Shericka Jackson shares secret to maintaining great form in the Olympic season

Jamaican track star Shericka Jackson has shared the secret to maintaining her great form as she eyes the Olympic Games in Paris, France.

Two-time world 200m champion Shericka Jackson has shared the secret to her great form as she eyes a grand return to the Olympic Games in Paris, France.

Speaking on a video shared by her sponsor, Puma Running, the Olympic 100m silver medalist noted that consistency is what keeps her grounded.

“Consistency for me has played a great role in my life. For me, it’s more mental and physical and once I’m physically fit and mentally ready I think it plays such a great role to just stay consistent by working hard and staying grounded,” Jackson said.

Meanwhile, the Jamaican will hopefully enjoy her 2024 season just like she did in 2022 and 2023. In 2022, Jackson won her first-ever gold medal in an individual event at the World Championships in Eugene, Oregon. In the 100m, she bagged a silver medal, finishing second behind compatriot Shelly-Anne Fraser-Pryce.

At last year’s World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, she clocked the second-fastest time, behind Flo-Jo’s world record in the 200m to successfully defend her title. She then settled for silver in the 100m, behind American Sha’Carri Richardson.

She proceeded to win a double (100m and 200m) at the Prefontaine Classic, the Diamond League Meeting final held in Eugene, Oregon. Her eyes are now set on the Olympic Games where she intends to have a good run and don the Jamaican colors with pride.
