The 35-year-old broke Marian Jones’ meeting record of 10:72s in 1998 and has now clocked 10.67, 10.66 and 10.62 in the space of a week.
“I did what I needed to and we had fun and let the clock do the talking. To be able to run 10.60 consistently means a lot. It’s remarkable. It’s hard to keep up the speed at this high level,” said Fraser-Pryce.
“I’m in my late thirties and I feel I have more to give. I look forward to doing my personal best [10.60 run in August 2021] during the rest of the season.”
World champion, Noah Lyles of the United States improved on his own Meeting Record after clocking 19.46s (+0.8) to win the men’s 200m
It was a USA 1-2-3 finish as Erriyon Knighton ran 19.84s for second place ahead of Michael Norman who clocked 19.95s.
His time is the ninth fastest of all times.
