Athletics: Fraser-Pryce makes history, Bolt equals record
MOSCOW (AFP) - Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Usain Bolt ensured they and Jamaica bowed out of the World Athletics Championships on a high on Sunday, powering their respective 4x100 metres relay teams to gold.
Both were landmark victories.
Fraser-Pryce became the first woman to win the treble of 100m, 200m and relay golds while Bolt's eighth world title took him level on the all-time list with three Americans - Michael Johnson, Carl Lewis and Allyson Felix.
Fraser-Pryce, who achieved what Silke Gladisch just failed to do in 1987 when East Germany won relay silver, and Katrin Krabbe in 1991, when the now unified German team won bronze in the relay, had the simplest of tasks.
