100m showdown at WANDA Diamond League Saturday


No less that 47 medallists from Tokyo who won a combined 62 medals will be back in their first major competition since the Olympics, as the WANDA Diamond League kicks back into action at the pre-fontaine Classics in Eugene Oregon.

The Classics began with a special session followed by Saturday’s main course which features a number of mouth-watering contests.

Topping the bill will be the women’s 100m showdown which sees double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah facing up against World Champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Tokyo Bronze medal winner Sherika Jackson, Sprint relay gold medallist Brianna Williams and American Sha’carri Richardson.
