KINGSTON - Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man, and sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, were named Jamaica's Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year on Friday.

The 27-year-old Bolt, who won his second IAAF world championships sprint double title in Moscow in 2013, ended the championships by anchoring a Jamaican quartet to the gold in the men's 4x100m relay.

Bolt, who won ten 100m races and was unbeaten in his five races over 200m, was overjoyed with taking his third straight and fifth overall Jamaica Sportsman of the Year title.

"This year was a wonderful year," said Bolt. "It was hard, lots of ups and downs, but overall it was a great season.

"The energy I got last year is continuing to grow and it helped me to grow in so many ways," said Bolt, who won ahead of training partner and world championships 200m silver medalist Warren Weir.

Meanwhile, Fraser-Pryce, who had the best season of her career, won the sprint double in Moscow.

She won the 100m in a world-leading 10.71 and three days later topped the 200m field in 22.17.
