Track and field legend Allyson Felix has hailed Jamaica’s clean sweep in the women’s 100-metre on Sunday night’s 4th day of the World Athletics Championships Oregon22 at Hayward Field in Eugene.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce led all the way and crossed the line in 10.67 seconds, ahead of teammates Shericka Jackson, 10.72 and Elaine Thompson-Herah, 10.81.

Felix was among the first to comment, tweeting, “respect for the Jamaica sweep! Beautiful sprinting!!

This is the 1st ever sweep in the women’s 100-metre at the World Championships.

Fraser-Pryce’s time of 10.67 is a championship record, bettering the mark of 10.70 set by Marion Jones (USA) in 1999.

Fraser-Pryce became the first person to win five world titles in an individual running event and, at 35 years old, breaks Justin Gatlin’s record as the oldest world champion in an individual event on the track.

Fraser-Pryce was the previous oldest gold medalist in this event, in 2019, at 32.

Felix was impressed, saying, “35 years old… A mother… 10.67… 5th world title… Yes yes, yes… Fraser-Pryce, it’s your night!!!

Fraser-Pryce also breaks a tie for most medals in the event with American Carmelita Jeter and Jamaican Merlene Ottey, who both won 4 medals.
