WCW: Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

by Duke Magazine

We celebrate the sportsmanship, dedication, and passion of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who will be retiring after the Paris 2024 Olympics. 

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, CD, OD, OJ, is a Jamaican track and field sprinter competing in the 60 metres, 100 metres, and 200 metres. She is widely regarded as one of the greatest sprinters of all time. 

Fraser-Pryce is a woman of outstanding achievements; she is the third-fastest woman in history, only after Florence Griffith-Joyner and Elaine Thompson-Herah. 

In 2014, Fraser-Pryce became the first woman to hold world titles at 60 m, 100 m, 200 m, and 4 × 100 m simultaneously. Fraser-Pryce won the 2023 Laureus World Sports Awards for Sportswoman of the Year.

Despite fulfilling the role of a mother, Fraser-Pryce has consistently defied all odds, dominating the tracks for an impressive 22 years. As she gracefully transitions into retirement, we at Duke rejoice in celebrating her unwavering tenacity, relentless hard work, and undying passion for the sport. With an astounding collection of over 30 medals to her credit, Fraser-Pryce truly stands as a beacon of inspiration and a true hero in the world of athletics. Her legacy will forever inspire generations to come, reminding us all of the extraordinary heights that can be reached through sheer determination and dedication. Cheers to Fraser-Pryce, a legend in every sense of the word!
