Elaine Thompson-Herah defended her title as the fastest woman in the world, taking first in the 100m at The Prefontaine Classic on Saturday.

Thompson finished with a time of 10.54 seconds, running the second-fastest women’s 100m in history. Fellow countrywomen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson came in second and third for a Jamaican podium sweep.

Saturday’s race was billed as Sha’Carri Richardson’s return to competition after being barred from the Olympics due to a positive marijuana test. Richardson finished ninth in the Prefontaine Classic with a time of 11.14 seconds.
