• Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce becomes second-fastest woman in history
Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce became the 2nd fastest woman in the 100m of all time after clocking 10.63 seconds in Kingston on Saturday.
"Honestly, no, I wasn't coming out here to run that fast," said Fraser-Pryce who improved her previous personal best by 0.07 seconds from 2012. "Thank God that I finish healthy.
"There was no pressure. I just wanted to get one more race in before the national trials."
Natasha Morrison finished in second place with another sub-11seconds performance this season of 10.95.
American Florence Griffith-Joyner holds the world record at 10.49 seconds set back in 1988.
