Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce Wins 5th World 100m Title In Jamaican Clean Sweep

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won her record fifth world 100m title in Eugene, Oregon, leading an unprecedented Jamaican clean sweep of the podium.

It was the first time a nation had swept the medals in the women’s 100m at the worlds and came just a day after Fred Kerley led a US sweep of the men’s blue riband event, albeit for the third time in worlds history.

Fraser-Pryce is also the first athlete to ever win five gold medals in a track event at the World Championships in the same discipline, with Sunday’s win following 100m golds in 2009, 2013, 2015 and 2019.
