Thought Fraser-Pryce ran 11.44 last week at Queens/Grace Jackson

The indoor season isn't over yet. There are still a few European meets that she can still run in .

But if you think a 11.44 presages a WR in the 60 I think it is a triumph of hope over likelihood.

Looks like the 11.44 was mentioned to show that SAFP actually opened last week, rather than opening this weekend as the thread title says . From watching video of the 11.44 though, the race was in no way indicative of what she's capable of. She seemed to shut it down long before the finish line, and judging by her start she looked pretty good.

Fraser-Pryce's fan website posted that she's running indoors in Birmingham (UK) next weekend, but I don't know if that info has been confirmed or if it's correct.

Here is the race and she jogging most of it
She ran according to her coaches instruction. Come out hard and jog the rest of the race. She is training for the 60m now, not 100m

He looks heavy and sluggish but it's early season yet.
