She’s back and better!
Coming on the heels of being banned from the 2021 Tokyo Olympic games after testing positive for cannabis, Team USA’s sprint sensation Sha’Carri Richardson, 21, come August 21 will represent the United States against Jamaica’s Olympic medalists Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, and Shericka Jackson.
The sprinter will compete against team Jamaica during the Women’s 100-meter sprint at the Prefontaine Classic.
A rep for Richardson told TMZ that the runner is preparing to dish it got on track after missing out on the Tokyo Olympics.
“Sha’Carri is focused on running a good race since she last competed at the US Olympic Trials,” they explained, adding … “She will be focused on executing her race to the best of her ability regardless of who is in the race.”
Richardson came to prominence in 2019 during her freshman year at Louisiana State University, where she broke the 100-meter record at the NCAA Outdoor National Championships. In 2016, she won the 100-meter title at the AAU Junior Olympics and scored the USA Track Field Championships title a year later.
