World and Olympic Games 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has pulled out of Saturday’s Shanghai Diamond League.
Fraser-Pryce, who chases her third straight 100m title in Rio this summer, was down to contest the women’s 200m.
However, the organizers released a statement today (11 May) saying “top sprinter Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce unfortunately has to cancel her participation in the IAAF Diamond League Shanghai.”
According to the release, “she is not able to compete due to a small toe injury. She currently gets treatment and expects to be fit on a short notice.”
The pocket rocket sprinter also withdrew from last Saturday’s Jamaica Invitational held at the National Stadium in Kingston.
“Fraser-Pryce is disappointed that she can not compete in Shanghai, as she was looking forward to the meet,” the release concluded.
