Jeter turns the tables
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the reigning women’s 100 metres Olympics champion, but the little Jamaican had to settle for second place behind American rival Carmelita Jeter yesterday.
The two engaged in a thrilling sprint to the line at the Athletissima Diamond League meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Both women were clocked at 10.86 seconds but the race was awarded to Jeter, the current World champion.
Trinidad and Tobago’s Kelly-Ann Baptiste took third place in 10.93 seconds.
