Jamaica’s Dream Team Strikes Again – 1-2-3 At Diamond League!

On Thursday, Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce clocked the third-fastest women’s 100-metre time in history to win gold in the women’s 100m final at the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Fraser-Pryce bettered her personal best by 0.03 which was set in Jamaica in June.

In a post race interview, she said: “It’s been a long season but for me I never give up, keep working hard and staying committed to the task.”

Her compatriots Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shericka Jackson finished second and third with times of 10.64 and 10.92 respectively.


The Jamaicans were aided by a healthy but legal 1.7m/s tailwind and were explosive out of the blocks.

Thompson-Herah for a brief moment seemed destined to catch her teammate but ultimately was unable to do so.
