Shelly lowers 60m PB again
Back-to-back Olympic 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce continues to show improvement in the 60 metres after winning at the XL Galan meet in Stockholm, Sweden, yesterday with her third consecutive personal best.
Fraser-Pryce, who is attempting the indoor circuit for the first time in her career, made an impressive debut last week at the British Athletics Grand Prix meet in Birmingham, winning her heat in 7.18 seconds before finishing second in the final with a time of 7.09 seconds.
The diminutive Jamaican continued her hot streak, winning ahead of Ukrainian Mariya Ryemyen, 7.18, and Myriam Soumaré (France), 7.22, with a 7.04 seconds run - her fastest time over the distance so far, after three starts.
The 26-year-old took to social media platform Twitter, shortly after the race, thanking her fans for the support and looking forward to her next indoor outing.
NEW WORLD LEADS ESTABLISHED
The women's 1500m was also taken in world-leading fashion as Abeba Aregawi broke the tape in front of her home crowd with 3:58.40 on the clock, which also registers as the new national indoor record for Sweden.
