Shericka Jackson is considered among the world’s elite track and field stars for a reason. 2023 has been a brilliant year for the 29-year-old Olympian and she’s keeping the hopes alive for the 2024 Paris Olympics as well. The three-time Diamond League gold medalist recently added yet another feather to her rather elaborate cap. The RJRGLEANER Sports Foundation’s Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year award ceremony has just concluded and Jackson narrowly beat her national colleague Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce to win the coveted honor.

In the recently held event at the Jamaican Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston, Shericka was the favorite for the Sportswoman of The Year award. Despite having to fight the illustrious legacy of national teammate and the reigning title holder Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Jackson’s performance in Budapest last year was the final determining factor. Shericka won the gold in the 200m event in the 2023 World Championships while securing two silvers in the 100m race and the 4x100m relay with her team.

Her stellar form from 2023 was paid its due credits earlier today when Shericka was handed the reward. Along with making a statement on the track, underscoring her focus on the upcoming Olympic Games, Jackson also took to social media to share her fabulous look for the evening with the caption “She’s royal“.

The color of her dress reflected her fiery mentality, as well as Jackson’s fixation on retaining her current form. She didn’t look a bit out of her comfort zone outside of the track as her destiny was already sealed thanks to the exploits at Eugene, Oregon last year. With her win, fans have come forward with words of vehement support to help their favorite star keep her head above the water.

One take at a time

Growing up, I didn’t really have an interest in Olympic sports, but it was always something intriguing. As I found the means and the opportunity to explore its world, I found sports like volleyball, and track & field to be something that had tons to offer instead of just scoring through kills and sprinting toward the finish line. Whether it is Nebraska Huskers dominating the court or Noah Lyles maintaining his winning spree on the tracks, these two sports never fail to serve adrenaline rush to their spectators.
