POWERING AWAY Despite winning the women’s 100m in a wind-aided 10.71 seconds at Saturday night’s 13th Jamaica International Invitational at the National Stadium, IAAF World Championship 200m silver medallist Elaine Thompson rued not executing a ‘complete race’. The time is not official because the wind reading was +2.4, above the allowable +2.0 mps limit. Thompson, whose 100m PB is 10.84 seconds, believes that with good race execution and ideal conditions, she could better the national 100m mark (10.70 seconds), which is held by her training partner, Olympic and World Champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. “Anything is possible, hopefully,” Thompson said of her chances of getting the national record in her post-race interview. Speaking about her race execution, Thompson said: “… Not the first part only, I am working on all of the 100m. My first 30 metres is not the best, so I am trying to work on that more.” Continuing, she said: “The comparison between last year and this year, I mean, last year, I was a collegiate athlete. I am not racing that much this year, but I’ll just keep on training and putting in the work and go out there and deliver.” The 23-year-old’s time was greeted by voracious cheers of approval from the National Stadium crowd. She ran from Lane Four, stamped her class over the final 20 metres and powered from the rest of a competitive field, which included American English Gardner (10.85), who finished second, and Trinidad & Tobago’s Michelle-Lee Ahye (10.98), who placed third. The meet record is 10.86, set by American Carmelita Jeter in 2011. Thompson reiterated that she has been “training really hard and happy to come out victorious”. “It’s a stepping stone for me to see where I’m at, so I have to go home and train harder and see the mistake that I made and see if I can correct it from there,” emphasised the MVP athlete. Meanwhile, Thompson is not sure what sprint event(s) she will do at trials for this summer’s Oympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but leaves the decision to veteran tactician Stephen Francis. “I am not sure. My coach will decide. My training has been going okay so far, so I’ll just continue doing my best out there at all times.”
QPR host promotion-chasing Middlesbrough on Friday night, having won four of their last five home matches. Here are five potential battles we think could be important at Loftus Road.Nedum Onouha v Stewart DowningFormer England winger Downing was benched for Middlesbrough’s win over Hull but is expected to return to the side, with Cristian Stuani likely to be rested after international duty with Uruguay. Onuoha will need to cut off the supply of crosses Downing supplies from the left, while James Perch deals with Albert Adomah on the other side.Gabriele Angella v Jordan RhodesRhodes was recruited from Blackburn in January to spearhead Boro’s promotion push but has scored just once in 10 appearances. Angella had an excellent game against Preston and will want a repeat performance to frustrate former Brentford loanee Rhodes.Sebastian Polter or Conor Washington v Daniel AyalaPolter has done well as a lone striker in recent matches but Washington reminded boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink of his talents with a goal for Northern Ireland. Ayala has been out for almost two months with an ankle injury, but came through a behind-closed-doors friendly with Sunderland and is being tipped to start at Loftus Road.Karl Henry v Gaston RamirezHenry’s physical presence stood out at Preston and he needs another good display to check the runs from deep of Ramirez. The on-loan Southampton midfielder has already scored three times in his first nine appearances since joining in January.Matt Phillips v George FriendPhillips missed the trip to Deepdale but could come back in, particularly if Junior Hoilett hasn’t recovered from a knock picked up on international duty with Canada. Friend has been one of the best left-backs in the Championship this season, contributing to the best defensive record in the division.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
