The Diamond League meet in Monaco yet again mark another milestone for Jamaican “pack it, rock it” Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce as she turned up the heat for another world-leading run.
The 35-year-old Jamaican ran a meet record of 10.62 for victory.
This was the record-extending sixth consecutive final in which the diminutive Jamaican has run faster than 10.70 seconds, and the two-time Olympic champion was quite pleased with the performance but hinted that she is planning to take a break after what has been an intense schedule.
“I had now three back-to-back races so I will take some time for recovery and see what I´m able to do with some rest before I come back,” she said.
“I did what I needed to do, and we had fun and let the clock do the talking. I cannot be disappointed with the season. To be able to run 10.6 consistently means a lot to me. It is remarkable. It is very hard to keep the speed at this high level.
“I´m in my late 30’s and I think I feel like I have more to give. I look forward to doing my personal best for the rest of the season and run fast,” said the Jamaican track star.
