The eighth episode of the current season of IAAF Inside Athletics is available to watch online now and features an exclusive interview with double Olympic sprint champion Elaine Thompson.

After her runner-up finish in an epic 200m showdown with Dafne Schippers at the IAAF World Championships Beijing 2015, the 24-year-old Jamaican has become the world's top female sprinter. Her performance in Rio, where she took both the 100m and 200m titles, was the first women's Olympic sprint double victory in 28 years.

IAAF Inside Athletics is hosted by Trinidad and Tobago’s 1997 world 200m champion Ato Boldon. To watch episodes of IAAF Inside Athletics as soon as they are released, follow the IAAF World Athletics Club Facebook page.
