KINGSTON, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Five months since her last race, four-time world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce clocked 11.00 seconds in the women's 100m sprint at the Velocity Fest meeting here on Saturday.

Despite a stiff -2.2m/s headwind, the two-time Olympic champion won the 100m with the fastest time in the world so far this year.

At the 2019 World Championships in Doha, at the age of 32, Fraser-Pryce became the oldest woman and second mother in history to win gold at the 100m at a global championships.

Earlier this year, the Jamaican sprinter said the defence of her women's 100m sprint gold at the worlds in Eugene, Oregon in 2022 could be her farewell from athletics.
