BEIJING (AP) - The fastest woman in the world is a Jamaican.
Shelly-Ann Fraser won the gold in the 100 meters and Sherone
Simpson and Kerron Stewart finished in a dead heat for the silver
to make it a Jamaican sweep.
The win follows Usain Bolt's world-record win the night before. That makes it two golds and two silvers for a country that had never won gold in an Olympic 100 meters before this year.
Jamaica's big win turned into a giant disappointment for the
United States. Lauryn Williams finished fourth, Muna Lee fifth and
Torri Edwards last. Lee said she thought there was a false start.
