World champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce scorched the track with the fastest time over 100 metres this year at the Monaco Diamond League meeting on Wednesday, winning the race in 10.62 seconds to comfortably beat Shericka Jackson and Marie-Josee Ta Lou.
Fraser-Pryce runs a huge world-leading 10.62 and takes 100m victory! She becomes the first woman in history to break 10.70 six times in the same season.
Fresh from a fifth world title in Eugene, Oregon last month, Fraser-Pryce had produced blistering performances to clock 10.66 at the Silesia Diamond League event on Saturday and 10.67 at the Hungarian Grand Prix two days later.
She went even quicker in ideal conditions at Monaco’s Stade Louis II to easily break the 10.70 barrier for the sixth time in a stellar season, while Jackson (10.71) and Ta Lou (10.72) also ran personal bests in an absorbing race.I did what I needed to and we had fun and let the clock do the talking… to be able to run 10.60 consistently means a lot. It’s remarkable. It’s hard to keep up the speed at this high level,” the 35-year-old Fraser-Pryce said.
“I’m in my late thirties and I feel I have more to give. I look forward to do my personal best (10.60) during the rest of the season and run fast…. Now, we break and then we come again. I’m not sure about Lausanne (on Aug. 26) yet.”
