News Americas, Kingston, Jamaica, Thurs. July 28, 2021: To celebrate the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Airbnb has teamed up with Olympic athletes globally to share their favorite listings with guests who want to travel like a world-class competitor. These athletes are not only known for their undisputed physical prowess, but also for their passions outside of training and their desire to express who they are beyond the competition.
This summer, Jamaican gold medal winning Olympic athlete, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who will represent Jamaica in Tokyo in track and field, has shared a list of her most desired places to travel. This list includes listings in places like Israel, Mexico, Greece and Jamaica.
Fraser-Pryce is an Olympic champion and passionate mom who has been named the fastest living woman in the world. When she is not competing, she loves to spend time with her family and relax.
“I feel grateful to be able to travel the world and to train in different places that allow me to experience different cultures,” she said. “Since the training and competitions are so demanding I always look forward to having some time off to travel with my family. Therefore I created a wish list that combines different destinations that inspire me to come visit and relax.”
Here are some of Shelly-Ann’s favourite Airbnb listings. You can check out her full wishlist here and get inspired to put together your own bucket list.
