Fraser-Pryce Retains World 100m Title

Double-Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce continued the Jamaican sprint dominance of the Bird’s Nest as she retained her world 100m title in blistering fashion at the World Championships.
Twenty-four hours on from Usain Bolt’s triumph in the men’s 100m, Fraser-Pryce repeated her Olympic victory in this same stadium seven years ago as she held off the fast-finishing Dafne Schippers in 10.76 seconds.
For Schippers – the former heptathlete who only decided to switch full-time to sprinting in June this year – her silver in a huge personal best of 10.81 brought both vindication and wild celebration.
USA’s Tori Bowie took bronze in 10.86, but as in 2008 this was the Fraser-Pryce show.
