Jamaicans Complete Sweep At World Champs!

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.
