Fraser-Pryce confirmed for Jamaica International Invitational

Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce

Anticipating medal winning performances at this summer’s Olympics in Brazil, Jamaica’s  World and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will be among star athletes performing at the popular Jamaica International Invitational IAAF World Challenge at Jamaica’s National Stadium on May 7th.

Other participating athletes include Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson and American sprinters Mike Rodgers and Candace McGrone.

Fraser-Pryce and Thompson, who created waves in both the 100m and 200m sprints last year, will add quality to the meet with their sparkling credentials.

Fraser-Pryce is the fourth-fastest female of all times and the Jamaican national record holder in the 100m at 10.70 seconds, and one of the best of all times with six individual gold medals in the Olympics and World Championships.

Other participating athletes include Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson and American sprinters Mike Rodgers and Candace McGrone.

Rodgers is no stranger to Jamaica, as the speedy American has competed here in the past and was a part of the American team that upset the Jamaicans in the men’s 4x100m at last year’s IAAF World Relay championships in the Bahamas.
