Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce said she is still not back to her best since giving birth in 2017.
The 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games 100m champion at the Prefontaine Classic Press Conference, was asked: “Is there anything that you can’t do at this moment that you would like to do in training?
“Yes, there are a lot of things that I am still not able to get accurately, and that’s because I’ve not been racing competitively,” she said.
“I needed more competitive racing and races, especially at my national championships with Elaine, as well. For me, it’s trying to cement that first 30 and making sure the last 20 metres, I focus more on my technique,” she explained.
Fraser-Pryce finished second at the Jamaica Trials in 10.73secs, the same time as joint world leader Elaine Thompson.
Fraser-Pryce will face American Sha’Carri Richardson, who ran a new world junior record of 10.75, the second fastest time in the world this year.
Tiger skips 3M Open, eyes Northern Ireland showpiece
Tiger Woods confirmed that he will not play in next week’s 3M Open and will return to competition for The Open Championship in Northern Ireland beginning July 18.
Woods has not played since tying for 21st at the U.S. Open last month. He wasn’t expected to play in this week’s inaugural event in Blaine, Minn., despite missing the cut at the PGA Championship last month after remaining out of competition following his win at the Masters in April.
Woods said that he plans to “enjoy some family time” and will prepare for the year’s final major at Royal Portrush by playing at home.
He is ranked No. 5 in the world and needs one win to tie Sam Snead’s record of 82 PGA Tour victories, but has acknowledged that at 43 years old, he needs to plan his schedule carefully — especially with the new schedule featuring six prominent events — including all four majors — over six consecutive months.
Woods has won 15 major championships, including three Opens (2000, 2005, 2006).
