The 2007 World Champion was Jamaican Veronica Campbell-Brown but she finished only fourth at the Jamaican Olympic Trials and was left off the team. It was not as if Jamaica needed her! In fact, despite her absence Jamaica’s female sprinters swept the medals, led by the almost unknown Shelly-Ann Fraser, followed by a dead-heat for second between Kerron Stewart and Sherone Simpson. It was only the fifth medal sweep by a nation in women’s athletics at the Olympics and the first time this had ever happened in the 100. On paper the event was expected to be between the Jamaican and US sprinters, and the two nations sent all six of their athletes to the final, joined by Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie (BAH) and Jeanette Kwakye (GBR). In the final, Americans Torri Edwards and Muna Lee froze at the start, thinking there was a false start. But there was no recall and they were hopelessly behind. Edwards would finish last while Lee pulled herself up to fifth. The best starters were Simpson and Fraser and they were clear early, Simpson leading slightly. But Fraser had the best finish, pulling away to an easy victory. The photo could not separate Stewart and Simpson who were both given silver medals, with American Lauryn Williams in fourth.
