At the Paris Diamond League competition on Saturday, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won the 100 meters in 10.67 seconds, matching her season best.
After a lightning-fast start, the 35-year-old Jamaican outran the British competitor Daryll Neita by 0.32 seconds and Marie-Josee Ta Lou of the Ivory Coast by 0.34 seconds.
Fraser-Pryce, who finished in the 12th-fastest time in history, said of the race, “It was a wonderful race, and I’m happy with the time.”
It spurs me on to complete the task more quickly.
With a time of 13.16 seconds, American Devon Allen crushed the 110-meter hurdles field.
A month before the world championships in Eugene, Oregon, Allen was constantly in charge at the Charlety stadium despite performing below his personal best.
In the 400-meter race, Shaunae Miller-Uibo also cruised to victory in 50.10 seconds despite sluggishness in the final stretch.
Earlier this month, the Bahamian said that she will not try to become the first woman to win three straight Olympic titles in an individual running competition.
Olympic champion from Canada Andre de Grasse was dissatisfied with his fourth-place finish in the 200-meter race, which was the penultimate leg of the Diamond League before the global championships.
