Elaine Thompson-Herah confirmed her place in the pantheon of sprint greats and secured an unprecedented 100-200m double for women with a sensational victory over the longer distance in Tokyo.

The 29-year-old Jamaican stormed home in 21.53 seconds, just 0.19 seconds below Florence Griffith-Joyner’s long-standing world record, to underpin her individual gold medals from Rio 2016.

It’s the second fastest time in history.

Namibian teenager Christine Mboma, banned from her favorite 400m two weeks before the Games because of her naturally high testosterone levels, took silver in her low point in 21.81.

Gabrielle Thomas, the American champion, took bronze in 21.87.

Griffith-Joyner’s 21.34-second mark, which was set in the final of the 1988 Games in Seoul, seemed unassailable for a long time. But Thomas’ 21.61 run at the US tests in June and Thompson-Herah, who became the second fastest woman of all time over 100 m on Saturday, have it back in view with the help of a high-tech track and a carbon-reinforced track moved spikes.

However, it could still be Mboma who could finally claim the record. In May, only 18 years old, the Namibian had only run a 200m before this season, a pedestrian 25.05. But her incredible top speed swallowed the Jamaican great Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and a few others over the last 50 m.

Thompson-Herah, who has suffered from an Achilles tendon injury for several seasons, celebrates her gold medal in Rio
Working on your start and the new experience of running the curve could quickly cut your time.

Thompson-Herah, Fraser-Pryce and 100m bronze medalist Shericka Jackson will try to ensure that Jamaica is one better than their 4 x 100m silver from Rio in Friday’s season finals.

Before Thompson-Herah won, British teenager Keely Hodgkinson took silver in the 800m, breaking Kelly Holmes’ 26-year-old British record with a tactically flawless run of 1: 55.88.

The 19-year-old comrade-in-arms Athing Mu from the United States won gold, although Jemma Reekie was ousted for bronze by the quickly closing American Raevyn Rogers.

Armand Duplantis won the first of certainly a series of world titles when he left the field behind in the pole vault.

The 21-year-old Swede had to switch to the hunt for himself and history by the end of the competition. After being the only man to climb 6.02 meters, he raised the bar at 6.19 meters and narrowly failed in an attempt to improve the world record he set in Glasgow last year.

The Briton Harry Coppell was seventh with a best time of 5.80 m.

Pozzi and King get away with it while Lyles relies on others
In the early evening in Tokyo, the British Andrew Pozzi and David King reached the semi-finals over 110 meter hurdles in 13.50 and 13.55 seconds respectively. Jamaica’s defending champions Omar McLeod failed to make the Jamaica squad for Tokyo, and world champion Sergey Shubenkov and Rio silver medalist Orlando Ortega are also out of the running after retiring from the heats.

Andrew Butchart finished seventh in his 5,000m run, but advanced to the final on Friday with a time of 13: 31.23. Marc Scott finished fourth with two tenths of a second and an automatic place in the final, but was eliminated with his 13: 39.61, who did not reach the pace of the other heat.

Scott Lincoln missed the shot put final with a personal best of 20.42 meters and didn’t make it.

The 17-year-old American Erriyon Knighton, who broke the U18 world record of the Jamaican great Usain Bolt in June, showed an impressive performance in the first 200-meter semifinals with a sure 20.02-second victory.

World Champion Noah Lyles almost paid for his complacency as he had to rely on a fastest loser spot after 19.99 and third place as he slowed down in front of the line. The Canadian Andre de Grasse, who won bronze in the 100 m on Sunday, went into the final on Wednesday the fastest with a personal best of 19.73.

The British Adam Gemili and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake could not progress from the heats earlier in the day.
