Shericka Jackson Sets Sights on Breaking FloJo’s 200m World Record in Brussels


Sep 7, 2023

Jamaican sprinter Shericka Jackson is preparing to challenge the women’s 200 meter world record at the Memorial Van Damme event on Friday. The 29-year-old expressed her determination to break the longstanding record, set by Florence Griffith Joyner in 1988, during a press conference in Brussels. Jackson recently secured her second consecutive world 200 title in Budapest, recording the second fastest time in history at 21.41 seconds. Breaking the world record would alleviate some pressure ahead of the Diamond League Final in Eugene, but Jackson remains confident that she will have another opportunity if she falls short. With favorable weather conditions and a new track, Jackson feels physically and mentally prepared to achieve her goal. The temperature is expected to peak at 31 Celsius in Brussels on Friday.
