Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce fired a warning to her sprint rivals ahead of the world championships as Hellen Obiri set the fastest time of the year in the 5000 metres at the London Anniversary Games on Sunday.
Jamaica’s Fraser-Pryce got away quickly in the 100m final and never looked like being caught by home favourite Dina Asher-Smith, winning in a time of 10.78 seconds.
World 200m champion Dafne Schippers was disqualified after a false start at the Diamond League event.
“It’s a long season and I’ve been training and training,” said 32-year-old Fraser-Pryce, who won Olympic 100m gold in 2008 and repeated the feat on the same London track four years later.
“To come out here and run 10.78 is a fabulous time. I feel good. The aim is to make sure when I get to Doha (world championships) that I’m on point.”
No Americans were in the 100m field at the London Stadium because their world championship qualifiers are coming up this week.
Kenya’s Obiri, world champion in the women’s 5000m, posted a time of 14 minutes 20.36 seconds — the best of the year so far.
