Fraser-Pryce will be making her first appearance since last August when the star sprinter competed in two of the Velocity Fest meetings prior to the halt of sporting events in the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 34-year-old who is hoping to return to the top of the podium at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, later this season, having collected a bronze medal in the 100m at Rio 2016, will race from lane five in section two of the 200m on Saturday.

Fraser-Pryce, who now trains with the Elite Performance Group, is slated to battle against Barbados sprinter Sade Williams, who trains at the Jamaican’s former training base at the MVP Track Club.

Williams has been impressive in both Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) Olympic Trials meetings so far, having won the 200m in both appearances already and she is expected to test the fitness of Fraser-Pryce.
