Respect due, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce: GOAT in 100 metres-July 19, 2022

Say it: ‘5 times 100 metres world champion’: that’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce:

The Jamaican women swept, again, as in last year’s Olympics. Hail, too, Shericka Jackson, running 10.73 for 2nd, and Elaine Thompson-Herah 10.81 for 3rd. Having an amazing crop and of the current best sprinters is a wonderful blessing.

Shelly-Ann hit her 2022 peak again in the event, aged 35, running 10.67 seconds, for a championship record, and for the 3rd time this season. She’s just off her personal best/then-national record 10.60 seconds, run in 2021. But, she’s now run under 10.7 5 times in the past 18 months!

Most of the narrative is well-known to Jamaicans. She’s taken time off to give birth, and suffering injuries:

She has a successful hair business, now a decade-old, which she promotes, happily on the track:

Her flowing wigs are a joy to see and trademark to her spirit.
