The fastest woman in the world … Price achieves the second best number in history
Jamaican sprinter Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce showed an exceptional performance on Saturday in Kingston, winning the 100m in 10secs 63 parts and becoming the second fastest sprinter in history behind Florence Griffith Joyner, world record holder of 10secs49pc. Four-time world champion and two-time Olympic 100-meter champion Anne Fraser-Price won the 100-meter event in a qualifying event for the Summer Olympics in Japan in a few weeks. The 34-year-old beat American Carmelita, who had the second best record since 2009, when she ran 100 meters in 10 seconds and 64 parts, while the record of 10 seconds and 49 parts has been achieved since 1989. And Carmelita was the first to congratulate the Jamaican with the new number, and she said in a tweet to her: “I know how much effort you made, it was not easy to go back after you gave birth to a child in 2017, congratulations to you, you are the fastest woman on earth.” Thanks to the new record that makes her the current fastest woman, the second-best woman in history, as well as the record in Jamaica to give birth to champions in this discipline, Price became the front-runner for Olympic gold.
