KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuters) - Twice Olympic 100 meters champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will run in this year's Commonwealth Games, she said on Friday.

The Jamaican, who won gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at last year's world championships in Moscow, is undecided on which events she will contest in Glasgow.

The 2013 IAAF female athlete of the year has also set her sights on lowering her 60 meters personal best of 7.04 seconds at the Birmingham Indoor meet on Saturday in her build-up to next month's world indoor championships in Sopot, Poland.

The 27-year-old Fraser-Pryce told reporters during a teleconference that she also intends to represent Jamaica at the inaugural world relay championships in the Bahamas in May.
