GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago cemented her burgeoning sprinting reputation by winning the 100 meters at the Glasgow Grand Prix on Saturday.
The year’s fastest woman clocked 11.01 seconds on the Hampden Park track as she celebrated a ninth unbeaten final in 2014. The 24-year-old Ahye was 0.09 seconds ahead of Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who is stepping up her recovery from a left leg injury.
While the injury is restricting Fraser-Pryce to the relay race back here later this month at the Commonwealth Games, Ahye will return to Glasgow as a gold medal contender in the 100.
On being favorite, Ahye says “it’s kind of hard, it’s a lot of pressure on me but I’m getting used to it now.”
