Posted by: Watch Athletics

Shericka Jackson completed the sprint double at the Jamaican championships as she charged to a 200m victory.

After taking a surprise victory in a stacked 100m field on Friday, the Olympic 4×100 meters gold medalist Jackson produced another outstanding performance on Sunday (26) by claiming the 200m title in a new World-leading and new personal best and the third fastest time history of 21.55 seconds. She missed the Jamaican record by Elaine Thompson-Herah by only two-hundredth of a second.

The double Olympic champion Thompson-Herah finished second with a new season’s best time of 22.05 a second, while 2013 world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who clocked the fastest qualifying time on Saturday, took third place with 22.14.
