She may be 34, but Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce showed she is no mood to slow down at the Lausanne Diamond League on Thursday (26 August).

The 'Mommy Rocket' took silver behind Elaine Thompson-Herah in the Tokyo 2020 100m, and finished second to her again in last Saturday's Prefontaine Classic in Eugene with Thompson-Herah clocking the second fastest time in history.

But double Olympic 100m champion Fraser-Pryce put one over her fellow Jamaican in Lausanne, taking victory in a new personal best time of 10.60.

Thompson-Herah was closing quickly at the end, and her 10.64 saw her join world record holder Florence Griffith-Joyner as the only women to go under 10.70 three times.
