Age doesn’t matter

Even though she is 34-years-old, age does, in fact, seem like just a number for her. Recently, she set a time of 10.60 seconds to defeat the Olympic gold-medalist, Thompson-Herah. Likewise, she finished second by setting a time of 10.64 seconds; Shericka Jackson took home the bronze.

These three Jamaicans have been incredible this season, dominating most of the races. Regardless, Fraser-Pryce thinks the best of her is yet to come.

“Believe it or not, I have still not run my best race – I know there is more to give. I still need to work further on perfecting my technique. There will be more from me this season. My goal is to break into the 10.50-range,” she said
