Fraser-Pryce runs fourth-fastest women’s 100m at Diamond League


Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran the fourth-fastest ever women’s 100m, 10.62 seconds, to win at the Diamond League in Monaco.

The five-time world 100m champion, 35, bettered her own mark for the fastest 100m of the year, having clocked 10.66 seconds in Poland on Saturday.

She has now run the third and fourth-fastest women’s 100m times ever.

Fraser-Pryce’s fellow Jamaican Shericka Jackson came second in Monaco with a personal best of 10.71 seconds, while Marie-Josee Ta Lou of Ivory Coast set an African record in third and Britain’s Daryll Neita finished sixth.

It was a third sub-10.70 run within a week for Fraser-Pryce, who missed the Commonwealth Games, as all seven starters went below 11 seconds.

She becomes the first woman in history to break 10.70 six times in the same season, having also won a record fifth women’s 100m world title last month in Oregon. (BBC Sport)
