Double Olympic 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has spoken about the difficulties of training during the lockdown.

In an interview for the Wanda Diamond League Call Room, which will be aired today (4 July), the Jamaican said: “They shut down the national stadium, which is where we train.”

“It started to give me a lot of problems with my knees and my toes because you can’t sprint at the level you want to on a dirt track,” said the Beijing 2008 and London 2012 100m champion.

“It was really hard, and sometimes it was demotivating,” added the Doha 100m champion.

“We had to split into groups because no more than 10 people could be at the track, and we had to be doing track and gym work back to back.”
