Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce 3rd in 100m at London Diamond League

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce finished third in the Women’s 100m in 11.06 seconds (-0.7) at the London Muller Anniversary Games after being chased by Marie-Josee Ta Lou of Ivory Coast, who won in a personal best of 10.96 seconds.

Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad also overtook Fraser-Pryce, a double Olympic 100m champion, to finish second in 10.99. Dina Asher-Smith was fourth in 11.09.  Jamaica’s Christania Williams and Simone Facey finished seventh (11.19) and last (11.22) respectively.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was named to compete in the Women’s 100m at the 2016 Rio Olympics set for August 5-21 — where she will aim to be the first woman to become a triple Olympic 100m champion. Fraser-Pryce, also seven-time World Champion, is also set to run in the Women’s 4x100m in Rio, but not the 200m. She was the 2012 Olympic silver medalist and the 2013 world champion in the 200m.
