On Sunday night, Jamaica’s ‘pocket rocket’ Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won an unprecedented fifth 100m world title at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon.
Fraser-Pryce finished in a championship record of 10.67 seconds.
Her compatriots Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Herah finished second and third with times of 10.73 and 10.81 respectively.
The trio first accomplished the feat at the Tokyo Olympics last summer.
On that occasion, Thompson-Herah won, followed by Fraser-Pryce and Jackson.
The result has now opened Jamaica’s medal count in Euguene, Oregon, with three medals.
1, 2, 3, for 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲 CLEAN SWEEP 🧹🧹🧹
