Five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah will not be defending her 200m title at this year's Games in Paris.

The 31-year-old became the first woman to win back-to-back Olympic sprint doubles at Tokyo 2020 when she retained her 100m and 200m titles.

Thompson-Herah will not be able to achieve the feat again, however, after opting to only cover 100m at the upcoming Jamaican trials.

She appeared to sustain an injury while competing in the 100m at the NYC Grand Prix earlier this month.

The Jamaican is the second-fastest woman in history over that distance, though injuries have disrupted her competition schedule in the last year.

The athletics events at the Paris Olympics will take place between August 1-11.
