Fraser-Pryce fastest into 100 final

Jamaican sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is in the box seat to claim an unprecedented third Olympic women’s 100m title after qualifying fastest for Sunday night’s final.

Fraser-Pryce won the third of three semis in 10.73 seconds.

She will be joined in the final by defending champion Elaine Thompson-Herah (10.76) , fellow Jamaican Shericka Jackson (10.79) and Marie-Josee Ta Lou from the Ivory Coast (10.79), who was quickest in the opening-round heats.

The only US sprinter to qualify for the women’s 100m final to be run at 2250 AEST was Teahna Daniels.

Fraser-Pryce won the 2008 and 2012 Olympic 100m titles and was third in the final five years ago in Rio won by Thompson-Herah.
