Shelly-Ann at the Diamond League

After a clean sweep of 3 medals at the 2020 Olympics, the Jamaican was in fine form. While competing at the Diamond League in Laussane, the Jamaican beat Elaine Thompson-Herah in the 100m race with an incredible timing of 10.60. Elaine had won 3 gold medals in 100m, 200m and 4x100m at the recent Summer Games. Not only that but she’s also the current “fastest-women alive”. Thus, beating her fellow Jamaican by 0.4 seconds was a huge victory for the 34-year old.

After winning the race she said that “Believe it or not, I still haven’t run my best race”. However, the Jamaican had made plans not to participate at the Paris leg of this league. She said that she is “very tired“. Nevertheless, she seemed happy to have given her best at the tournament and to claim the gold.

On top of this feat, Fraser-Pryce’s time was also the third-fastest time recorded in the history of 100m. The first being Florence Griffith Joyner, with a world record of 10.49, followed by, Elaine Thompson-Herah clocking 10.53. Interestingly, the two Jamaican athletes are very close to breaking the 33-year-old world record held by the legendary, ‘FloJo’.
