On August 6, 2017, Tori Bowie was proclaimed world champion of the 100 meters in London. On August 7, 2017, Zyon was born, the son of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who yesterday witnessed that his mother, rather than running, flies. The fantastic Jamaican sprinter missed a World Cup to give birth and be able to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics. But before the Games was Doha, the reunion of Pryce with the great competition. The reunion with gold. It is the fourth he gets in a World Cup on the hectometer, after those achieved in 2009, 2013, where he doubled, also imposing himself in 200, and in 2015. He is 32 years old and the impulse to be a mother made him stop the clock at 10.71, touching the 10.70 that represent their best brand.
Pryce is small, but bully. It barely lifts a meter and a half from the ground (1.52), but at times it moves the feet as if it were cartoons, at a devilish speed. He drew attention in the Khalifa stadium for his hair, a multicolored wig, red, yellow, blue ... He always surprises with his image: a crown, braids ... He soon took the lead, just in the acceleration phase , and already took an advantage that served to fly. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won with the same record as in 2013, which is the sixth best mark in history. After the celebration, of the jumps and the congratulations of the companions, of the photo with the flag of Jamaica, he went to look for his little one, also protagonist in the night of yesterday. In women, the Caribbean island continues to command, not as in men, because after the farewell of Bolt the United States has returned to occupy the throne. Behind Pryce were Asher-Smith, double European champion, who broke the national record with 10.83 and achieved silver, and Ta Lou, second two years ago and who this time had to settle for bronze.
The test had started with bad news, because the Dutch Dafne Schippers could not participate because of a problem in the adductors. But the performance of the little Jamaican gave it shine. He has already reconquered the World title. Now he has to be Olympic champion again: he was in 2008 and 2012, but he succumbed in 2016 to his compatriot Thompson, who yesterday was fourth.
