Sha’Carri Richardson is back.
Richardson raced for the first time in 2022. She opened the season at the 2022 Duval County Challenge American Track League meeting at the Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida. She had a poor start in the women’s 100m and placed out of the podium standings, setting a time of 11.37 with a headwind of 1.5 m/s in the fourth.
Despite the shocking start, she would rebound nicely in the next race that saw her celebrate before she even crossed the finish line.
Richardson had already pulled out of three scheduled meets this season, including her much-anticipated showdown with Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce at the Kip Keino Classic.
Justin Gatlin, Richardson’s former training mate, recently claimed that Richardson has been clocking 10.3 seconds’ time in training. A win under her belt might be the confidence she needs to put her back on top.
She is scheduled to go versus Elaine Thompson-Herah in the 100m is a featured event at the Pre Classic in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday.
