MOSCOW — Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce became the first woman in world championships history to sweep the sprint events when she anchored Jamaica to gold in the 4x100-meter relay final Sunday.

Fraser-Pryce, the 100 and 200 champion, got the baton with a big lead already. But, with her pink hair extensions slapping the air behind her, she kept building on it to cross in a championship record of 41.29 seconds.

Later Sunday, Usain Bolt can get his second golden triple at the world championships and lead Jamaica to the first sweep of all sprint events – men and women – when he anchors the men's relay team.
