This marks a continuation of Shericka Jackson’s absence from the track this season, following her earlier withdrawals from the Miramar Invitational two weeks ago and at least one local meet in Jamaica in March. Her withdrawal adds to the list of top-tier athletes stepping back from early competitions, leaving Sha’Carri Richardson, the 100m World Champion, as the prominent name still set to compete in Suzhou.
