Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce raring for another show-stopping at Kip Keino Classic

World 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is raring for another show-stopping performance as she lands in Nairobi ahead of Saturday’s Kip Keino Classic, Continental Tour Gold.

The triple Olympic champion clocked a world lead of 10.67 on her way to victory at the third edition of Kip Keino Classic at the Kasarani Stadium last year.

“What keeps me going is that I believe that I can still run faster than I did last year or the year before. I am working hard towards that. Running faster is not something you talk about, it is something you work towards. It’s execution and showing up in the right frame of mind. That’s my goal all the time. Last year was fantastic, so the key is just to build on that experience,” Fraser-Pryce said.

Fraser-Pryce, also known as “Pocket Rocket” or “Mommy Rocket,”said that the scenario could be different this year, having not competed since September last year in Zurich.

“I don’t know where I am as opposed to last year when I had at least run one race in 200m in Kingston, Jamaica. But to be honest, I am feeling 21, which is good since no two years are the same so you continue to work and trust that whatever things you correct in training, things that you are working on you will execute them well on the race day.”
