Jamaica’s five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah continues to race herself back into shape by winning the women’s 100m in a season’s best of 10.92 at the Gala dei Castelli in Bellinzona, Switzerland, a World Athletics Continental Tour Silver meeting, on Monday.

Imani Lansiquot from Great Britain dipped under 11 seconds for the first time in her career with 10.99. Gina Bass finished third in 11.12, while Zaynab Dosso missed her Italian record by 0.01 with 11.15.

Thompson-Herah’s compatriot Shashalee Forbes could only manage sixth place in 11.20. Forbes returned to secure second place in the 200m in 22.74. USA’s Tamara Clark won in 22.64 and Italy’s Dalia Kaddari finished third in 22.86.

“I am happy with my win as I set my season’s best in Zurich last week and I improved it again,” said Thompson-Herah. “I want to continue this season and run more races.”

Two more Jamaican wins were achieved at the meet.

Oblique Seville stormed to victory in the men’s 100m in 10.01, edging Kenya’s Ferdinand Omanyala (10.04).
