Indoors or outdoors, it doesn’t seem to matter to Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

The two-time Olympic Gold Medalist took home the gold in the women’s 60M race on Sunday at the World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland.

Fraser-Pryce, a four-time Olympic Medalist for Jamaica, finished in 6.98 seconds to best Cote d’Ivoire’s Murielle Ahoure, who finished second in the race for the second-straight World Indoor Championships.

Jamaica’s Veronica Campbell-Brown finished fifth in the 60M race in her return to action since she was cleared to compete following a positive drug test last year.

“God is good all the time! Thank you to all who continue to support me,” Fraser-Pryce wrote in a message on her Facebook page.

Earlier on Sunday, the Jamaican men’s team took home the bronze medal in the 4x400M relay.
