Popularly known as ‘Pocket Rocket’, Shelly-Ann had plans to retire after the 2021 season. However, after her incredible outing last year, she has officially put a hold on that thought. Apart from her record-breaking time at the Diamond League, Shelly also clinched the gold and silver medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

In the 30s, where the performance of athletes considerably decreases, Fraser-Pryce has reached her peak.

Moreover, Shelly-Ann has already started her training for the next season. Even when circumstances are not in her favor to practice, Shelly is keeping herself going. She recently posted a story on her Instagram revealing how she wasn’t able to do her usual training, so she improvised by training on an Anti-Gravity Treadmill.

She wrote, “Didn’t get to put in my usual training this am but still keeping the momentum #somethinggoodiscoming.”
