Sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce recently stunned the world when she won gold in the 100-metre race in Doha, Qatar, and now she is adding author to her long list of accomplishments.  

The Olympian recently launched her children’s book, titled I AM A PROMISE. The illustrated storybook highlights the journey of Fraser-Pryce from childhood to winning her first Olympic gold medal when she was only 21 years old.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce celebrates while holding her two-year-old son, Zyon, after winning the 100-metre race in Doha, Qatar, recently.

‘Mommy Rocket’, as she is often called, visited the Penwood Basic School recently where each child received a copy of the book that had been signed by Fraser-Pryce.

The book is currently available for purchase at Sangster Book store. The track star also informed fans that all the proceeds from I AM A PROMISE will be donated to her charity, the Pocket Rocket Foundation.
