DOHA, Qatar – Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has pulled out of the women’s 200m at the 17th IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 in Qatar.

Fraser-Pryce, who won her fourth world 100m title on Sunday night, said it was a coach’s decision for her to withdraw.

“I am not running the 200m; I’m not running,” she said with a smile.
Asked why, Fraser-Pryce replied: “My coach said I’m not running,” she said while laughing out loud.

Fraser-Pryce won her fourth world 100m title in a season-best 10.71, just short of her 10.70 personal best.
