ET might be born Jamaican, but she definitely does her day job like she’s from another planet. Phone Home!!

As if Elaine Thompson Herah didn’t destroy enough records in Tokyo, she did one better at the Prefontaine Classic in Oregon on Saturday. The five-time Olympic gold medallist clocked in the second-fastest women’s 100 m run ever, winning with a shocking time of 10.54 secs. Respect greatness!

And, just like in Tokyo, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (10.73 secs) and Shericka Jackson (10.76 secs) copped another clean sweep for Team Jamaica 🇯🇲.

Briana Williams 🇯🇲 (11.08 secs) finished 8th while highly-touted American 🇺🇸, Sha’Carri Richardson, finished last.

Here’s the race in its entirety!
