Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce with Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shericka Jackson of Jamaica at the Tokyo Olympics

KINGSTON (August 2) – Reigning world champions Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson lead a formidable Jamaican team at this month’s World Athletics Championships in Budapest.

Fraser-Pryce, seeking a sixth 100m world title, and Jackson, the defending 200m champion, head a strong contingent that includes Olympic quintuple champion Elaine Thompson-Herah and world 110m hurdles leader Rasheed Broadbell.

Jackson, the world 100m leader this season with 10.65sec, will bid for a 100-200m sprint double at the August 19-27 championships.

Thompson-Herah, a five-time Olympic gold medallist, is part of Jamaica’s 4x100m relay pool, while triple jumpers Shanieka Ricketts and Jaodan Hibbert also feature.

Hungary’s capital hosts the biennial championships for the first time, with the nine-day competition the third-biggest event in global sports behind the Olympics and football’s World Cup. Click here for the the updated World Athletics Championships Timetable and Event Schedule.
