Elaine Thompson To Skip Diamond League 100m Final



Olympic Games sprint double champion Elaine Thompson will skip the IAAF Diamond League 100m.

Thompson qualified for both 200m and 100m finals, set for Zurich, Thursday, August 29 and Brussels (September 6).

The women’s 200m was run on Thursday afternoon with the Jamaican double Olympic champion placing third.

It will be her last race before the Doha 2019 World Championships – September 27 to October 6.

Thompson, who after winning the double at Jamaica Trials, was unsure if she will run both events in Doha, told journalists: “I’ll run the 100 and 200m at the World Championships in Doha.”
