How to Watch the Women’s 100 Meter Dash at 2022 World Track & Field Championships
Finals and semifinals for the women’s 100-meter dash will take place on Monday, July 17, at the 2022 World Athletics Championships, which are being held at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.

Fraser-Pryce Caps Memorable Diamond League Season With 100m Crown
On Thursday, American Trayvon Bromell won the men’s race and Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won the women’s race.
In the 100 metres at the Diamond League final in Zurich, Switzerland, for her sixth victory in the season-ending event.
In front of a crowd of over 25,000 at the Letzigrund Stadium, Fraser-Pryce finished first in a timing of 10.65 seconds, avenging a rare loss to fellow Jamaican Shericka Jackson in Brussels last week.
“I’m just happy to have won, really. The ability to compete has me feeling strong. This was incredible, and I’m really pleased with a 10.65 final score.
I began with a 10.6 and ended with a 10.6, so there’s really nothing more I could have hoped for.”
Bromell won the men’s race with a time of 9.94 seconds, ahead of Yohan Blake (10.05) of Jamaica and Aaron Brown (3.0) of Canada.
Bromell, who just won his first Diamond prize in the 100m race, remarked, “This was very significant to me.”
“We’re talking about a major contest here. The new year has me beaming, and I’m leaving on a high note.”
As a common phrase, “the fastest man or woman in the world” is commonly applied to the current 100-meter Olympic or world champion.
Current world champions are Fred Kerley and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, while the men’s and women’s Olympic champions are Marcell Jacobs and Elaine Thompson-Herah, respectively.
