Jamaican Shericka Jackson is the winner of the Moment of the month Award presented by World Athletics.

Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson has won the Moment of the Month Award presented by World Athletics.

Her stunning 21.55-second performance to win the Jamaica trials women’s 200 meters was nominated by World Athletics as one of four Moments of June.

Shericka Jackson was up against some other world-class performances, two of them word-record marks by Sydney McLaughlin and Mondo Duplantis.

Sydney McLaughlin ran a world record of 51.41 to lower her own world 400-metre hurdles record, and Mondo Duplantis cleared a world record of 6.16 meters.

Devon Allen, who ran 12.84 in New York on June 12 to win the men’s 110-meter hurdles, was also in the running.

After the voting ended, however, it was Shericka Jackson – who at last month’s Jamaica trials destroyed a strong 200 meters field to become the fastest woman behind world record holder Florence Griffith Joyner (21.34) and Elaine Thompson-Herah (21.53) on the all-time world list – who came out on top.

“WINNER The votes are in! Thanks to her phenomenal 21.55 at the Jamaican Championships, @sherickajacko is the moment of the month,” World Athletics said in a tweet.
