We caught up with Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce at the 2013 Hot Trot Jerk 5K Run/Walk in South Florida. She was the Grand Marshall for the Run/Walk. Shelly’s infectious smile and warm personality drew people to her. She signed autographs and playfully interacted with everyone. Here is our conversation with Shelly-Ann.
Q. If you were not doing track & field what would you be doing?
(If I wasn’t doing track what else would I being doing…hmmmm) That is so hard because I have never ever seen my self doing something different. I like working with children and I am very passionate about that, I would be working with children right now. Trying to see how much I can empower them. (Big smile) I really don’t know what else I would be doing…(LOL)
Q. Movie you would watch over and over again? (A movie that stops you in your tracks)
That would defiantly be “Love and Basketball”. I am big fan of that show I have watched it like a million times and one (Smile).
Q: A follow-up questions. Since you are a basketball fan what is your favorite team?
Okay,..Alright…this weird but It is the truth, I really don’t have a team. There are individual players on different team that I think are really great…I look up to people like that…So for me…the Miami Heat I like Lebron of course…and Dwayne Wade. For Chicago Bulls, I like Derrick Rose. For the New York Knicks I like Carmelo Anthony. it’s different players and different teams that gravitate me to the sport.
