Fans in love as video of Olympic sprint legend joining in parents' race at her boy's school sports day emerges | The Sun

AN OLYMPIC sprint legend had fans in awe as she joined in the parents' race at her son's school sports day.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is used to taking on the world's fastest women in some of the best athletics stadiums in the world.

The 36-year-old won 100m gold at Beijing 2008 and London 2012 as well as 4x100m gold at Tokyo 2020 – as well as a further four silvers and a bronze in the last three Games.

But she swapped all of that Olympic legacy for the dusty track at sports day for her and husband Jason Pryce's five-year-old son Zyon, born in August 2017.

The Jamaican star brutally left her fellow mums in her wake with a no-holding-back dash.

Fraser-Pryce burst away from the line as the other four desperately tried to stay within reach.

But they had absolutely no chance against the third-fastest woman EVER – whose personal best across 100m is a staggering 10.60 seconds.

The sprinter, decked out in a blue t-shirt and a backwards cap to keep her amazing dyed hair under control, blitzed along the straight-line track to wild cheers from the watching crowd while her rival parents battled it out for second place.

Fraser-Pryce even took to Facebook to celebrate maybe the easiest victory of her stellar career.

She wrote: "Every point counts," followed by a series of emojis.

And fans took to social media to laud the hero's brilliant efforts and amazing sportsmanship to get involved.

One said: "A queen and more."

Another wrote: "I wish elite track and field athletes vs regular people was a TV show."

A third commented: "This is bullying 😂😂😂 The parent who came second has a bragging right for life."

And a user joked: "You didn't have to do the parents like that."

But one grumpy fan asked: "Why did she do that?" and a couple of other grinches criticised her for getting involved.

Fraser-Pryce's win comes a month after Sir Mo Farah revealed the Olympic champion came second in a dads' race – to a bloke wearing jeans.

Farah was even wearing his spikes for the 100m dash and admitted: "I can't sprint."
