Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

It was a sprinting sweep for Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who took home the gold medal in the 200M in Moscow on Friday.
Fraser-Pryce’s victory came after a gold in the women’s 100M as well.
In a race that wasn’t really close, the Jamaican finished in 22.17, followed by Cote d’Ivoire’s Murielle Ahoure, who finished in 22.32, the same time as third-place finisher Blessing Okagbare of Nigeria.
The Bahamas’ Shaunae Miller finished fourth with a time of 22.74 seconds, a strong time for a sprinter barely 19 years of age — and one who could be one to watch in the years to come.
Fraser-Pryce’s strong showing continued Jamaican sprinting dominance — on the men’s side, Usain Bolt also won gold in the 100M and looks to complete the sweep Saturday.
It is the first time a Jamaican woman has completed the sweep of the 100M and 200M at the World Championships.

Usain Bolt
By the Caribbean Journal staff
Usain Bolt is on top of the world right now.
Bolt anchored Jamaica to a thrilling victory in the men’s 4x100M relay at the World Championships on Sunday, holding off the United States with a world-leading time of 37.36.
The US finished in 37.66, while Canada finished third with a time of 37.92, a season-best time.
Bold is simply unbeatable right now, with a three-gold-medal performance to match his performance in London in 2012.
Jamaica’s win was its fifth straight global 4 x 100M title, thanks to strong running from Nesta Carter, Kemar Bailey-Cole, Nickel Ashmeade and Bolt, who finished the win to help Jamaica to yet another 4x100M championship.
The victory was even more impressive given the absence of the injured Yohan Blake, who helped win the gold in London last summer.
The win gave Jamaica a total of nine medals, good for third best at the 14th IAAF World Championships, and six gold medals, tied for second overall.
