Jamaican Olympic 100m winner Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran a national record and the world’s fastest women’s 100m time in over 30 years on Saturday, June 5th in Kingston, at the national stadium. Shelly-Ann stopped the clock at 10.63 and re-established herself as the favourite for the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo where she will be looking to win her 3rd gold medal in the event.
The 34-year-old reigning world champion explains that she has been doing some “Crazy training” leading up to today’s event. The new national time is the second-fastest time in history with Florence Griffith-Joyner who is from the USA holding the world record which is at 10.49sec.
