Double Olympic gold medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will publish a tell-all autobiography this year.

The book will detail her many struggles and obstacles along her path to becoming an Olympic champion.

Titled Pryceless Journey, the book, according to a release yesterday, will reveal soul-searching testimony, very personal information, as well as provide success tips in overcoming personal challenges.

Teaming up with veteran journalist Ian Boyne, host of Television Jamaica's long-standing motivational-inspirational programme Profile, Fraser-Pryce said Pryceless Journey will demonstrate the power of positive thinking, diligent application and resilience.

"I am normally a shy and very private person, so some things told in this book will be revealed for the first time, even to some of my closest friends!" she admitted in the release.

"I want people to read this book and be inspired by my personal determination that led to my Olympic success and realise you can accomplish your goals, no matter where you are from," she added.

Ian Boyne, who conducted interviews with Fraser-Pryce over a nearly one-year period said: "Working with Shelly-Ann on this project has been one of the highlights of my career. She is the complete package."

Pryceless Journey will be released locally by Pelican Publishers, with international release to be negotiated and finalised.
