Fraser-Pryce, Powell win nationals

Kingston – Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce ran a world leading time of 10.79 seconds and Asafa Powell equalled his season’s best at 9.84 seconds to win the 100 metre titles at the Jamaica national trials on Friday.

Olympic and world champion Fraser-Pryce blew away a quality field including runner-up Natasha Morrison, who ran a personal best 11.03 seconds. Two-time Olympic champ Veronica Campbell-Brown was third in 11.06 seconds.

Powell lived up to expectations when he won his sixth national title and first since 2011 in a well-executed race by beating Nickel Ashmeade (9.91seconds) and Kemar Bailey-Cole who took third in 9.97 seconds.
