Diamond League winner Shanieka Ricketts of Jamaica qualified for the women’s triple jump final without much fuss on day 7 of the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019.

Ricketts did not spend much time out on the runway to enjoy the air-conditioned stadium as she achieved the qualifying mark (14.30m) on her first attempt bounding out to 14.42m (+0.6 m/s).

“I was hoping to qualify on my first jump,” said Ricketts who finished eighth in London.

“Now I can go back home and get ready for the final on Saturday on fresh legs. Training has been going good; I cannot complain as I have been getting some big jumps in training.

The final is set for Saturday, October 5 at 12:35 pm Jamaica time.
