MOSCOW, Russia:

World 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the only Jamaican through to the women's 200m final after a comfortable win in the semi-final at the IAAF World Championships in Athletics inside the Luzhniki Stadium.

Anneisha McLaughlin pulled up 20m from the finish line in her semi-final, while Patricia Hall was eighth in a time of 23.26, leaving Fraser-Pryce to carry Jamaica's hopes in the final, which runs off tomorrow at 12.15 p.m Jamaica time.

Fraser-Pryce came off the curve in control of the race and then kept her form through to finish, to stop the clock at 22.54 ahead of Mariya Ryemyen of Ukraine, 22.70, and Charonda Williams (USA), 22.80.
