Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has been on the sprint scene since 2008. She has won eighteen medals in global championships since then. In 2021, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce took the silver in the 100 meters, and gold in the 4 x 100 meters.
Do not underestimate SAFP, ever. She is terribly competitive, and she does not give up until after the finish line is passed. SAFP knows how to compete, and knows that she wants to compete. She is fascinating to watch in each and every competition.
In 2013, in an interview with Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, SAFP told me that she needs to race a lot, that is how she gets herself in racing shape.

In 2021, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran 10.60 in Lausanne, Switzerland, and defeated Olympic champion, Elaine Thompson. She also ran 21.79 for 200 meters.
Those who think that SAFP is considering retirement are wrong.
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce arrived in Nairobi on May 4, 2022. She is quite popular in Kenya and media and fans arrived to meet her.
SAFP gave the fans at the KIP KEINO CLASSIC something to cheer about with her fine 10.67 opener at the 100 meters. Opening at 10.67? The voice inside our heads goes, what is next Shelly-Anny Fraser-Pryce?

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has had a long career. One of the reasons, besides the endurance she builds over the winter, that SAFP has had such a long career is that she has a full life.
