Multiple world and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce says she will happily embrace anything that the season will throw at her.

The Jamaican sprinter convincingly won the women's 100m win at the Lausanne Diamond League event in Switzerland on Friday.

Fraser-Pryce got off to her usual strong start and was never headed as European champion Dina Asher-Smith and African champion Marie-Josee Ta Lou trailed in her wake.

She stopped the clock at 10.74, bringing her tally of sub-10.8 performances to a record-tying 13.

Asher-Smith finished second in a season’s best of 10.91 with Ta Lou taking third in 10.93. In fourth, two-time world champion Dafne Schippers clocked a season’s best of 11.04.

Following an indifferent run at the Stanford Diamond League event in the USA over a week ago, Fraser-Pryce reflected on her win in Lausanne.

“I came to Lausanne in a very happy state of mind, despite a poor performance in Stanford,” said Fraser-Pryce.

“I am delighted with 10.74. Such ups and downs make sure that you do not take anything for granted and do not get complacent.

“It’s a long season this year, but I’m feeling great,” she added.

“Let’s see how the season progresses; I will happily embrace anything that the season will throw at me. I am going to enjoy it and do my best.”
