Team Jamaica has just secured all three medals in the women’s 100m and becomes the first country to do so in the history of the World Championships, led by sprint superstar Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce on Day 3 of the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, USA.
The 35-year-old stormed to a championship record of 10.67 (the third time she has recorded that mark this year, and in three different continents) to win her fifth world 100m title. Only pole vault legend Sergey Bubka has won more individual world titles in a single discipline.
She was followed home by Shericka Jackson, who clocked a PB of 10.73, and Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah (10.81). In fourth, Dina Asher-Smith equalled the national record of 10.83 she set when taking silver in Doha three years ago.
