Jamaican Elaine Thompson-Herah was crowned Olympic champion in the 200m on Tuesday at the Tokyo Olympics, just after her victory in the 100m. 

Jamaican Elaine Thompson-Herah won the 200m at the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday, scoring the double three days after the 100m, as in Rio in 2016, with the second fastest time in history (21.53).

She edged out Namibian sensation Christine Mboma, 18, who has only been running the 200m for two months, being deprived of the 400m due to hyperandrogenism regulations. American Gabrielle Thomas took 3rd place.
