Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will be participating in her final Olympic Games in Paris this year. The Jamaican athlete has put forward incredible performances over the last four Olympic games spanning 16 years. With amazing records and top championship titles under her belt, she is one of the best sprinters to ever grace the racing track.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is yet to make her 2024 Olympic season debut as she skipped the indoor season and the early outdoor season. With the Jamaican Olympic trials scheduled for June, athletes chose to participate in subsidiary events to get a knack for the race atmosphere as well as get accustomed to the pressure that follows.

The Jamaican athlete recently took to Instagram Stories to share a video of her working out in the gym during the weekend. Fraser-Pryce was seen doing shoulder presses in the gym as she continued her preparation for her "last dance" before bidding adieu to the sport that she dominated for almost two decades.

" Weekend Vibes," she captioned the video.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce made a shocking announcement earlier this year in February that the Paris Olympics would be her final appearance as a professional athlete as she wishes to retire after that.

This announcement shocked waves in the track and field world. Fans wished her well and couldn't help but reminisce about her incredible career. In her final appearance, she would be competing against top athletes like Shericka Jackson, Sha'Carri Richardson and Gabby Thomas as probable competitors.

The former Olympics gold medalist spoke to about her decision to retire from track and field after a final appearance in Paris.

“My son needs me. “My husband and I have been together since before I won in 2008. He has sacrificed for me. We’re a partnership, a team. And it’s because of that support that I’m able to do the things that I have been doing for all these years. And I think I now owe it to them to do something else,” she said. ( as quoted by

Furthermore, after retirement, she wishes to build a legacy in social work and help underprivileged kids through a foundation that she set up in 2012 called the Pocket Rocket Foundation whose motto is "to enrich the lives of student-athletes by supporting their educational development and fostering sustainable community-building initiatives to enhance the lives of students and their families."
