Fraser-Pryce, Parchment score wins in Poland

Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Hansle Parchment produced good wins at yesterday’s Silesia Memoriał Kamili Skolimowskiej in Chorzow, Poland, a World Athletics Continental Tour Gold track meet, as they prepared for this weekend’s Wanda Diamond League final.

Fraser-Pryce broke the meet record in the women’s 100m, running a sublime 10.81 seconds (0.4m/s) while Parchment recovered from a slow start to win the 110m hurdles.

After resting from competition for about 10 days since she ran her personal best 10.60 seconds in Lausanne, Switzerland, Fraser-Pryce showed there was no rust as she took control of the race early and sped away from the field, breaking the eight-year-old meet record 11.01 seconds set in 2013 by fellow Jamaican Carrie Russell.
