Three records have been set within the last 34 days by one athlete.

Shawnti Jackson conquered that feat.

In January, Jackson ran the No. 1 time in high school history in the 300m with a 36.63 at the VA Showcase to break Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone's all-time mark. Last weekend, Jackson lowered her national record time in the 60m to a 7.16 at the Millrose Games.

In her 200m debut on Friday, Jackson found herself lined up ready to compete at USC Indoor Open at the University of South Carolina and faced collegiate and post-collegiate competitors. 

Jackson was able to go around the indoor oval in 22.91 seconds to win the title and shatter Allyson Felix's 23.14 sea level high school record from the USATF Indoor Championships 20 years ago. 

Jackson's performance comes six days after Mia Brahe-Pedersen of Lake Oswego (OR) set the true high school national record with a time of 22.89 seconds at the Don Kirby Invitational in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
