Fraser-Pryce rejects general doping suspicion

Two-time 100m Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica on Wednesday spoke out against the general suspicion of doping in the athletics.

"Track and field is an unfair sport, and sometimes you are judged on many things outside your performance," the 26-year-old Jamaican told The Gleaner daily.

"It's not like I am demanding respect, but everything that I have it's because I earned it, and persons on the sidelines will see that my performances speak for themselves. I don't have to say or do anything extra."

In the build-up to the athletic world championships, which begin on Saturday in Moscow, sprinters such as Tyson Gay of the United States and Jamaicans Asafa Powell and Veronica Campbell-Brown were caught for doping.

Fraser-Pryce won the 100m gold medal at the Beijing and London Olympics and would like to collect her second Worlds gold at the distance following the title in 2009.
