Video: Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce wins fifth 100m world title, leads Jamaican podium sweep


Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the fastest woman in the world. Again.

Fraser-Pryce won the women’s 100m on Sunday night at the 2022 World Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon, in a championship record of 10.67 seconds. In doing so, the 35-year-old becomes the first athlete to win five world titles in an individual running event, as well as the oldest world champion in an individual event on the track.

Fraser-Pryce led a Jamaican sweep of the women’s 100m podium, with Shericka Jackson claiming silver in 10.73 (personal best) and Elaine Thompson-Herah picking up bronze in 10.81. (A video highlight of the women’s 100m final is embedded above.)

The three Jamaican women also swept the podium at last year’s Tokyo Olympics, though in a different order (Thompson-Herah, Fraser-Pryce, Jackson). All three are also slated to compete in the 200m — as well as the 4x100m relay — later this week at Hayward Field.
