Jamaica's sprint superstar Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce took advantage of the high altitude and clocked a very fast 100m at the Kip Keino Classic, a World Athletics continental tour gold level meeting, in Nairobi on Saturday.
The multiple world championships and Olympic Games gold medalist Fraser-Pryce clocked a very impressive 10.67 seconds to win the 100m. Her time is a new World lead and a joint 12th fastest time in history.
“I’m impressed with the cheering and the love from the fans,” she said. “Kenya has an amazing crowd, I love the hospitality I have received. I’m impressed with the season-best at high altitude.”
The 35-year-old Fraser-Pryce who holds a personal best of 10.60 secs, has now clocked sub-10.70 seconds in the 100m three times in her career. Before Fraser-Pryce the only woman in the world to run three sub-10.70 was the world record holder Florence Griffith-Joyner from the United States.
