MONACO – After her 10.67-second win on Monday in Hungary, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the first-ever woman to achieve five sub 10.70 times in one season.

Fraser-Pryce ran 10.67 four times this season, in Nairobi (7 May), Paris (18 June), Eugene (17 Jul) and Székesfehérvár (8 Aug). Her season-best and world-leading time of 10.66 came in Chorzów.

She also ran 10.70 at the Jamaica Trials. Her personal best from 2021 is 10.60, and she made it clear she is chasing Florence Delorez Griffith Joyner’s (Flo-Jo) 10.49s.

“It was one of those days where I wasn’t feeling too well, but I just wanted to execute and have a good run,” said Fraser-Pryce for World Athletics.

“I definitely have more to give. I just need to watch the races and work at it a little more. But it definitely feels good to hit 10.6 consistently throughout the year.”

Her chance for a big one could be there on Wednesday at the EBL Herculis Diamond League meeting.
