Double sprint Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah won her first indoor event of the season in the women's 60m at the Karsten Warholm Invitational in Uldteinvik, Norway today.

Thompson-Herah clocked 7.30 seconds for victory ahead of Norway's Helene Ronnigen who clocked 7.40 for second, and Ukraine's Viktoriya Ratnikova who was third in 7.53.

Thompson-Herah's winning time was 0.15 slower than her 7.15 clocking to win the 60m at last Saturday's Queen’s/Grace Jackson Meet at the National Stadium, where she made her season debut.
