Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce continued her fine late-season form with a comfortable 10.81-second 100m victory at the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial in Silesia, Poland, on Sunday at a World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting, according to Worldathletics.com.

It was a Polish all-comers’ record, breaking the 10.93 mark set by Ewa Kasprzyk in 1986.

“I took some time after Lausanne to get back into things, and I’m looking forward to the next one because I definitely think, technically, I was very good in that race,” said Fraser-Pryce, who clocked 10.60 in the Swiss Diamond League meeting 10 days ago.

“I was glad I was able to get the break,” she added. “I needed it to regroup and come again. I’m back in the groove now and hoping the next two races (Zurich on Sept. 9 and Bellinzona on Sept. 14) will be good.”

Asked if she thinks she can join her compatriot Elaine Thompson-Herah and go below 10.60 this season, Fraser-Pryce said: “That’s what I’m working towards. Let’s see if I get there.”

Worldathletics said the two-time Olympic 100m champion crossed the line well ahead of Switzerland’s Mujinga Kambundji (11.08) and Britain’s Daryll Neita (11.15).
