Ace Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce continues to build on her impressive form with a sporty 10.67 seconds to win the women’s 100m at the Wanda Diamond League in Paris on Saturday (June 18).

Fraser-Pryce, running in lane five, shattered compatriot Elaine Thompson-Herah’s 10.72s meet record in the French capital set in August 2021.

The time also equals the Pocket Rocket’s May 2022 season opener in Nairobi, Kenya.
