Jamaica's Shericka Jackson won the 2022 NACAC women's 100m on Saturday night in Bahama's.
The 28-year-old Jackson, who won the 200m gold and 100m silver at last month's World championships in Oregon, dominated the women's 100m final. Jackson blasted out from the blocks and pulled away from the field, clocking 10.83 (-0.1 m/s) seconds to win her first NACAC title.
“I think I did pretty good. I just wanted to come out here and have some fun and did that. So, I’m grateful. My coach decided I’ve run a good amount of 200m this season, so it is time to focus on running some fast 100m (now),” Jackson said.
Her winning time smashed the previous championship record of 10.96 secs, set in 2018 by Jenna Prandini from the USA.
