Tokyo 2020 - Shericka Jackson: 'Careless' Jamaica star fails to make 200m semis after slowing down in final 50m
Shericka Jackson, who won bronze in the 100m on Saturday, is out of the 200m after a very casual heat which saw her slip out of the top three. The Jamaican's time of 23.26 was not enough in the end to reach the semis. You want it? We have it. Stream every Olympic event live on discovery+.
‘She looks unconcerned but…’ - 100m bronze medallist Jackson out of 200m after big error
Did Thompson-Herah miss chance of 200m WR by slowing down?
Great Britain's Beth Dobbin qualified for the semi-finals in second place in heat 6, producing her season best result of 22.78 seconds.
In heat 2 of the 200m, Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce was in total control throughout as she comfortably took first (22.22) with Netherlands’ Dafne Schippers scraping third (23.13) ahead of Germany’s Lisa Marie Kwayie by 0.01 seconds (23.14).
Namibia's Christine Mboma and Niger's Aminatou Seyni both qualified for the women’s 200m semis.
Mboma topped heat 4 in 22.11 seconds. Seyni came third in the same heat in 22.72 seconds. The pair were not allowed to compete in 400m due to their natural testosterone levels.
Mboma, 18, is the world junior record holder for 400m and the fastest in the world this year.
