Elaine Thompson eager for good competition in 2019 season

By April 12, 2019

In the wake of being announced in the 100m line-up for the Muller Anniversary Games in London from July 20-21, 2016 double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson, said she is hoping to enjoy the  Diamond League season.

In London, Thompson will face the likes of Dafne Schippers and Marie–Josee Ta Lou as well as Dina Asher-Smith who had an incredible break out year in 2018 during which she became European champion.

Notwithstanding the challenge, however, Thompson is eager for some good, old-fashioned action.

“This upcoming Diamond League season, I'm looking forward to some good competition,” she told Sportsmax.TV.

“It's always a pleasure racing with these ladies especially when we are all healthy and at 100 per cent.

“We line up ready to put our talent on show for all Diamond League fans. I look forward to this season which is all about staying healthy, focused and I'm excited about competing hard each time around.”
