With her triumph by a whole metre, the five-time 100-meter world champion made history by becoming the first woman to break 10.7 six times in a single season.

To keep up with Fraser-Pryce, her countrywoman Shericka Jackson ran a personal best of 10.71 and placed second; Ivory Coast’s Marie-Josée Ta Lou ran a new African record of 10.72 to take third.

It’s a big deal for me to be able to run 10.6 consistently,” Fraser-Pryce said.

I was blown away. It’s challenging to sustain such a high rate of speed. Even though I’m 35 years old, I still feel like I have a lot to offer, he said.

As a result of an unexpected complication with the delivery of her son Zyon in 2017, Fraser-Pryce had to have a caesarean section and was forced to take two years off from running.

While many thought the new mom would never compete at the same level again, she actually became better with each passing year and ended up winning a record-breaking fifth 100-meter event at the World Championships in July.

To finish the season strong, she said, “I look forward to performing my personal best.”

In 1988, Florence Griffith-Joyner ran the 100 metres in 10.49 seconds, which puts her ahead of Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica and Jennifer Fraser-Pryce of Canada.

Faith Kipyegon, a former Olympic and world champion in the 1500 metres, set a new national record, a meet record, and a personal best, however she fell just short of Ethiopian Genzebe Dibaba’s 2015 world record of 3 minutes, 50 seconds.

The 2019 season marked Kipyegon’s return to the sport following the birth of her first child. “I have been pursuing the time for quite some time but I am thrilled with the personal best,” she stated.

I was very frustrated to lose the world record in the final metres because I felt this was the perfect place to do it.
