Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce scorched the track at her son’s sports day

“Mummy-Rocket” and Jamaican Olympian,  Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce could not accept defeat at her son’s sports day.

Fraser-Pryce took to Facebook to share the friendly news of both her son and husband being defeated in track events at a sports day.

The international sprinter wrote that while Sue was advised by her coach not to race; she could not stand by and watch her family continue to lose

Her son, Zyon, placed 3rd after his second attempt and her husband Jason Pryce didn’t clock in.

Fraser-Pryce said she did what any professional athlete would do.

Race for herself and take home the gold.

“Last Friday was Sports Day at Zyon’s school!! I feel like I’ve been waiting all my life for this moment 😂⁠ I initially had no intention of running in the parent race — even my coach advised me not to run but my teammates weren’t doing so hot.

Zyon ran his first race and fell. He tried again and got bronze in the obstacle race. So, I sent Jason to handle business and bring home the gold in the male-parent race, but that didn’t go so well either 🥴

And as an Olympian, it just didn’t make sense for us to leave without bringing home a single piece of gold 🥇 so I decided to race.

We ended up getting two bronze medals, overall 4th place, a participation medal and a first place medal in the women’s parent race to redeem the Pryce family name🤣

All in all I’m SO proud of my son and happy he enjoyed sports day.”
