Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has said that she is excited about the prospect of representing Jamaica in the Olympic games. The Jamaican superstar will be hoping to continue with her dominance, having won three Olympic titles in the past.
She said that she is excited by the idea of flying the Jamaican flag on the highest stage. Earlier this year, she announced that she will be retiring after the 2024 Paris Olympics. She revealed that she’s hanging up her boots in order to spend more time with her family. She revealed this information while doing an interview with Essence magazine.
She will be remembered for being the first athlete to win individual medals in 100m races that were held in four consecutive Olympic Games. This will be the fifth time that she participates in this competition.
Over the last few years, the three-time Olympic champion has made herself a household name who is celebrated in all parts of the globe. She has built a strong legacy as on of the fastest women of all time. The fastest time belongs to Florence GRIFFITH-JOYNER(10.49) while the second spot goes to Elaine THOMPSON-HERAH with a time of 10.54. Shelly-Ann FRASER-PRYCE is the third fastest female with a time of 10.60.
The 37-year-old is one of the most decorated sprinters ever. She boasts of eight medals in different Olympic disciplines like 4x100m relays, 200m and 100m races. The iconic sprinter will be hoping to go out with a bang. She will be pushing herself to win even more medals.
All of Jamaica’s hope will be on Fraser-Pryce, Tia Clayton and Shericka Jackson because Elaine Thompson-Herrah will miss the tournament. Thompson-Herrah will not defend her 200m and 100m titles because she is nursing an Achilles injury.
The women’s 100m race is normally one of the most popular events in the Olympics. The event will begin on 26th July 2024, it will run until 11th Aug 2024.
