While the 26 year old Fraser-Pryce had a great day, fellow sprinter Allyson Felix of USA had a terrible day on the field as she collapsed onto the track and was unable to finish the race.
The incident ruined Felix’s dream of setting a world championship gold tally record of nine gold medals.
Fraser-Pryce blasted out of the blocks, heard Olympic champion Allyson Felix scream and fall to the track behind her with a torn right hamstring, and held off Murielle Ahoure of Ivory Coast and Blessing Okagbare of Nigeria to take her second gold by winning the 200 metres.
The big clash between Fraser-Pryce and Felix never materialized. The American was slow out of the blocks and never made up ground before she started limping at high speed and falling to the track.
“I was definitely looking for the fact that she was behind me. I was a little nervous at the same time, because I know that she is a closer of course and she is very strong,” Fraser-Pryce said.
“I heard when she screamed out but I was really focused,” the Jamaican added. “I decided I was running that corner and I didn’t care who you were, if you were Usain Bolt behind me, I couldn’t care less. I was running like my life depended on it.”
As Fraser-Pryce celebrated another major win for Jamaica, Felix had her face contorted in pain. Minutes later, when the Jamaican started dancing to Bob Marley’s “One Love,” Felix was carried off the Luzhniki Stadium track in the arms of her brother Wes.
