Third time's a charm
Two-time reigning Olympic champion in the women's 100m, Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will be going for an unprecedented triple in Rio.
Another gold medal would see the 29-year-old surpass American duo Wyomia Tyus (1964-1968) and Gail Devers (1992-1996), the only other women to manage successive titles in the most prestigious of sprint events.
Also a triple world champion in the 100m (2009, 2013, 2015), the diminutive Fraser-Pryce (1.52m) grew up in a deprived area of Kingston; it was a difficult childhood which shaped her character, and gave her an iron will to succeed. "You have a talent," she was told by her mother Maxine, "go and use it". Mission accomplished.

New USA Gymnastics CEO Kerry Perry said the organization will no longer be affiliated with the Karolyi Ranch, a training center where Larry Nassar assaulted young gymnasts.
Larissa Boyce, who said she told a Michigan State coach about Larry Nassar's sexual abuse in 1997, said MSU president Lou Anna Simon told her that she was unavailable to attend Thursday's sentencing hearing.
In a letter to Michigan judge Rosemarie Aquilina, Larry Nassar expressed doubts he could face a week of comments from women he has admitted to abusing. "I have to say, this isn't worth the paper it's written on," Aquilina said about Nassar's letter.
USA Gymnastics says it will not seek payment from McKayla Maroney if the gold-medal winner speaks publicly against Larry Nassar. Maroney filed a lawsuit last month claiming that USA Gymnastics forced her to sign a confidentiality agreement in 2016.
Two-time national team captain Aly Raisman says she felt USA Gymnastics "threatened" her to be quiet when she first accused Larry Nassar of sexual abuse.
Prosecutors expect 98 women to speak or submit written statements during the sentencing hearing for former USA Gymnastics medical coordinator Larry Nassar.
