Fraser-Pryce’s 10.62 season’s best and meeting record makes her the first woman in history to run six sub-10.7 times in one season.
After the race, the five-time world 100-metre champion, who finished ahead of Shericka Jackson, has this to say:-
“I guess I did it at each round. I had three back-to-back races, so I will take some time for recovery and see what I´m able to do with some rest before I come back. I did what I needed to do, and we had fun and let the clock talk. I cannot be disappointed with the season.
“To be able to run 10.6 consistently means a lot to me. It is remarkable. It is very hard to keep the speed at this high level.
“It is important for me to deliver fast times because I´m looking forward for myself to having a great season.
“I´m in my late thirties, and I think I feel like I have more to give. I look forward to doing my Personal Best for the rest of the season and running fast.
“The Monaco track is just great, but I hope the next time I get a lot of wind. I always love it here, the crowd is great, and the track is just super fast. When I came out, it was warm, so I was looking forward to the race.
“As a sprinter, you always want to run on the fast track. The only target I have for the rest of the season is just to run fast. Now, we break, and then we come again. Not sure about Lausanne yet.
