Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce picked up where she left off last season on Saturday (7 May) with a world-leading 100m time of 10.67 at the Kip Keino Classic in Nairobi. 

The victory is Fraser-Pryce’s 2nd fastest time ever, only trailing her PB of 10.60 set at the end of last year in Lausanne. 

She got a brilliant start, with the quickest reaction time and only powered away from the field after that. 

“It was very good; the atmosphere was fantastic,” Fraser Pryce told reporters. 

“I’m not sure if it was perfect – I’d have to see the replay. But the time tells me that my training has been going great.”

Going into the race, it was hyped as Fraser-Pryce versus Budding Namibian sprinter Christine Mboma, who took silver in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic 200m.

Mboma, who also holds the World Junior Record in the aforementioned half-lap, ended up pulling up 60 meters in from a hamstring injury. 

Egyptian Bassant Hemida finished second in 11.02, and American Shannon Ray took third in 11.33.

Fraser Pryce even visited her fallen competitor in the medical facility afterwards. “I’m sure you’ll be good; you’ll be back.” Said Fraser Pryce to a stretched out Mboma. “You just need to rest, treat and keep the headstrong, and you will be good”.

 As she ultimately looks to claim her fifth World Title in Eugene this July, Fraser Pryce’s next stop will be at the Prefontaine Classic on 28 May.

  1. Incredible performance from the greatest of all time.

    Just one correction: this 10.67 is her 3rd fastest time ever, not 2nd (she ran both 10.60 and 10.63 last year).
