GRAND BAHAMA, Bahamas —— Shericka Jackson posted 10.83 seconds (-0.1 m/s) to smash the women’s 100m championship record at the NACAC Senior Championships 2022 here at the Grand Bahama Sports Complex in Freeport, Grand Bahama, on Saturday.
The world silver medalist, who said after the race that her plan for the rest of the season is to continue running “fast 100m” races, was never tested on the night.
After getting off to a quick start, the Jamaican, who ran 10.98 secs in her semi-final heat, broke away from the pack early and pulled away. She shattered the previous championship record of 10.96 secs, set in 2018 by the USA’s Jenna Prandini.
American Celera Barnes clocked 11.10 seconds to take the silver medal, with the bronze medal going to Natasha Morrison of Jamaica, who ran 11.11.
