Dina Asher-Smith claims bronze as Shericka Jackson sported stunning skills

Asher-Smith claimed bronze in Eugene as Shericka Jackson sported mystifying skills in sprinting history.

Afterward, Asher-Smith disclosed that post the death of her grandmother Sislyn Asher 92-year-old, she fell and was exhausted.

Moreover, with the sequel of suspicions and grief, she found immense courage to win another major medal.

Jackson led the race with furious speed, crossed the fence in 21.45s, and claimed gold. This is the second fastest time in history, just behind Florence Griffiths, whose record is still in vogue.

Shelly-Ann-Fraser-Pryce snatched silver in 21.81s to claim the 21st global medal of her career.

However, Asher-Smith reached 22.02s and celebrated her achievement with her whole heart. She dedicated her win to her late grandmother.

Besides, she disclosed that Sislyn resembled her and how she sprinted was identical to her.

She asserted that we both look the same: same looks, same behavior, and interestingly, our birthdays were two days apart, and we always had a joint birthday.

In addition, she said that she had been giving me high hopes and motivation. I know she would want me to stand firm and make her proud.

Amid sprinting, Jackson proved herself the furious one and the fastest woman alive, over 200m. Post 100m, the top three were separated by only 0.5s, but Jackson ran the final round in 10.41s.

In a nutshell, Jackson has achieved 11 global medals at Olympic and World Championships across 100m, 200m, and 400m relays. However, Asher-Smith made a loud noise with her feat. She was incredibly happy.
