She will run the 100m at the Queens/Grace Jackson Invitational Meet at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.

She is expected to run the 100m.

Fraser plans to run her first indoor season this year. He first indoor meet has not been announced yet.

I wonder if she is going to really 'gun it' or make it a jog fest.

I might be hard to "gun it" since it is her first race of the season. i think she will run fast enough to win.

In 2012, Fraser didn't have the blazing starts she had in both 2008 and 2009. Her blazing starts will do her great indoors

Will they give updated results as they come in, or will we have to wait until tomorrow?

Below is the website for the meet. Don't expect real time results.

I usually wait until the evening sportscasts on TV(TVJ and CVM) to see the races.

Just saw both Fraser's and Carter's race on Jamaican TV.

Both got out to blistering starts and then, jogged the rest of the race

Both are preparing for the indoor season. It will be great.
