Olympic and World 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica pulled out of a track meet for a second straight weekend, with organizers of Saturday’s Diamond League meet in Shanghai saying she has a “small toe injury.”

“She currently gets treatment and expects to be fit on a short notice,” a press release said.

Fraser-Pryce was a late scratch from last Saturday’s Jamaica Invitational in Kingston, with no widespread reports of the reason for that withdrawal.

Fraser-Pryce last raced at the Penn Relays on April 30.
