After sweeping the podium places in the women’s 100 meters on Sunday, Jamaica’s triple threat —Shericka Jackson, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Elaine Thompson-Herah will take a stab at creating another historic moment when they line up in the 200m final.
Jackson, the world leader in the event with 21.55 secs, cruised into the final on Tuesday as the fastest qualifier, after clocking 21.67 secs in the semi-finals. Jackson won silver in the 100m and set a personal best and she is expecting to run fast in the 200m final.
Fraser-Pryce was also in good form when winning her semi-final heat in 21.82 seconds to set a season-best to defeat American champion and the second-fastest woman in the world this year, Abby Steiner (22.15).
Thompson-Herah, in the meantime, qualified to the final on time after finishing third in her semi-final behind USA’s Tamara Clark (21.95) and defending world champion Dina Asher-Smith (21.96) in a tight finish.
The Jamaican Olympic champion has been dealing with injuries this season, but her 21.97 secs in the semi-final shows that she’s in good form, even without running at full pace.
The men’s 200m final is also on the schedule for Thursday night, and we are expecting a pulsating battle between Americans Noah Lyles and Erriyon Knighton.
Reigning world champion Lyles sailed into the final with a quick 19.62 seconds, while Knighton won his semi-finals with a time of 19.77 secs.
Olympic finalist Joseph Fahnbulleh of Liberia, Trinidad and Tobago’s Jareem Richards, surprised package Alexander Ogando from the Dominican Republic and South African Luxolo Adams will also be hoping to land a place on the podium.
Like the Jamaican women, USA will be aiming for another sweep on the men’s side after taking all the podium spots in the 100m. Lyles and Knighton will be joined by Olympic silver medalist Kenny Bednarek.
Live coverage will start at 8:05 pm ET with qualifications in the men’s Javelin Throw, with the heats of the women’s 800m, men’s 5000m, and semi-final of the men’s 800m taking place on the track. The men’s Triple Jump qualification round will also take place today.
