Adjust font size:

Shelly-Ann Fraser led the other two Jamaicans to win all the women's 100 meters medals on Sunday evening at the Beijing Olympics.

Gold medalist Fraser clocked a personal best of 10.78 seconds before Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart finished, both in 10.98, and shared the silver.

The Jamaican squad totally smashed the American fleet joined by Lauryn Williams, Muna Lee and Torri Edwards, who were hot candidates for the title before the Games.

The Jamaican women replayed the legend created by their countryman Usain Bolt on Saturday night on the same track in the National Stadium. Bolt sliced the men's 100m world record by three hundredths of a second to a stunning 9.69 seconds.
