Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won the women’s 100-meter World Championships for a record sixth time, while Dina Asher-Smith of Great Britain came in fourth.
The 35-year-old beat over her countrywomen Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Herah for first place on the all-Jamaican podium, who finished in second and third, respectively, in 10.67 seconds to set a championship record.
Amazingly, the two-time Olympic champion’s most recent global championship came 13 years after her first, which she won in Berlin in 2009.
After winning the women’s 100-meter gold medal at the World Championships in Oregon, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce said. “I feel blessed to have this talent and to continue to do it at 35, having a baby, still going, and hopefully inspiring women that they can make their own journey,”.
Dina Asher-Smith of the United Kingdom had to settle for fourth after a Jamaican podium.
