It’s a wish brought real to stand here at 32 and hold my child, “said Fraser-Pryce, according to IAAF. “Last night I didn’t relax. I was in a big championship last time in 2016 and I couldn’t relax with anxiety. But you’ll get what you want with emotional toughness. I can’t trust that. I’ve been working so difficult to get home. The arena was so powerful that I had to arrive here well and I’m so happy to be victorious.

There are so many things I would love to say but simply put no one, absolutely no one gets to write your story but you! It’s done over time, at your own pace and sometimes with disappointments but it’s the ending that matters. We are all created equals but we are unique, with our own talents and abilities and we are meant to shine differently but we are the same. We are as people special women and men who are built to overcome and built for greatness, if we persevere. Two years ago giving birth to Zyon changed me. Two years ago I lost a loved one and two years ago I was broken. But yet I RISE... I am so grateful for the outpouring of love from my friends, family, fellow athletes, supporters and sponsors over the years. Your belief and encouragement gave me strength. But I am even more grateful for those girls who will come after me or the women who are still holding their own and working on their greatness in their own way and never trying to be anyone but themselves! I am humbled to be filling my shoes with my potential, fill yours and never stop for anyone and do it with all your heart and all your courage, and do it well🙏.
