Track and field queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is expected to launch her Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games champaign on Saturday.
Fraser-Pryce, who won a record four world 100m titles, is set to run a special women’s 60m at the Milo Western Relays, set for GC Foster College in Spanish Town.
Shauna Helps and Jodean Williams are also expected to be in the field.
Jamaica’s most successful female sprinter won four world titles, Berlin 2009, Moscow 2013, Beijing 2015 and Doha 2019. She also won back-to-back Olympic Games 100m titles in Beijing 2008 and London 2012. Rio 2016 brought bronze.
The meet will also act as a warmup for the Muller Indoor Grand Prix Glasgow set for 15 February. She will face World Indoor 60m champion Murielle Ahoure in the women’s 60m.
Fraser-Pryce has a personal best over 60m of 6.98, the eighth-fastest time in history. The time gave her gold at the World Indoor Championships, Sopot 2014.
