Elaine Thompson-Herah is the fastest woman in Jamaica, the fastest woman alive, and the double gold medal winner in both the 100 meters and the 200 meters.
She epically denied another great sprinter, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce from achieving a double gold in both events and making history. Certainly, this was a disappointing moment for Shelly-Ann, but the rise of a phoenix moment for Elaine.
The Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021 finally saw some pizzazz and excitement, as in the days when Usain Bolt competed. And we only have great hopes that she maintains her training and discipline to continue being the greatest female sprinters.
