MONACO---Jamaica s World and
Olympic champions Usain Bolt and
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce were named
World Athletes of the Year yesterday.
Bolt, who won the award for the fifth
time, and Fraser-Pryce, a first-time win-
ner, received their trophies at this
evening's IAAF World Athletics Gala
held at the Salle des Etoiles of the Sport-
ing Club d'Eté.
The awards were hosted by Interna-
tional Athletics Foundation (IAF) Hon-
orary President HSH Prince Albert II of
Monaco and IAF & IAAF President
Lamine Diack, who presented the tro-
phies to the Male and Female winners.
Both athletes will also receive a prize
They become the third set of athletes
from the same country to claim the
World Athlete of the Year title simul-
taneously, following Carl Lewis and Flo-
rence Griffth-Joyner in 1988 and Britons
Colin Jackson and Sally Gunnell in 1993.
Usain Bolt, 27, previously the World
Athlete of the Year in 2008, 2009, 2011
and 2012, successfully defended both
his 100m and 200m titles at the IAAF
World Championships in Moscow, win-
ning the latter final in a 2013 world-
leading time of 19.66.
He concluded his World Champi-
onships by anchoring a Jamaican quartet
to the gold medals in the 4x100m Relay.
Bolt won 10 out of his 11 100m races
(including heats), and was unbeaten in
his five races over 200m.
"This season will be the one to go for
the (200m) World record," announced
"I want to get ready to attack the
World record," he added, hinting that
below 19 seconds was the target.
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, 26, regained
her 100m title at the 2013 IAAF World
Championships, winning in 10.71 which
remained the fastest time of the year.
After having run the fastest time of the
year in the 200m, 22.13 at the Jamaican
championships in June, she went on to
win the gold medal over the longer dis-
tance in Moscow.
Like her compatriot Bolt, she also
anchored the Jamaican 4x100m team
to victory, a national record and the sec-
ond fastest time in history.
"I'm shocked and excited. It's some-
thing that has been a dream of mine,"
said a delighted Fraser-Pryce, who
becomes the second Jamaican woman
to win, after Merlene Ottey in 1990.
"Not all the time do things happen
that we want to happen, but this did,"
she added. (CMC)
