Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

World 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is ready for Sunday’s (23 May) Gateshead Diamond League clash with American rising star Sha’Carri Richardson.

Fraser-Pryce, who won the Doha 2019 world 100m title, adding to three others in her career, will take on Richardson in heat 1 of the women’s 100m.

“Ready for race day tomorrow!!,” said Fraser-Pryce, a two-time Olympic Games 100m gold medal winner.

Fraser-Pryce has only run two 200m races this season, with her best time 22.66s in Kingston last month.

“It’s been a while since my last international race, and I miss this feeling. Fueled. Focused. Ready,” she wrote.

Elaine Thompson-Herah should have been in the race but withdrew.

British world 200m champion Dina Asher-Smith and Blessing Okagbare of Nigeria,  Marie-Josée TA LOU of Ivory Coast and American Javianne OLIVER should add spark to the field.

Two other Jamaicans, Natasha Morrison and Natalliah Whyte, are on the startlist.
