Jamaica’s 2023 World Championships Medal Prediction

As one of the powerhouses in the world of track and field, Jamaica has consistently produced exceptional athletes. With the upcoming World Championships set to take place in Budapest, Hungary, the eyes of the world will be on their talented athletes as they strive for glory on the global stage.

This will be the country’s largest contingent ever at a World Championships, where 65 athletes will be representing the black, gold, and green flag in Budapest. Because of the record number, naturally, expectations are that the country will surpass the medal haul of the past two Championships.

However, some track and field analysts predict that this staging of the world games might be one of the lowest medal counts in recent times at the World Championships.

Notably, a Sunday Gleaner analysis predicts that Jamaica will only garner four gold medals, five silver medals, and one bronze medal. Shericka Jackson, the defending champion in the 200m event, is expected to win one of two gold medals, as she is considered one of the favourites.

It is also predicted that Jackson will cop an individual medal in the 100m event as well.

Another gold medal that’s predicted for the Jamaican contingent is through Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in her pet 100m event. The Women’s 4×100 relay team is predicted to win Jamaica’s final gold medal.

With this being his second appearance at a World Athletics Championship, Rasheed Broadbell is predicted to win the only gold for the men in the 110m hurdles.

As the youngest member of the Jamaican team, Jaydon Hibbert looks set for a medal in the men’s triple jump, at least a silver, with a world-leading 17.81 meters.

To close out the silver medal competition, the men’s 4×100, along with the men’s and women’s 4×400-meter relays, are expected to finish at least second.

The only bronze medal for Jamaica is forecasted to come in the 400m hurdles for the woman contested by Janievee Russell, Rushell Clayton, and Andrenette Knight.
