Kingston - Jamaica's double World Championships sprint gold medalists Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce were on Monday named the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association's male and female athletes of 2013.

Bolt, who was absent due to sponsorship commitments off the island, and Fraser-Pryce, retained the titles they won last year.

Bolt won the 100-200m double at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow earlier this year, and led the 4x100m relay teams to victory as well.

Fraser-Pryce also won the double in the 100m and 200m.

Bolt and Fraser-Pryce were earlier this year named the IAAF male and female athletes of the year at a gala held in Monaco and are favourites to win the Jamaican Sports Man and Sports Woman of the year when the awards are handed out next year.
