A new 100m champion will be crowned come tomorrow following the exit of Olympic Games 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce at the Kip Keino Classic.
Pryce confirmed on her social media pages that she had left Nairobi to seek urgent specialised treatment in Milan, Italy.
“I am deeply disappointed to share that I will not be competing at the Kip Keino Classic. I was truly looking forward to to kickoff my season at one the greatest athletic events in East Africa. I love coming to Nairobi and seeing the fans and people; there’s an unspoken energy you can’t find anywhere else,” said Fraser-Pryce in a statement.
“Kenya was the beginning of something great last year and I’m really disappointed in not being able to run here. I have always gotten so much love here and I know how much work went in to the preparations.”
Thank you all for your continued support. I wish all of those competing the best of luck. See everyone on the track soon.”
