Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won a record fifth world women’s 100m title in a Jamaican victory over the medals, while Dina Asher-Smith finished fourth.
At 35, Fraser-Pryce ran a championship record of 10.67 seconds, finishing ahead of Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Herah, who took silver and bronze, respectively.
She is the first to win five world titles in a single track event.
GB’s Asher-Smith equaled her British record of 10.83 in Eugene, Oregon.
“This performance is phenomenal for me and I’ve had fantastic championships,” said Asher-Smith, who won silver at the event at the 2019 Worth Athletics Championships in Doha. “I really couldn’t fault it but I’m so disappointed it didn’t get me on the podium. I was so close But these are just champions. I am angry.
“It has been an interesting season for me so far. I’ve been in physical shape for a while, but I’ve had some things in life that I’ll probably talk more about after the 200m. I had to make sure my mind was actually right in the race rather than with my family or here.
“We want to go faster to the Commonwealths and Europe throughout the summer. But I definitely came here to get on the podium.”
It’s the first time a nation has cleanly won the women’s 100-meter medals at a World Championships, and it comes a day after the United States completed a treble in the men’s 100-meter final.
The same Jamaican trio achieved the feat at last year’s Tokyo Olympics – Thompson-Herah won her second gold on that occasion – and the nation also did it at the 2008 Beijing Games.
Missing a place in the final, Asher-Smith’s British teammate Daryll Neita finished third in her semi-final in 10.97.
On Saturday, 26-year-old Asher-Smith had qualified for the semifinals with a 10.84, the second fastest time of her career, and finished second behind Jackson in her semifinal on Sunday with a 10.89.
She pulled lane eight for the final and after a good start it looked like she was the closest to threatening the Jamaicans’ podium dominance but was caught by Jackson and Thompson-Herah.
Fraser-Pryce ‘feels blessed’
Two-time Olympic champion Fraser-Pryce’s fifth world title comes 13 years after her first, which she won in Berlin in 2009.
She now has 10 world titles in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay. Three of them have come since the birth of their son in 2017.
“I feel blessed to have this talent and to continue doing it at 35, to have a baby, to still be alive and hopefully to inspire women to have their own journey,” said Fraser-Pryce.
“I can’t even imagine how many times I’ve had setbacks and bounced back and I’m back here.
“I keep reminding myself that sometimes it’s not because you don’t have the ability, it’s because it’s the right time. It was the right timing and I’m so, so grateful for the continued support.
“This is the third 1-2 I’ve been involved in and I’m so excited. I was able to walk away with the win.”
