Thompson clocks fast 60m in Glasgow

first_imgJamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson clocked 7.14 seconds for third place in the women’s 60m heat at the Glasgow Indoors Grand Prix at the Emirates Arena a short while ago. Thompson, who finished second in the 200m at the World Championships in Beijing last August, crossed the line behind world 200m champion Dafne Schippers (Netherlands), who clocked 7.11 and Trinidadian Michelle – Lee Ahye (7.14). The result means that Thompson is now the fastest Jamaican over the distance so far this season. The final takes place at 9:32am Jamaica time.last_img
