Los Angeles Grand Prix

The upcoming 2024 Los Angeles Grand Prix showcases athletes with talents set to compete against one another and claim victories in their athletic careers. In the women’s 200-meter dash event, a compelling match-up between two of the best athletes in the world awaits. 

Gabrielle Thomas is undoubtedly one of the fastest athletes to ever run in the said division. Currently, she is ranked as the fourth fastest of all time in the women’s 200-meter category, with an exceptional record of 21.60 seconds. 

However, Abby Steiner is set to compete with Thomas once again as she comes back to the athletics field. 

Los Angeles Grand Prix: Steiner VS Thomas

Steiner and Thomas had competed against each other at three different events at the same given distance, wherein the former won once, and the latter twice. 

Back in the 2022 US Nationals, Steiner won her first match-up against Thomas, with a record performance of 21.7 seconds. In 2023, Thomas bounced back by picking up her speed and taking the win in Paris with a time of 22.05. At the 2023 US Championships, Thomas ran and won her legendary race with a record of 21.60 seconds. 

This year, both athletes have exhibited strength. Thomas successfully places her name in the top spots of the 2024 World Athletic Relays. She ran at the 4×100 and 4×400 relay division, and had a record of under 50 seconds in the latter event. It is important to note that Thomas is undefeated in any sprinting events this year. 

On the other hand, Steiner has been showing great improvements, and she is becoming a threat to snatch Thomas’ wins. She is also undefeated in any individual race that she has competed in so far.
