Day Three Event of the Day
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the pocket rocket. This women is to women’s sprinting what Usain Bolt is to men’s sprinting.
Her victory in London was spectacular, but you know how sprinting is: you are only as good as your last race.
In Moscow, Shelly-Ann ran with one focus: to win. She had a fine start, and just took off, the pocket rocket flying down the track, and winning the gold in 10.71, a world leader.
Murielle Ahoure, from the Ivory Coast, took second in 10.85 and Carmelita Jeter took the bronze in 10.94.
English Gargdner, the new US sprint sensation, was fourth in 10.97!
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce made a statement with her fantastic, world leading run. Many times, the Jamaican is not given the respect that she deserves, but in Moscow, sporting the red hair extensions, Fraser-Pryce let her feet do the talking for her!
