Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won her second straight gold medal in the women's 100m dash Saturday, defending the title she won at the 2008 Olympics.
Fraser-Pryce got off to a strong start and was just able to hold off charging American Carmelita Jeter to win by 0.03 seconds. Her winning time of 10.75 seconds was aided by a strong start out of the blocks.
"I really don't know what happened," said Fraser-Pryce, according to AFP. "For me as a sprinter I thought first of course about getting out of the blocks."
The 32-year-old Jeter won her first career Olympic medal, taking the silver with a time of 10.78. Although some might be dissapointed to miss a gold medal by such a close margin, Jeter was happy to come away with silver.
"I am so blessed to be there," said Jeter. "It was a tough race. I gave it my all. I got a medal at the Olympics. It feels so good."
While you might think Fraser-Pryce had an experience advantage as the defending Olympic champion, she said she was nervous going into this race.
"It's completely different to Beijing because there I was inexperienced. I was young and I never believed I could win. This time I was a bit nervous but I believed in God and I trusted him to carry me through," Fraser-Pryce said.
