Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce turned the quickest girl alive to run the 100 meter sprint on Saturday and is second to just one different girl in historical past: Florence Griffith Joyner.
Clocking an unimaginable 10.63 at a meet in Kingston on Saturday (June 5), Fraser-Pryce, blowing her competitors away and obliterating the nationwide report of 10.70 that she shared with Elaine Thompson-Herah, who received gold within the 100m on the 2016 Olympics.
Fraser-Pryce’s 10.63 is the fourth-fastest time ever recorded. Flo-Jo had run the three quickest occasions ever in 1988 (10.49, 10.61 and 10.62).
NBC Sports reports the 100m favourite had been 21-year-old American Sha’Carri Richardson. This spring, she had posted occasions of 10.72, 10.74, and 10.77, none of which come near Fraser-Pryce’s Saturday time. Thompson-Herah had been simply behind Richardson with a ten.78, and Fraser-Pryce had been behind each of them with a ten.84, till now final weekend.
With Fraser-Pryce’s 10.63, she’s constructed up some fairly excessive expectations heading into the Tokyo Olympics, which start subsequent month.
