Elaine Thompson won the 100m title at the 2019 Pan Am Games in Lima, Peru on Wednesday to secure Jamaica’s third gold medal at the championships.

Wednesday’s final of the Women’s 100m at the 2019 Pan American Championships in Lima, Peru will feature four Caribbean women after Elaine Thompson, Trinidad and Tobago’s Michelle Lee Ahye, Natasha Morrison and Kelly-Ann Baptiste all advanced from their respective semi-final heats on Tuesday.

Trinidad and Tobago sprinter Michelle Lee Ahye is claiming that she is “saddened” by the circumstances under which she and her wife Chelsea have parted ways but insists that she was not charged in relation to allegations that she abused the woman she married in May 2018.

Michelle-Lee Ahye, the 2018 Commonwealth Games 100m champion is facing domestic abuse charges in Texas, the Trinidad Guardian is reporting.

Trinidad and Tobago sprinter, Michelle Lee Ahye, clocked a season’s best in the women’s 60m to close her indoor season at the Millrose Games in New York on Saturday.

Ahye clocked 7.15, which was good enough for second place behind a resurgent English Gardner of the United States.  Gardner got off to a good start and powered to the line in 7.10, which was a new personal best and the second fastest time in the world this year.  The American is looking to get back to her best after two ACL surgeries.

For Ahye, the result beat her previous best time of 7.21 set at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix last month but obviously did not come with the gold medal the Trinidadian won on that occasion.

 On Saturday, Javianne Oliver, another American, was third behind Ahye with a time of 7.19.

Ahye, the 2018 Commonwealth Games champion, is the fastest Caribbean woman over the distance this year.  The next closest of Jamaica’s Remona Burchell who has a best of 7.23 set in Poland earlier this month.  The fastest time recorded over the distance this year was set by Poland’s Ewa Swoboda who recorded 7.08 in Karlsruhe Germany earlier this month

  

2018 Commonwealth Games women's 100m champion Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago won the 60m crown in 7.21s at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston on Saturday.

Jamaica’s Fedrick Dacres warmed up for this weekend’s IAAF Continental Cup with an impressive win in the IWC Zagreb World Challenge meeting in Croatia on Tuesday.

Jamaica’s Ronald Levy edged Frenchman Pascal Martinot-Lagarde in the 110m hurdles to be the only Caribbean winner at the Edo Benedetti Memorial in Rovereto, Germany on Thursday.
