Thompson-Herah Carried Off Track Following 100m At NYC Grand Prix

(JAMAICA OBSERVER) – Five-time Olympic gold medallist Elaine Thompson-Herah on Sunday had to be lifted off the track at the New York Grand Prix at Icahn Stadium in Manhattan.

It is reported that Thompson-Herah injured her Achilles while running the 100m track event.

The back-to-back Olympic Games sprint double champion finished last in 11.48 (-2.1), but immediately removed her shoe and was limping.

This was Thompson-Herah’s first outing since the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon, two weeks ago where she finished last in 11:30 seconds.
