Two hundred meters is twice as tall as the Statue of Liberty. That’s the distance that separates Gabby Thomas from an Olympic medal in Tokyo. She has the fastest time in the world this year — 21.61 seconds at the U.S. Olympic Trials.

That mark is the second quickest ever behind Florence Griffith Joyner in 1988.

Thomas will make her Olympic debut in the first round heats at 9:30 p.m. Sunday. The semifinals follow later that night in Japan, which is 6:25 a.m. Monday.

If she makes it out of them, she’ll contest the final with the fastest women in the world at 8:50 a.m. Tuesday.
