Three-time world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce exuded confidence of returning to her peak form following an easy 7.21 second clocking over 60 metres at the Queen’s/Grace Jackson Invitational meet in Kingston on Saturday.
“This year I’m just looking forward to putting the pieces together and try to get back to where I was and so far (coach) Stephen Francis and I have been working and I’m just excited about the outcome (of today’s race),” the Jamaican told reporters moments after crossing the finishing line.
The 32-year-old Jamaican’s career-best 10.70 seconds in 2012 is the joint fourth fastest time ever over 100m along with compatriot Elaine Thompson.
Fraser-Pryce, who ran in section two exploded from the block and pulled away for an easy win ahead of training partner and Rio Olympics 100m and 200m gold medallist Thompson who came second in her season debut at 7.24 seconds.
