In her post-race comments at 15th IAAF World Championship, the 200m silver medalist Elaine Thompson mentioned the word “scared”.

“The first time in the 200m, I was scared when my coach told me that I was going to run it at the trials. I was like wow, no 100m for me, but I just worked with him; he is a good coach and anything he has in store for me, I just work with him," said Thompson.
