DOHA, Qatar, April 25 – The Doha Diamond League will feature an exciting women’s 100-meter race on Friday, May 5, headlined by Shericka Jackson, Dina Asher-Smith, and Sha’Carri Richardson. The Wanda Diamond League’s official website confirmed the three-star athletes’ participation, along with Abby Steiner and other prominent runners.

Jackson, who dominated the MVP Velocity Fest 13 event, is the current world leader in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.82 seconds. The Jamaican is expected to face a significant challenge from the other sprinters in the lineup, including Sha’Carri Richardson, who has a personal best of 10.72 seconds and recently clocked a remarkable 10.57 seconds in Florida.

“After starting my season with a few 400m races, I’m excited to drop down in distance to race over 100m in Doha,” said Jackson, the 2022 Wanda Diamond League, and world 200m champion.

“I know I’m in good shape after running my quickest 400m since 2019 this year, but now it’s time to sharpen up and run really fast.”
