    A new “fastest woman alive” has been crowned at the Tokyo Olympics. Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson-Herah just beat the record previously held by Florence Griffith Joyner by a one-hundredth of a second.
    Thompson-Herah took home the gold in Tokyo on Saturday, completing the women's 100 meter race in just 10.61 seconds and narrowly beating out Flo-Jo's record of 10.62 set during the 1988 Seoul Games.
    This is the sprinter's second gold medal. She also won the top-prize in the same event at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.
