On July 16 and 17, 2022, the Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, United States hosted the women’s 100 metres at the 2022 World Athletics Championships.
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce got a head start, as she has for the majority of the past 13 years, and Marie-Josée Ta Lou did as well.
Only Shericka Jackson was within striking distance at the 30-meter mark, with Ta Lou having already faded to join the pack of Mujinga Kambundji.
Dina Asher-Smith, and two-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah that was stretching across the track.
Fraser-Pryce kept making room until there were only 20 metres to go, at which point Jackson made some progress in closing the gap, but it was too little, too late.
Thompson-Herah beat out Asher-Smith for third place by a narrow margin.
