Shelly-Ann Fraser of Jamaica won the Olympic Gold in the Women’s 100 meters with a time of 10.78 seconds.
What is unusual is they gave a TIE for second place. Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart both tied for second place in 10.98. Even at the nearest thousandth (0.001) of a second, they still could not separate second from third.
Anyone remember the 1982 Commonwealth Games 200m Sprinting Tie for first place?
Many predicted a Jamaica sweep, and analysts (or armchair commentators) were correct.
I think it is fair to say Jamaica is favored to the Women’s 4x100m relay?
The video of her 10.78 Gold medal performance will appear shortly on YouTube below.
