Fraser-Pryce was shown standing up against other parents in a 100-meter race, soon moving ahead of her competitors for victory by at least 10 seconds. In the video, she does not appear to be trying hard to win, but the other parents seem to.

After winning the competition, the mother said that motherhood doesn’t diminish the ability or gift that one has.

“If anything, it enhances who you are. So be strong and believe that you, too, can accomplish great things. Things change, but you definitely can get to the top.” Fraser-Pryce said.
