Elaine Thompson-Herah

10.61


 
There have been so many iconic Olympic moments over the years, and they have all been joined today by Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson-Herah after her stunning Gold Medal win in the women’s 100 meters as she realizes she has broken Florence Griffith Joyner’s 33 year old record by 0.01 seconds with a new Olympic record of 10.61.
 
With the silver and bronze medals won by her teammates Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Sherika Jackson this year’s new Olympic motto could not be more meaningful:
 

Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together.
