Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce becomes the 2nd mom in history to win an Olympic or world 100 m title since Gwen Torrence in 1995. The 32-year-old is the oldest female ever to win and Olympic or World Championship title.
Fraser-Pryce in 2008 rose to the international spotlight at the age of 21 by becoming the first Caribbean woman to win Jamaican to win 100m Gold at the Olympics. Nicknamed the “Pocket-Rocket” she took a break from the sport in 2017 to have her first child. Shelly is the mother of two children and is referred to as one of the ‘greatest female sprinters of all time.” Born in Kingston she is not new to her world records, in fact she has won 4 times the first over a decade ago again in 2013, 2015 and 2019. I definitely will be watching her make her way to 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games.
