SPRINT LEGEND Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica, one of the greatest female sprinters of all time, is the 2019 Everybody’s, the Caribbean-American magazine, Person of the Year.
A magazine reader wrote: “I suggest Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, mother, sprinter and Jamaican Olympian. At age 32, Fraser-Pryce did the improbable; she won her fourth IAAF World Championship title in the 100m dash after having a child.
“Not only is she a worthy competitor, she gives back to the community where she grew up. She is humble and has a beautiful spirit and a strong mind.
The Person of the Year for 2019 is included in Everybody’s 2020 Global Caribbean Calendar edition. The calendar lists all major events in the region and Caribbean communities worldwide such as carnival and independence dates.
Fraser-Pryce validated her undisputed track and field greatness at this year’s World Athletics Championships held in Doha, Qatar. Her 100m victory meant that Fraser-Pryce became the first mother to win an Olympic or world 100m title since Gwen Torrence in 1995 and the oldest woman ever to win an Olympic or world 100m title at 32-years-old.
