Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce wins big at Jamaica Trials

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Yohan Blake lead the 100m fields going into Friday’s (24 June) semi-finals on day one of Jamaica Trials at the National Stadium.

Fraser-Pryce, who led from start to finish, recorded the day’s fastest time of 10.70. Her run, some are speculating, could be her only appearance in the 100m.

Briana Williams, who trailed Fraser-Pryce, but backed off towards the finish line, was timed in a season-best 10.98.

Elaine Thompson-Herah, earlier ran 11.06 to take the top spot in heat three. She beat Natasha Morrison, who finished in 11.10 in her heat.

Kemba Nelson just edged out Shericka Jackson, 10.97 to 10.98 in heat three, while Shashalee Forbes ran 11.23 to beat Natalliah Whyte, 11.37 in heat four.

Yohan Blake won heat two of the men’s 100m in 9.93 seconds, his fastest time this season. Kemar Bailey-Cole, returning from injuries in the previous season, also ran a season best of 10.06 for second behind Blake.

Oblique Seville, among the favourites for the national title, won heat one in 9.98 ahead of Jelani Walker, 10.07.

Conroy Jones ran a massive personal best, 10.00, to take the top spot in heat three ahead of Ackeem Blake, 10.01.

Kadrian Goldson ran 10.16 to book his place in the final.
