KINGSTON, Jamaica, May 20 — World champion Shericka Jackson is set to compete in the women’s 200-meter race at the JAAA All Comers Meet, taking place at the National Stadium today. This will mark Jackson’s season debut in the half-lap race, and fans are eager to see her performance on the track. Follow live results and updates

Throughout the season, Jackson, who clinched the 200m title in fine style at the 2022 World Championships last summer, has participated in several races, including four 400m, three 100m, and three 60m events. – Read more: Shericka Jackson runs world-leading 10.82 in 100m season opener

In a recent 100m race at the Diamond League meeting in Doha, though, she faced defeat at the hands of American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson. However, Jackson appeared unfazed by the loss.

At the JAAA All Comers Meet, Jackson aims to bounce back and secure a victory. She will face tough competition from athletes such as Stephenie-Ann McPherson and German sprinter Tatjana Pinto, who trains in Jamaica at the Elite Track Club, where Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce also hones her skills.

Pinto, under the guidance of coach Reynaldo Walcott, has been putting in the work and looks to make a strong impression in her first 200m race of the season.

In the men’s 200m event, spectators can expect a highly competitive field. One of the favorites for the title is Zharnel Hughes, the European Champion representing Great Britain. Jamaica’s own Rusheen McDonald, holder of the national 400m record and in fine form this season, along with emerging sprinter Sandrey Davison, will also showcase their talents in the race.

Meanwhile, Stacey-Ann Williams is gearing up for her much-anticipated clash with USA’s Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone in the 400m event at the Los Angeles Grand Grand. Today, Williams will continue her preparations by competing in the 400m race at the JAAA All Comers Meet, where she will face Tovea Jenkins.

Additionally, Briana Williams and Tia Clayton are set to compete in the women’s 100m, while Oblique Seville will headline the men’s 100m event.

As the JAAA All Comers Meet unfolds, fans and spectators should be prepared to be treated to some thrilling displays from some of the world’s finest athletes.
