The 100m final is one of the most popular and high profile events at the Olympics.

The Women's 100m time had been progressing over time but has been static since the 1980s. This is consistent with most women's athletics records and is likely related to the systemtic doping from that era. However, in 2021 both Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran low 10.6x so the possibility of seeing Florence Griffith-Joyner's world record dropping is increasing.
