World and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce says it was a spontaneous decision that led to her running her first race in two years. The joint national record holder who gave birth last year clocked 11.52 seconds to win her section in the women's 100 metres at the JAAA All Comers meet two weeks ago.
An excited Fraser-Pryce revealed her coach Stephen Francis was very impressed with her during training. “I was more anxious than anything else because being away for so long you want to see how you feel and to get back in the grove. It was really wonderful and i was impressed with the time because I hadn’t raced for almost two years,” said Fraser-Pryce.
Fraser-Pryce was speaking at the opening of her refurbished Resource Centre which will benefit hundreds of youngsters in the Waterhouse community with practical skills.
