Three-time Olympic gold medalist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce matched her world-leading time of the year, crossing the line at 10.67 seconds to win the 100 meters Saturday at the Diamond League meet in Paris.
Her Paris race equaled her May 7 world-leading time, the only other 100 Fraser-Pryce ran this year.
Reigning Olympic 100 champion and Fraser-Pryce rival Elaine Thompson-Herah is second-fastest of the year with a time of 10.79.
The two could face off in the Jamaican Championships, should Thompson-Herah decide to compete even though she has a bye into July’s world championships 100-meter event as the defending champion.
Fraser-Pryce will look to dethrone Thompson-Herah at the Eugene-hosted world championships as she goes for her 10th career gold medal.
