With just over two weeks until Stockholm Bauhaus Athletics, it was announced that the fastest woman in the worlds this year will head to the Swedish capital for the IAAF Diamond League meeting on 30 July.
World and Olympic 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has recorded three of the five fastest times in the world over the distance this year, setting a world-leading time on each occasion.
She won at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Eugene in 10.81, then improved to 10.79 to win the Jamaican title before clocking 10.74 to win at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Paris earlier this month.
Irina Privalova’s stadium and meeting record of 10.90 could be in real danger when Fraser-Pryce goes to her blocks on 30 July.
“Shelly-Ann leads the Diamond Race and I’m sure she’ll relish the chance to extend that lead with a victory at Stockholm Bauhaus Athletics,” said meeting director Anders Tallgren. “The stadium record of 10.90 from 1994 is attainable and if she gets it she will receive a diamond.”
