After sharing a video of herself practising block start, some fans of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce have increased their request for info regarding her season opener with the Olympics just around the corner.

Notably, other top female Jamaican sprinters Shericka and Elaine opened their season so far with Elaine looking in not the best of shape while Shericka has been showing steady improvement after some sluggish earlier runs, running to a season’s best of 22.69 on Sunday, June 2, 2024.

On the other hand, overseas, Sha’Carri Richardson looks most impressive so far this season, beating Jackson and running a meet-record of 10.76 seconds in Doha last month. Amidst the good form of Richardson, Jamaicans are eager to see Fraser-Pryce, Jackson and Thompson-Herah return to fitness.

The post that was shared by Shelly-Ann on Instagram on Sunday, showing her in training had the caption, “Momentum takes you forward!”

Shelly-ann who is now 37 years old had a relatively short season last year and picked up an injury last August at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Pryce also has a longstanding knee injury that affected her season last year.

With the fact that she opened her season last year in Jamaica at the National Trials, it is anticipated that she will do the same again this season.

With that said, from now until then, it’s possible that she will open her season in the 100m or 200m, however, with no upcoming race announced, it’s unlikely that she will run before early July.

The Jamaica National Athletics Championships aka National Trials for 2024 is scheduled to take place from June 27 to June 30 at the National Stadium in Kingston Jamaica.
