KINGSTONE - Jamaican runner Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce on Monday again became the world's fastest women by winning the 100-meter race at IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) Beijing 2015, said Jamaica media
The tiny Caribbean runner, Olympic winner in Beijing 2008 and London 2012, dominated the race since the beginning and became world champion with a time of 10.76 seconds.
Fraser-Pryce was followed by Dutch Dafne Schippers with a time of 10.81 seconds.
Bronze medal was for United States' Tori Bowie with a time of 10.86 seconds.
The task of the 28-year-old Jamaican runner was less complicated after her compatriot Sherone Simpson, silver-medal winner at Beijing 2008, missed the final along with Cote d'Ivoire's Murielle Ahoure, silver-medal winner in Moscow two years ago.
