Fraser-Pryce approaching 22-second barrier, Campbell-Brown third

And, on the night in question, 7:15 to be exact, Fraser-Pryce, like in the 100m two nights before where she dropped a national record 10.70, was at her very best again, untested by Jamaica’s sprint queen Campbell-Brown. Both got out well, but Fraser-Pryce saw the straight first, and despite Campbell-Brown closing slightly in the latter stages, she was not going to catch the winner. Fraser-Pryce crossed the line in a personal best 22.10 seconds.
