Congratulations are in order for reigning two-time world 200m champion Shericka Jackson as she was awarded with an honorary Doctor of Law Honoris Causa by the University of Technology (UTECH) at their graduation ceremony on Saturday.
Jackson, the second-fastest woman of all time over 200m, won her second World 200m title in Budapest in August, breaking her own championship record of 21.45 when she sped to a winning time of 21.41. She capped her incredible season by winning the Diamond 100m and 200m crowns in Eugene, Oregon.
She also produced times of 21.48 at the Brussels Diamond League, 21.57 at the Diamond League Final, and 21.71 at the National Championships. Jackson also produced a personal best 10.65 to defend her Jamaican 100m title in July.
Jackson was recently announced by World Athletics as one of five nominees for the 2023 Women’s World Athlete of the Year award.
