the three-time Olympic champion Thompson-Herah forfeits the Birmingham meeting

Thompson-Herah, three-time medalist at the Tokyo Olympics will not be present in England.

Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson-Herah, triple Olympic champion (100, 200 and 4x100m) last summer in Tokyo, will ultimately not travel to Birmingham for the Diamond League meeting scheduled for Saturday, organizers announced Thursday.

«The decision not to go to Birmingham was taken as a precaution after she experienced some discomfort in training“, write the organizers.

The 29-year-old Jamaican, initially scheduled for the straight, competed in the 100m in Ponce (Puerto Rico) last week (10 secs 93) and hopes to “quickly resume her competition program”.
