Despite not being a huge fan of running indoors, Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce raced her way into the history books at the 2014 IAAF World Indoor Championships on Sunday, winning the women’s 60 meters in a time of 6.98 seconds.
Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast took silver, finishing 0.03 seconds behind Fraser-Pryce. Tianna Bartoletta, the US champion at the distance, finished in third.
Fraser-Pryce is now only the second women in history to win world titles in the 60 meters, 100 meters, and 200 meters. However, despite the amazing accomplishment, the two-time Olympic gold medalist said the 60 meters isn’t really her favorite thing: “To be honest I don’t like it. There is so much that can go wrong in a 60. Not nailing the start….You have persons that don’t nail the start can win a 100…But in the 60 you have to get going.”
