Jamaica’s track and field queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran her fastest 100m time since 2019 at Friday’s (28 May) Diamond League meet.
Fraser-Pryce, who is usually a fast starter, recorded the fastest last 40 meters.
The Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Olympic Games 100m champion ran the first 20 metres in 3.1 seconds. She was timed in 5.1 at 40m and 7.0 at 60m.

American Javianne Oliver matched Fraser-Pryce for the first 40 metres but dropped back 7.1 to 7.0 at the 60m mark.
Blessing Okagbare of Nigeria, who trailed Oliver 3.2 to 3.1 at 20m, 5.2 to 5.1 at 40m, finished very strong.
They were timed at 7.1secs and 9.0secs at 60m and 80m marks, but Okagbare closed fastest in the last 20m to finish with 10.90 to Oliver 11.03.

Julia Haskins-Anderson why don’t you go run the big guns and let us see where you fit in!!
The big guns didn’t race in Doha that’s how she won.
Julia Haskins-Anderson 😂😂😂this funny
Time for her to hang it up. She is right
Julia Haskins-Anderson You are a comedian. If you are not jesting, take some time to go back and peruse her record of sprint accomplishments over the years.
Don’t go back in the past, there is some new sheriff in town!!
Julia, are you referring to the big bust Shacarri who has not won anything except a few races at no name meets.?
Samoi Franklyn read this
Jahnigh Clemmence has her finishing improved compared to other seasons?
Samoi Franklyn dat dem a seh
In Gateshead it did show as tho she was closing (not on Asher tho)
Jahnigh Clemmence that has always been her weak point. I would love to know if this could translate into a big run for her in the 200m
Keep up the good work
Shelly warming up. Congratulations
This is how she Will be celebrating in tokyo 9 weeks from now🙏🙏🇯🇲🇯🇲
Elaine and Shelly r Jamaicans please remember that .What dropped off head dropped on shoulders. We should be glad. 👍🙏🙏🙏🇯🇲
Marva Jones talk truth
But didn’t Shelly-Ann and Elaine Thompson both clock 10.73 recently??
Berthon Powell no. Elaine did 10.78 this season. SAFP, 10.84.
Sensenya Ben Nyah There was a race when they crossed the line together 10.73 photo finish Where??.
Berthon Powell 2019. But Elaine won that race clearly. I don’t think in reality the race was that close. I was there.
Sensenya Ben Nyah my thought too
Sensenya Ben Nyah So where was this? Don’t you see better on the video??😁
Torso vs the head
Two years ago that happened. it was at the national trial in Jamaica. where they both crossed the line in a photo finish.
Michael Leo Henry it was no photo finish. Thompson won clearly
How did she win?
She ran faster and maintained her lead in the closing moments.
