Sha’Carri Richardson Makes a Run for Paris Olympics

Sha'Carri Richardson runs unleashed towards the Paris Games

Sha’Carri Richardson left nothing in the heat of the USA Trials in Eugene, Oregon. The 100-meter world champion ran a 10.88, just five hundredths off her personal best mark of the season, despite dealing with an untied shoelace from the start. On Saturday night, the final will be held, which should send her to her first Olympic Games.

Richardson, 24, has already qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, but a positive test for cannabis in 2021 due to a personal setback following the death of her biological mother prevented her from achieving her dream. She served a three-month suspension just in time for the Games.

In the afternoon heat at Hayward Field, Richardson shone, saying, “It wasn’t the best start, but I was cool and managed to run fast.” She was the star of the show, which only included the men’s 10,000 meters, won by national record holder Grant Fisher in 27:49.47.

Meanwhile, 16-year-old Quincy Wilson surprised everyone by running the 400 meters in the heats in 44.66, an under-18 world record. This is faster than Kirani James, who ran the same event at the same age in 45.24.
