              Where did you get that nickname from? I've never heard it in Jamaica.

                NBC did an interview with Shelly Ann Frazier in which she mentioned "Medusa" being her nickname. She said why she got that nickname, but I don't remember.

                  Is that Joe Frazier's daughter? Might she hurdle next year against Nia Ali? 8-) 8-)

                    Toyracer my guess is that it was coined by Bearracoon and sanctioned by the board.

                      In a feature they did on SAFP that was shown during the Olympics, SAFP said that her current training mates called her that. I had never heard it before either, but it came from her own mouth.

                        I wasn't able to watch NBC (why bother, nothing was live anyway) so I missed that interview.

                        Odd nickname. S-AF-P is kinda cute, at least I think she is. Definitely not the kind of face I'd associate with turning someone into stone.

                        I'll continue to call her the Pocket Rocket.
