Eugene (USA): Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Jamaican sprint star, secured a record-extending fifth world 100m title, leading a Jamaican sweep of the medals in a championship record of 10.67 (0.8m/s).
Shericka Jackson bagged silver with personal best timing of 10.73 while five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah claimed won bronze — her first world 100m medal –with a 10.81 run.
With her run in Oregon on Sunday, Pryce became the first athlete to win five world titles in a single individual running event, leading the first-ever sweep of the medals in the 100m dash at the World Championships.
The 35-year-old Jamaican is now a 20-time global medallist – with 13 of those being gold – and she has the chance to add even more to that tally in Oregon as she is also entered for the 200m and 4x100m events.
The first of Fraser-Pryce’s world 100m title wins came in Berlin in 2009, when she ran 10.73.
