No one can beat Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce on the track right now.

The Jamaican sensation continued her sterling summer with a first-place finish in the 200M at the Zurich Diamond League meet on Thursday.

Fraser-Pryce, who swept the 100M and 200M at the World Championships this year, finished Thursday’s 200M in 22.40, ahead of Cote d’Ivoire’s Murielle Ahoure, who finished in 22.66 seconds.

They were followed by Ukraine’s Mariya Ryemyen, who posted a time of 22.67 seconds.

Fraser-Pryce also still has the world’s fastest 200M time this year — a 22.13 she posted in Kingston in June.
