Shaunae Miller-Uibo remains undefeated on the 2018 outdoor track and field season, as the Olympic gold-medalist picked up another win on Saturday in the women’s 200-metres (m) at the Racers Grand Prix in Kingston, Jamaica.

“I felt really good going into the race,” said Miller-Uibo following the race.

“I came out focused on having a lot of fun and putting on a great show in front of the crowd. The time is very consistent with what I have been doing so far this season, so I am very pleased with the run.

“For the remainder of the season, I’m just focusing on staying healthy and trying to keep my times consistent.”
