winners and gold medals, as Sunday – is the time of the Usain Bolt debut in competing to become a winner on the 100 m race. Jamaica is waiting for the next prizes and leaders.
