DOHA (REUTERS) - Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce powered her way to 100 metres gold on Sunday (Sept 29) to become the first person to win four gold medals over the distance at the athletics world championships.

Fraser-Pryce, who only returned to the track in earnest last year after giving birth to a son, capped a dominating championship storming across the line in a season best time of 10.71 followed by Britain's Dina Asher-Smith in 10.83.

The Ivory Coast's Marie-Josee Ta Lou, world silver medallist at 100m and 200m in London two years ago, completed the podium grabbing bronze with a clocking of 10.90.
