    ¶2015 WC w100: Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (Jam) 10.76
    #1
    Shelly starts as the favorite here, and is very capable of setting a CR and new PB if she executes well. However, Bowie, Gardner, Okagbare and her fellow teammates will be hot on her heels to cause an upset.


    Start-lists are up for the Heats.

    There is probably no other athlete that has been overshadowed by bolt than Shelly.
    If she wins this one hundred she will become the greatest female sprinter of all time.

    The greatest sprinter argument (for male or female) can't be decided without having some parameters. What are we looking at? Which event(s)? How much does times factor? How much does medals factor? Years of dominance?

    Prove her mettle in the 200m maybe? She is easily (to me) the best 100m sprinter of all time, add the 60m as well and even a greater argument can be made for her. Add the 200 though and whilst she ranks 'up there', there is more for her to prove.

    All in all though, I think if she goes sub-22 next year (which I think she does). No one can remotely doubt her.
