As tiny and small framed as she looked, Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce was thrilling to watch at the London Olympics. She defended her Beijing title in 100m by clocking a time of 10.75 sec and also won two silver medals in 200m and 4x100m relay.
Russian Mariya Savinova proved she is still a force to reckon with when it comes to middle distance running as she stormed down the home straight to grab the gold in 800m final
