Fraser-Pryce Does It Again! Bags Her 4th World Title At The Age Of 32

An epitome of athleticism, Fraser-Pryce won her 4th world title in Doha.

The  IAAF World Championships in Doha saw Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce return to the top of her game and beat the reigning Olympic champion and countrywoman Elaine Thompson to win the 100 m dash for the fourth time. The second place went to Great Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith, and the third spot was taken by Ivory Coast’s Marie-Josee Ta Lou.

 



 

The champion athlete returned to tracks two years after giving birth to her son, Zyon, who was with her on the tracks after she won the title. Fraser-Pryce revealed  "My secret is just staying humble and just know who you are as a person and athlete and just continue to work hard. She added, "It's a wonderful feeling having my son witnessing this."

With a time of 10.71 seconds, the 32-year-old missed her own personal record by 0.01 seconds which she had set in 2012. It just goes on to reveal the level of performance she is capable of. This was her 8th world title on the whole. This title adds to her collection of World Titles beginning from Berlin (1999), Moscow (2013) and Beijing (2015).
