Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce wins the women's 100m at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha.

World 100m champion Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and world indoor 60m champion Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast will lead the women’s 60m field at next month’s Muller Indoor Grand Prix Glasgow at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.

The meet will take place on Saturday, February 15.

Fraser-Pryce is a 10-time world champion and double Olympic champion Fraser-Pryce and has the joint fifth-quickest 60m time in history with 6.98.

Ahoure is the reigning world indoor champion and has produced a personal best of 6.97 (joint-fourth quickest ever) to win the title back in 2018.

Fraser-Pryce closed the 2019 season on a high. She returned to the track to win world gold in both the 100m and 4x100m in Doha following the birth of son Zyon in 2017. The Jamaican is now preparing for Tokyo 2020 and a fourth consecutive Games appearance.

Two other Jamaicans are also in the line-up. They are  Natalliah Whyte, a world 4x100m gold medallist having anchored the Jamaican team off in Doha, and Olympic and world relay medallist Christiania Williams.
