Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce leads Jamaica to 1-2-3 finish in Oregon22

(EUGENE, 16 Jul) – Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Herah remained on course for another 1-2-3 finish at the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 at Hayward Field in Eugene.

In the first heat, event favourite Shericka Jackson made light work of the field. She got a reasonably good start but not as quick as Mujinga Kambundji, who she covered very quickly and led off the curve.

So easy was Jackson’s run; she closed it down with about 20 meters out. She crossed the line in 21.67.

Aminatou Seen of Nigeria took the second atomic spot in 22.04. Kambundji finished third with a national record of 22.05.

Elaine Thompson-Herah came up in the second heat and led off the curve but was overtaken by two runners – Tamara Clark and Dina Asher-Smith in the last 50 meters.
Clark’s winning time was 21.95 ahead of Asher-Smith, 21.95. Thompson-Herah, who had a wait to know her fate, finished in 21.97.

Fraser-Pryce quickly dismissed American Abby Steiner, drawn behind her, in the third and final semi-final. Steiner, who ran hard, trailed from the start of the gun.

Fraser-Pryce blasted off the curve and pulled way from Steiner, who had no answer to the Jamaican. Fraser-Pryce had time to ease down across the line in 21.82 ahead of Steiner, 22.15.
