Elaine Thompson-Herah Talks About Her Season Opener and World Title Dreams – See Video

The fastest woman alive over the 100m, Elaine Thompson-Herah, kicked started her 2023 season with a stellar 7.15s win over 60m at the Queen’s/Grace Jackson Invitational Meet at the National Stadium in Kingston on Saturday night. The Olympic champion said in an interview after the race that she was a little disappointed with the line-up and the time slot but was happy she got across the line healthy in the end.

Even though she has dominated the last two Olympic Games, the sprinter never has been able to come away with a world championship title in her favourite events, the 100m and the 200m.

As for her future plans, the Manchester native said she is taking it day by day, month by month. The athlete told the reporter that she was well aware that last year was not a good season, which is why she will not be dwelling on what is already behind her.

Additionally, Elaine hinted that she can perform at her best once she stays healthy. The fastest times that Elaine Thompson has ever run in the 100m and 200m are 10.54 seconds and 21.53 seconds, respectively.

The sprint star seemed determined to make a mend for last campaign below par performance when she told the reporter confidently, “I don’t think about what happened last year.” “I can’t dwell on that, I just move forward and look forward to this new season,” Elaine declared.

In Hungary Budapest this summer, Thompson-Herah will look to secure the first gold medal of her life at the World Championships.
