Sprint stars Elaine Thompson and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and sprint hurdler Omar McLeod lead the Jamaican team for the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019, which will be held from 27 September until 6 October.
Fraser-Pryce, a two-time Olympic 100m champion, has collected seven world titles in her storied career, including three at 100m and one at 200m, and will be contesting both once again in an attempt to add to her nearly unparalleled resumé. Meanwhile, Thompson is the reigning Olympic champion in the 100m and 200m and both will arrive in Doha as the co-world leaders in the 100m at 10.73.
McLeod, the reigning world and Olympic champion, currently sits fourth on the 2019 world list at 13.07.
