ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Despite a slightly faster run in the 100m semi finals on Wednesday July 22, 2015, compared to her heats at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, Tahesia Harrigan-Scott finished 4th and just missed out on a place in the final.

Her time, which placed her 9th overall, was 11.18 seconds, meant she missed out on a spot in the final by .03 of a second.

Jamaica's Sherone Simpson won the 100-metre final at the Pan American-Games in Toronto, Canada, in a time of 10.95 seconds. Ecuador’s Angela Tenorio finished second in 10.99 seconds and was followed by Barbara Pierre of the United States, who finished third in a time of 11.01 seconds.

Next up today, July 23, 2015, Karene King will take on the 200m, Chantel Malone will be competing in the Long Jump and Eldred Henry will throw in the Discus finals.

Harrigan-Scott advanced to the semi-finals in the 100m with a 4th place finish in her first round heat with a time of 11.19. The winner of the heat was USA's Barbara Pierre who just set a Pan Am Record with her time of 10.92.

Tahesia arrived in Toronto having won the 100m race in the US Track and Field Club Championships in New York on July 11 with a time of 11.14. This time is her Seasonal Best and is just .01 off her Personal Best achieved in 2011.

    At this stage of her career 11:18 is very good time. I think her personal best is 11:14. Not bad at all. Which one of you all criticizing her can qualify for anything on the International level?

    She has done the BVI proud and although she is at the tail end of her career she is still an inspiration to the younger runners who may one day take her place.

    Remember she started running before this country even had a proper track so lets not knock her achievements.

    Just leave the woman alone who give you the right to tell people when they need to retire. Out of place how would you feel if someone told you that, if the lady feel she still have it who are you to say different, keep on running ms Scott until you feel you had enough
