Thompson Elaine, Jamaican sprinter will be in the letzigrund stadium as the favourite for top honors, for the Zurich Diamond league 200 meters finals.
Marie-Josee Ta lou, Shaunae Miller-Uibo, Dafene schippers and Simone Facey are also qualifyers of the 200m Diamond finale league.
Elaine said in recent report…
“Some of the best athletes are performing here, and so it’s really good coming back here. I’m just going out there to have fun. There is no pressure on me,”
“I don’t have anything to prove to the world; I am just going out there to have fun. It’s my last 200m of the season, so nothing to prove. Yes, there is some disappointment, but still [it is about] having fun,”
“Honestly, there was no pressure. Track and field is like life, and life is like track and field. Sometimes you plan, but it doesn’t work out. I went into the championship and everything was smooth, but it didn’t happen how I planned it, so I just have to look forward to the rest of my career,”
“I myself don’t know what happened, but what happened at the World Championships already happened. I can’t dwell on that right now, I just have to move forward and focus on the rest of the season.”
Elaine Thompson will rival against others towards the $6.4 million prize money that the winner of the race will get alongside another Diamond Race Triumph.
