According to Shericka, she will be trying to stay as “focus” as possible heading into the 2023 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Based on the results of the trials, the JAAA will select a team for the 2023 Budapest World Athletics Championships.

This year will mark the 19th edition of the World Athletics Championships which will be held from August 19 to 27.
