Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce via a social media post on Thursday, informed those who did not know that she is the first of her kind, not just for her blistering speed but for her remarkable resilience and dedication. She is the first 100m sprinter to win a world title after giving birth, a feat that highlights her exceptional talent and determination.

The caption of the post reads, “Mum’s the word. Shelly-Ann is the first 100m sprinter to ever win a world title after giving birth. Raising her son now takes priority over competitions but hasn’t held the athlete back from staying at the top of her game. 📸André Ferreira.”

The post was a joint endeavour with luxury watch brand Richard Mille, she inked a deal with the brand in 2023. The first picture of the slide shows the three-time Olympic champion, arguably the greatest female sprinter ever helping her son Zyon with homework.

After giving birth to her son, Fraser-Pryce faced the daunting challenge of balancing motherhood with the demands of elite-level competition.

Raising her son has become her foremost priority, yet this profound change has not deterred her from maintaining her status as one of the world’s premier sprinters. In fact, it seems to have fueled her ambitions and sharpened her focus.

One of the images shared on July 13 shows Fraser-Pryce playing football with Zyon with herself in the goal as he kicked a red football.

Fraser-Pryce’s journey back to the pinnacle of sprinting began with her remarkable comeback at the 2019 World Championships in Doha. Just two years after becoming a mother, she clinched the gold medal in the 100m, clocking an impressive 10.71 seconds.

This victory was not just a personal triumph but a symbolic moment for athletes worldwide, showcasing that motherhood and professional sports need not be mutually exclusive.

The last photo in the slide seemingly shows her leaving training with her belongings.

Days ago, her Facebook page announced that through her charitable organisation, the Pocket Rocket Foundation she helped 25 young athletes, donating $100, 000 to each athlete over the past year.
