33-year-old Jamaican athlete Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is looking to continue her dominance in the 100m sprint at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Shelly-Ann who took 2 years away from athletics to have her son Zyon, only returned to the sport last and she returned with a bang.

In September 2019, she went on to win the 100m race in Doha becoming the oldest woman to win a world or Olympic 100m title.

Not only is she looking to bring home the Gold in the 100m sprint event at Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but she is looking to double up by also competing in the 200m race as well.

“I definitely believe it’s possible, considering the year I had and the room to improve,” the four-time 100m world champion went on to say.

“There are things that I do personally that I missed out on and have gone light on.

“That time out actually gave me the time to just mentally refocus on the goals that I want to achieve and I’m going to soldier on and I’m definitely looking forward to making it to my fourth Olympic Games.”

The Jamaican sprinter won gold at the 100m Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has been nominated for Sportswoman of the Year at the Laureus Awards which are to be held in Berlin on 17 February.
