Shericka Jackson anchored the Jamaican team to win the women’s 4x400m bronze medal but the team was later disqualified for position infringement at the 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar.
Update: Jamaica’s Women’s 4x400m Relay bronze re-instated after a protest. Jamaica got the boot after not lining up in the right order at the second exchange. Any advantage gained has been deemed irrelevant. The gap between them and fourth place finishers GB&NI was 0.65 seconds.
The team, Anastasia Le-Roy to Tiffany James to Stephenie Ann McPherson to Shericka Jackson clocked a season-best 3:22.37 behind winner Team USA with a world-leading time 3:18.92. Poland finished second in 3:21.89.
Justyna Swiety-Ersetic moves past Shericka Jackson with 50m to run to record a national record 3:21.89 and win their first women’s 4x400m relay medal.
Update: Team Jamaica DQ’d in Women’s 4x400m Relay
Jackson was tiring – she ran in Jamaica’s victorious 4x100m team yesterday and the individual 400m earlier this week, where she won bronze – but wasn’t being caught. She secures her third medal of the championships.
