Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce Opts Out of 200m Race at World Championships

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, the current World 100 meters champion, is opting out of the Women’s 200m race at this year’s World Championships set to unfold in Budapest, Hungary, according to reports.

Fraser-Pryce secured a second-place finish in the 100-meter and 200-meter events during Jamaica’s national championships last month.

Her second-place finishes qualified her to run both races at the world championships as part of the 65-member Jamaican squad.


Yet, according to Nationwide Sports, Shelly-Ann has conveyed her decision to the Jamaican authorities to abstain from competing in the 200-meter category during the Budapest event.

However, focused on a remarkable sixth World title in the 100 meters, Fraser-Pryce is directing her efforts singularly towards this goal, alongside her anticipated participation in the 4×100 meters relay team.

The global athletic spectacle is scheduled to unfold between August 19 and 27, promising exhilarating competition and electrifying performances on the track.
