Jamaican ShellyAnn FraserPryce Wins Gold Medal in Womens 100

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica won her second consecutive 100-meter Olympic gold medal by winning the final in 10.75 seconds.

Veronica Campbell-Brown of Jamaica earned the bronze.For Fraser-Pryce, the win was a comeback of sorts. She was fourth in the world championships in 2011 but, the Olympic title is never one that sprinters want to give up easily. Gail Devers, who repeated in 1992 and 1996, and Wyomia Tyus, who won in 1964 and 1968,  are the only other woman to repeat as Olympic 100-meter champion.Source: WSJ read more
