BBC has named Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce among its top 100 most influential women in the world for 2019.

In September, Fraser-Pryce, who missed the London 2017 World Athletics Championships due to the birth of her child, returned to win the 100m title in Doha 2019.

The gold medal was Fraser-Pryce’s fourth since her first victory in 2009. She is the only woman to win the 100m on four occasions at the IAAF World Athletics Championships.

The 32-years-old sprinter, according to BBC, noted that she carried her two-year-old son Zyon, on her lap of honour, saying she wanted to “inspire women thinking of starting a family”.

Bahraini Salwa Eid Naser is also on the BBC’s list.
