Jamaican sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has had one of the most outstanding seasons in track and field history. After dominating the 100m at the World Championships and achieving several stunning times, he has only one goal left: to keep running fast.
Earlier this week, the sprinter clocked a fast time of 10.62 in the Monaco Diamond League encounter. The time was the athlete’s best this season and just two hundredths of a second off his personal best. Even more remarkable was the fact that the performance scored the sprinter’s 6e less than 10.7 times this season, the most female athletes in history.
Despite everything she has achieved so far, the sprinter is not quite ready to end the season yet.
“Being able to run 10.6 consistently means a lot to me. It’s remarkable. It’s very difficult to keep the speed at that high level,” Fraser-Pryce said.
“It’s important for me to achieve fast times because I’m looking forward to having a great season,” she added.
“I’m in my late thirties and I think I feel like I have more to give. I’m looking forward to doing my best for the rest of the season and running fast.
“As a sprinter you always want to run in the fast lane. The only goal I have for the rest of the season is just to run fast. Now we take a break, then we come back. I am not yet sure of Lausanne.
With five events to go, Fraser-Pryce is also in contention for the 100m Diamond League title.
