Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce Stats: What are her top ten best 100-meter timings?

The women’s 100m race is regarded as one of the most prominent events in athletics. The race consists of a sprint over a distance of 100 meters and is regarded as one of the most thrilling events in track and field. The first official women’s 100m race was conducted at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, where Betty Robinson of the United States became the event’s first gold medalist. The competition has grown in recognition on a global scale and is now among the most-watched athletics events.

Florence Griffith-Joyner, popularly known as Flo-Jo, is one of the most renowned figures in the history of the women’s 100m sprint. She established the present world record of 10.49 seconds at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, an achievement that still holds today. In recent years, the women’s 100m event has continued to grow, with new stars rising and destroying records. Among the athletes who have established themselves in this field are Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Elaine Thompson-Herah, and Shericka Jackson. On the other hand, athletes like Dina Asher-Smith from Great Britain and Sha’Carri Richardson are making waves and have already announced their arrival.
