Jamaica's Olympic and world 100 meters champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce confirmed that she will make her Commonwealth Games debut in Glasgow this summer.
She also revealed that she plans to compete, for the first time, in the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Indoor Championships when they take place in Sopot, Poland, on March 7 until 9. Fraser-Pryce is not sure whether she wants to run 100 m or 200 m in Glasgow at the Games.

"I'm not sure if it's the 100m or the 200m, but I'm looking forward to doing that," she told reporters. "I've never been to the Commonwealth [Games].

"This Commonwealth Games, I guess, will be a lot different where a lot of countries that will be participating, are countries that have athletes who are doing very well, particularly in female sprinting."

The 27-year-old sprinter added that her training partners Nesta Carter, a double world and Olympic sprint relay champion, and 400m hurdler Kaliese Spencer were also hoping to run at the Commonwealth Games.
