The Prefontaine Classic will offer an outstanding women’s 100m field. Leading the entrants is triple world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica, who won here in 2013, the last time the event was held here. On that occasion her nearest challenger was Blessing Okagbare, and the Nigerian will also return to put pressure on the Jamaican star again. Another big contender is world leader Elaine Thompson of Jamaica. With a PB of 12.64, Carmelita Jeter is the fastest in the field. The two fastest athletes in the world last year, Tori Bowie of the USA and Michelle Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago will also be sure to be in the mix. Tianna Bartoletta of the USA; and Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast complete the world class field.
