Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce wins 100m gold

Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce narrowly held off Dafne Schippers of the Netherlands to retain her 100m World Championships title in Beijing. Fraser-Pryce, 28, started strongly but was almost caught by Schippers on the line as she crossed in 10.76 seconds. It was a sixth career gold at the World Championships for Fraser-Pryce, who won the 100m and 200m double in 2013. Schippers, a heptathlete bronze medallist two years ago, finished ahead of American Tori Bowie in third. Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare came last in the star studded final.
