Fraser Pryce to run the 100m in Paris
Kingston (Jamaica): Two-time Olympic 100 metres champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will compete at the Paris Diamond League July 6.
Fraser-Pryce will race in the 100m for which she has a world leading 10.93 seconds this season.
She joins countryman Usain Bolt as headliners of the Stade de France meet.
Fraser-Pryce will line up against the impressive Murielle Ahoure of Ivory Coast who has been improving steadily since making the finals of the 100m and 200m at last summer`s London Olympics.
As the 2012 Diamond League winner, Fraser-Pryce qualifies for the event at the Moscow World Championship, which will be held shortly after the Paris meet.
