SPRINT LEGEND Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce landed her eighth Worlds gold for Jamaica when she won the 100m final at the World Athletics Championships in Doha.
Great Briton Dina Asher-Smith claimed silver with a national record of 10.83 seconds behind the Jamaican’s blistering 10.71. Ivorian Marie-Josee Ta Lou took bronze.
Fraser-Pryce, now a proud mother, admitted to some pre-final nerves.
“I just could not sleep last night. I’m glad I cam out here with my experience knowing that some days are going to be good and others bad – but it is the mental toughness that will get you through.
“My family have been my strength. When everybody else doubted, they never did.
For me, having my son and coming back, performing the way I did should provide some inspiration for women that are thinking of starting a family or have already started one. You can do anything, it is about who you are.”
