If there were any questions about Jamaica’s domination in the sprints — and there weren’t — Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce provided a convincing answer on Monday.
The 28-year-old Kingston native won her third world championship at 100 meters, matching an impressive career total set by countryman Usain Bolt a couple of days earlier.
Fraser-Pryce started fast out of the blocks and held off silver medalist Dafne Schippers of the Netherlands to win in 10.76 seconds, a time that apparently did not please her.
“I get tired of 10.7s, honestly,” Fraser-Pryce, who has never broken the 10.70 mark, told reporters.
What she lacks in world records, she makes up for in 100-meter gold, having now won at the 2009, 2013 and 2015 world championships and the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics.
Tori Bowie of the U.S. finished third at 10.86.
