Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce again stamped her class as a world-class sprinter, breaking 22 seconds for the first time on the final day of the National Senior Championships at the National Stadium in St Andrew on Sunday morning.
In a repeat of the women’s 100m, it was a battle between the same three athletes in the 200m, but it was the fast-starting Fraser-Pryce who found an extra gear in the latter stage to take the win in a personal best 21.79s. Shericka Jackson was second in a personal best 21.82s, with Elaine Thompson Herah third in 22.02s.
“God is good,” Fraser-Pryce said after the race. “It was all about faith and purpose and it was the right time to wait. I am elated to go sub-22s for the first time and massive, massive big up to my coach Reynaldo Walcott.”
In the men’s 200m, SprinTec Track Club’s Rasheed Dwyer, with the Olympic standard of 20.17s, won ahead of Yohan Blake, second in 20.18s, with third going to 100m champion Tyquendo Tracey, of Swept Track Club, in 20.34s.
