Thompson-Herah happy to return to the track after COVID lockdown

Double Olympic sprint champion Elaine Thompson-Herah says she's feeling confident following her wind-aided 10.73 seconds over the 100 metres at the third staging of the Velocity Fest track meet at Jamaica College last weekend.

In just her third race of the year, the 28 year old almost had a world-leading 10.73 seconds in the women's 100 metres, but a positive 3 metre per second wind meant the time was not legal.

But in a statement to Radio Jamaica Sports, Thompson-Herah says she's happy to return to the track and re-developing her hunger for the sport after the long break.

She also says she has had to adjust her mindset with no fans present due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Thompson-Herah who finished fourth at last year's World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar, clocked 22.98 seconds in the 200 metres on July 11 at the first Velocity Fest event and registered 11.19 seconds in the 100 metres the following week.
