Sha’Carri Richardson’s return to the race track didn’t end within the triumph that she hoped. Her comeback race against eight other world-class sprinters ended with a last-place finish. Richardson, who was disqualified from the Tokyo Olympics, made her debut within the Prefontaine Classic at the University of Oregon where she was set to race within the women’s 100-meter dash. Alongside would be the three Jamaican Olympians who took the gold, silver, and bronze medals in her absence. Richardson ended up finishing ninth with a time of 11.14 seconds. during a post-race interview, she delivered a fiery message to all or any of the people that doubted her.
“This is one race,” she said. “I’m not done. you recognize what I’m capable of. Count me out if you would like to. Talk all the sh– you would like. Because I’m here to remain. I’m not done. I’m the sixth fastest woman during this game ever. Can’t nobody ever take that from me?” Sha’carri Richardson after the race: “This is one race. I’m not done. Count me out if you would like to … Talk all the shit you would like to! you recognize what I can do!” Richardson was also scheduled to compete within the women’s 200 on Saturday afternoon but withdrew from that race.
