Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was denied a sixth 100-metre title as she was beaten into third place in a star-studded final that was won by the American Sha’Carri Richardson in a stunning 10.65 seconds in a major upstaging of the Jamaicans.
Richardson also beat another Jamaican, Shericka Jackson, who finished second in a quick 10.72 seconds.
Fraser-Pryce clocked an impressive 10.77 to claim the bronze, a season’s best for the athlete.
Jamaica’s medal count at the end of day three of the championships now stands at three – two silver and a bronze.
Richardson’s win in a blinder running out of lane nine is the first of her relatively young career. Her time is the fastest ever in a World Championships final.
