SAFP to miss the 2017 season KINGSTON (JAM): Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will miss the 2017 season as she is expecting her first child, informs Track Alerts. “All my focus heading into training for my 2017 season was on getting healthy and putting myself in the best possible fitness to successfully defend my title in London 2017. But life is filled with many blessings with God. So here I am thinking about being the greatest mother I can be with my biggest blessing and the promise God made me,” she said on her social media accounts. Fraser-Pryce is aiming to return to action in 2018.
RunBlogRun opines: SAFP is one of the most delightful characters in our sport. She is also one of the most ferociously competitive athletes in our sport. I have interviewed her over several years, when she had rough starts to seasons and she would round into racing shape, as the Jamaican pocket rocket would run down the competition.
