SummaryEdit

While they were both introduced in minor roles in 2007, Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser exploded into international stature by winning the 2009 World Championships in the 100 meters for men and women respectively. They brought Jamaican sprinting to the forefront by winning two straight Olympics. Bolt added a third in 2016 capping his spectacular career, but showed fallibility at the 2017 Championships before retiring. Now married, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was on maternity leave in 2017, but her bronze medal in 2016 showed her career had peaked. Nope.

Here, against the Olympic Champion and the defending champion, she dominated the heats, she dominated the semi-finals. In the final, she took the lead on the first step and never relinquished it pulling away to a dominating victory in 10.71. While Marie-Josée Ta Lou was the next fastest out of the blocks, Dina Asher-Smith closed quickly to overtake Ta Lou for a clear silver medal, leaving the defending silver medalist with the bronze.

For Fraser-Pryce at 32, it was only .01 off of her personal best, the number 4 time in history later equalled by Elaine Thompson, the 2016 Olympic Champion and 4th in this race. Asher-Smith's 10.83 was the British national record.
