Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce hinted that she may defend her sprint double titles in Beijing.

Speaking at the press conference ahead of the Stockholm Diamond League, Fraser-Pryce said, "I was down to do the 100m and relay, but the 200m is still possible.”

After her 100m victory at the Jamaica Trials, Fraser-Pryce told journalists she wasn’t sure about the double as her coach is a last minute man.

Two weeks later she said it was only the 100m, but today, another revolution came.

"My coach did say earlier that I was not running the 200m, but last week I was in practice and he said I should do a 100m, a 200m and a 250m,” Fraser-Pryce was quoted by Insidethegames saying.

"I said: 'Why am I going all that way?

"'I’m not running 200m at the World Champs?'

And he said: 'Who says you’re not running?' so I said: 'You did' and he said: 'I’ve changed my mind. I’m not sure.'

"The thing is, I’ve already earned a spot in the 200m as champion, so I wouldn’t be taking it away from anybody else.
