Earlier, Thompson-Herah on July 31, raced to victory in an Olympic record time of 10.61 seconds in women’s 100 m. At the same event, Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce took home the silver medal clocking 10.74 seconds, becoming the most decorated female 100 m athlete at the Olympic Games. Shericka Jackson of Jamaica finished third with 10.76 seconds.

In the 100 meters sprint, Thompson-Herah broke Florence Griffith Joyner’s 33-year-old Olympic record of 10.62 seconds that she set in Seoul 1988. The time also launched her into second place on the world all-time list behind Griffith Joyner.

"I didn't see the time, but the pointing was just, I knew I had won, so I don't know what it means other than to show I was clear (of the field)," Thompson-Herah said on July 31. "I could have gone faster if I wasn't pointing and celebrating early. But that shows there is more in store, so hopefully, one day, I can unleash that time. I believe in myself but I didn't expect to run this fast, even though I felt great during the rounds. There was a lot of nerves but I said to myself, 'you can do this, you've been here before, just execute it'."
