Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce is the Jamaican Pocket Rocket.
One of the finest sprinters of her era, Shelly Ann is always a fun interview and always speaks her mind. I asked her about her new hair colors for this meet, her fitness (“this is my first race”) and her concern about her Jamaican competitors.
One thing is for certian. SAFP loves to race, and she does not miss the Nike Pre Classic. Her 11.18 was not that impressive, nor was her last place in the 100 meters. But, mark my word, as the races gain importance, Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce wills herself into racing form. Her fitness comes around, but her racing psyche is like few others. If she wants to be defending her titles, she will.
