A month after organizers announced that the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo would be postponed until the following summer due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce told British broadcaster Sky Sports that the 2021 games and next year’s world championships “could definitely” be the last major competitions of her career.

Fraser-Pryce burst on the scene at 21 years of age during the 2008 Games, shocking the track community by taking gold in the 100 meters, a title she defended in 2012. All told, Fraser-Pryce has won seven Olympic medals (three gold, four silver) and 11 world championships medals (nine gold, two silver), making her the most accomplished women’s sprinter in history. An accomplished resume worth riding off on into the sunset.

But after losing a year of competition with pandemic lockdowns, and posting some of the fastest times of her nearly two-decade career over the past few months, Fraser-Pryce, 34, says she’s holding off retirement until at least after the Paris Games in 2024.The diminutive sprinter, known as “Pocket Rocket” and “Mommy Rocket,” believes that she still has more left to give to the sport that has already given her so much.
