Sha’Carri Richardson Responds To Usain Bolt Telling Her To Speak Less And Train Harder

Sha'Carri Richardson and Usain Bolt

Coming on the heels of Usain Bolt’s advice to American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, telling her to “train harder and to be focused and not say too much,” Richardson has unofficially responded on social media.

Sharing an Instagram story comment of a fan posted by The Shade Room which read: “Everybody want to give advice in the media but none of them actually take the time to speak to her outside the media. So I feel her. Stop speaking on me when you don’t even speak to me.” she captioned “Good ‘humbling’ morning to y’all,” the left her own remarks: “I could not have said it better myself” and “Y’all haven’t even heard the half of me.”

Recall Richardson who recently emerged one of the sports favourites rising to fame when she won the 100 on the same track in Oregon at the U.S. Olympic trials in June was banned from competing at the Tokyo Olympics because of a failed drug test for cannabis.

The 21-year-old track & field star has not laid low and has continued to boast about her athletic ability but it hasn’t translated in her recent matches as she came in last place against Elaine Thompson-Herah and others at the Prefontaine Classic.

Last week, Usain Bolt gave Sha’Carri some advice via The New York Post, saying:

“I would tell Sha’Carri to train harder and to be focused and not say too much,” said Usain. “If you talk that big talk you have to back it up. So just train hard and focus on that and try to come back, do it, and then talk about it.”
