She added: “It was such a strong field and to run that time at this stage of the season is amazing…To hear the crowd, who were so loud and receive so much support from the Chinese people was something else. My main focus for the rest of the season is to stay healthy and in one piece. I hope to really win a medal at the Olympics.” 

The Diamond League circuit’s next meeting is scheduled for May 10 in Doha, Qatar, and the women’s 200m will be substituted with the 100m event.
