SHELLY-ANN FRASER-PRYCE has done it again.
The little Jamaican sprinter handed the Caribbean its first success of the London Olympics when she came from behind to storm to victory in the women’s 100 metres last night.
Running out of Lane 7, the defending Olympic champion clocked 10.75 seconds to beat American Carmelita Jeter in a close finish.
Jeter, the reigning World champion, was timed at a season’s-best 10.78 while Jamaican Veronica Campbell-Brown claimed bronze in a time of 10.81, also a season’s best.
With the win, the 25-year-old Fraser-Pryce became the first non-American to repeat as Olympic 100 metres women’s champion. (AP Picture)
