Fraser-Pryce Clocks 10.63s to Set New 100m National Record


(Jamaica Observer) Kingston, Jamaica – Jamaica’s multiple World and Olympic Champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran a stunning 10.63 seconds (1.3m/s) in the 100 metre, to set a new national record and become the second fastest woman of all time at this morning’s third staging of the Jamaica Olympic Association/Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association Olympic Destiny Series at the national stadium in Kingston.

Fraser-Pryce who shared the national record with Elaine Thompson-Herah at 10.70 seconds and had a season’s best 10.84 seconds, moved past Americans Marion Jones-10.65 seconds and Carmelita Jeter- 10.64 seconds into second all-time behind world record holder, the late Florence Griffith-Joyner-10.49 seconds.

Fraser-Pryce was as stunned as anyone else who witnessed her blazing run saying afterwards, “honestly no I wasn’t coming out here to run that fast, thank God that I finish healthy.”
