SUPERMOM Fraser-Pryce 100m World Champion

 

Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce won the 100 Metres final giving Jamaica its second gold medal at the IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar on Sunday, September 29.

Fraser Pryce beat the talented field with a blistering world leading time, of 10.71 seconds. It was her fourth World 100 metres title.

In a superfast women’s 100m final, the well-decorated super mum magnificently delivered when it mattered the most – in control from start to finish.

Asher-Smith of Great Britain pulled out a new personal best and a new national record in the process for second, becoming Britain’s first female World Championships sprint medallist for 36 years.

Ivory Coast’s Marie-Josee Ta Lou was third, clocking 10.90 seconds.

Elaine Thompson, the defending World Champion finished fourth in 10.93 seconds and Jonielle Smith finished sixth in 11.06

Fraser-Pryce now has eight world titles across individual and relay events, with 100m world titles in 2009, 2013, 2015 and 2019.
