Olympic Record 10.54w / Florence Griffith Joyner USA / 25 September 1988

The dominant women’s sprinter of the last few years had been Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who had won gold at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics and the 2009, 2013 and 2015 World Championships. Coming in to 2016 she was considered a heavy favorite, but injury problems early in the year made it unclear how well she could run at Rio. While she rehabbed, the top women sprinter early in the year was her teammate Elaine Thompson, runner-up to Fraser-Pryce at the 2015 Worlds. The top American was Tori Bowie, although English Gardner won the US Olympic Trials, while another challenger was Dutch heptathlete turned sprinter Dafne Schippers, the 2016 European Champion in the 100, although she was better at the 200.

Fraser-Pryce made it to Rio and made the finals, as did Thompson, Bowie, Gardner, and Schippers. Thompson, a fast starter, had the lead by 20 metres and increased it, winning gold by 0.12 seconds over Bowie, with Fraser-Pryce proving she still had something left, as she won gold. Schippers was fifth and Gardner seventh. One week later, Thompson would upset Schippers to complete the sprint double, but Bowie and Gardner would help prevent the sprint triple by leading the USA to victory in the 4x100 relay.
