Her World title in Oregon is already the fifth World Championships Gold Medal for Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce who is the undisputed sprint queen in this 21st Century. The organisers are delighted to welcome Fraser in Brussels again. In 2013 she set the still standing meeting record at 10”72, equalled by Elaine Thompson-Herah in 2016. However, at her last appearance in Brussels Fraser-Pryce was narrowly beaten by Dina Asher-Smth.
Long Jump with Noor Vidts
The organisers add the Women’s Long Jump to the program. It offers Noor Vidts (emphatically 5th in the WC Heptathlon) the opportunity to shine in front of her home crowd.
Fraser-Pryce and Vidts have been added to the exclusive club of World Class athletes who already confirmed their presence : World Champion and World Record breaker Mondo Duplantis, Heptathlon Gold Medalist Nafi Thiam, Yaroslava Mahuchikh (silver High Jump medalist) and Erriyon Knighton (bronze 200m medal winner and youngest WC medal winner ever).
