Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce cruised to a victory in the 100 metres at the Jamaican national championships and will head to Tokyo in search of her third Olympic gold medal.
Fraser-Pryce ran the final on Friday night in 10.71 seconds to defeat Shericka Jackson by 0.11s. Elaine Herah finished third.
The 34-year-old Fraser-Pryce won her fourth world title at the 100 meters in 2019, two years after having a son, Zyon. She is the 2008 and 2012 Olympic champion and won bronze in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
Her victory sets up a matchup with American champion Sha’Carri Richardson, who is 13 years younger than Fraser-Pryce.
In the men’s 100, Yohan Blake qualified for his third Olympics by finishing second behind Tyquendo Tracey, who won that final in 10 seconds flat.
