Contrary to reports that world top sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce would retire after Eugene 2021 World Athletics Championships, the Jamaican has moved to clear the air on that issue.
Fraser-Pryce cleared the air in a tweet on Wednesday (19 Feb) morning, saying “I will stop when I’m finished…….until then one year at a time.”
I will stop when I’m finish…….until then one year at a time?

On Tuesday, Fraser-Pryce was quoted saying “after Tokyo, I am the defending champion at the world championships in Eugene and that is so close to home. It’s a few hours (flight) from Jamaica and to be able to end a career close to home, where I can have most, if not all, of my family in attendance, would be the highlight of my career.
“I am taking it a year at a time. After Tokyo, I can make that decision,” she said.
The 32-year-old has an illustrious career since her breakthrough year in 2008. She won back to-back-back Olympic Games titles in Beijing 2008 and London 2012.
She won a historic four world 100m titles in Berlin 2009, Moscow 2013, Beijing 2015 and Doha 2018. She added the 200m title in 2013.
