Elaine Thompson-Herah just ran 10.54 in the 100m with a legal wins of +0.9m/s
Flo Jo's WR is widely dismissed as wind aided. Many do not believe the wind reading of 0.0. The main arguments are that it was windy that day and other heats run on the same day had high wind readings, so a time that fast from Flo Jo most have been wind aided. Thus theory has also been perpetuated by disbelief that such a time is even possible from a women.
33 years later and a women has now run within .10 of Flo Jo's WR, proving that such speed is possible from a women.
The evidence against Flo Jo's time is entirely anecdotal. She later ran 21.34 in the 200m which is a fair bit faster than Thompson-Herah's 21.53 PB. Is it that hard to believe that Flo Jo could also muster up a faster 100m than Elaine can?
