Unlike the top two male sprinters at the Beijing World Championship Justin Gatlin and Usain Bolt who choose not to go head to head at the series ending AG Insurance Van Damme Brussels, Belgium Diamond League, fans need not to be dismayed, because the women’s 200m will be a thriller, not just two, but three the hard way, or rather the fast way.

Entering her first and the 15th IAAF World Athletics Championships in Beijing, China, few gave credence to the fact that one Shericka Jackson had the goods in her locker to match up with the world's best, at her international championship debut.

But lest we forget, Jackson herself made it clear what her intentions were for the 2015 season when she spoke to Yardie Sports in back April 2015.
