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

In a post-run press interview, Jackson expressed that it has been a good season for her as she has now managed to “master” her start, something she was not so good at in the past.

With Elaine Thompson-Herah finishing 5th this means that she is 6th in rank for Jamaica’s team going into the World Champs.
