Fresh from her emphatic win at the World Championships in Beijing last week, Fraser-Pryce encountered little problems in reaching the line first in 10.93 seconds and taking the Diamond Race title on Thursday, reported CMC.
Nigerian Blessing Okagbare was second in 10.98 with American Tori Bowie clinching third place with 11.06 seconds.
“There is no more to ask for: I won the World Championships and the Diamond Race. I was eager to get back on track after Beijing,” Fraser-Pryce said.
