“If there are certain things that are not up to standard, then that’s the thing (not competing) we have to do because if we don’t run, they will start to do things,” said Fraser-Pryce.

“If it comes down to actually not competing to make sure that things are up to scratch when it comes to facilities and different things in Jamaica, then I would (not run).”

The Olympic champion also expressed her dissatisfaction with the lack of support from local officials during criticism of Jamaica’s anti-doping fiasco.

“You read articles and listen to persons make accusations and say all kinds of stuff about Jamaica and its athletes and there is no one there to get up, take a microphone and say, ‘What you are saying is a lie’,” she said.
