4x world team member Jenna Burkert has officially accepted her bid to sit in Final X. She will be looking to make her 5th team and also look to claim her second world medal as she won bronze in Oslo.
She fell short of making the Olympic team falling to Helen Maroulis where she was able to send it to a 3rd match but was pinned very quick from a nasty Maroulis foot sweep. She has made teams in 2014, 2018, 2019, and 2012.
She will most likely face world champion Jacarra Winchester who she upset to make the team in 2021 so that will be another great best 2 of 3 series to watch should Winchester get to Final X.
As far as who would be favored in the matchup most would have said Winchester going into the trials for Tokyo and Oslo but after her performance recently it could very well go either way between the two and this will be one of the best series to watch on the women’s side should it go down.
