At 35 years old and on a hot night (about 30 ° C), the eight-time Olympic medalist was the fastest in the straight line at Charlety Stadium. She signed up the same time as her in her year’s first 100m, in early May in Nairobi.
The competition was relatively far away: the British Daryll Neita was second with 10.99 and the Ivorian Marie-Josée Ta Lou, third with 11.01.
Fraser-Pryce, nine-time world champion, will be the favorite at the World Cup in Eugene (Oregon, United States, from July 15 to 24) along with her compatriot Eliane Thompson-Herah.
After this participation in the Paris meeting of the ‘Diamond League’, Fraser-Pryce will return to Jamaica for the national teams, where he plans to run in the 100 and 200 meters next week. In the 100 meters she already has the sure ticket for Eugene as current world champion in the distance.
