Jamaica's sprint superstar, Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce won the global 100m title in a World-leading 10.71 seconds.

Two years ago Fraser-Pryce gave birth to her first child and today she became the 8-time World champion by winning the women's 100m final in Qatar's capital city Doha.

For two days 32-year-old Fraser-Pryce dominated the women's 100m. She was the fastest in heats last night with 10.80 seconds. Today in the semi-finals, the two-time Olympic champion again was the quickest with 10.83 seconds.

Great Britain's Dina Asher-Smith ran a very strong last 30 meters pass Maria-Josee Ta Lou of Ivory Coast and to take silver in a new national record time of 10.83. Ta Lou finished in third place with 10.90 seconds. The two time Rio Olympics champion Elaine Thompson finished in a disappointing 4th place.
