Sha’Carri Richardson is on the road to making the country believe in her again and it’s all because of one change she made in her personal life.
Over the Weekend, the American runner was trending after the athlete made an appearance at the Doha Diamond League where she ran the 100-meter race in 10.76 seconds making this her fastest time so far this year. The track star earned first place in this race which also makes this the biggest international win of her career.
This was a needed win for a young woman who had missed out on going to the Olympics after testing positive for marijuana and being overall belligerent to anybody who opposed her behavior.
“That’s why I was going through the things I was going through, the pain that I was feeling, that’s why all of these things were happening to me, and I know that now because I had to return back to my faith,” she said. “I feel so much better. That’s why y’all say I’m back — I’m not back. I’m better.”
In an interview with NBC Sports, Richardson explained that with this race, she’s “found my peace back on the track, and I’m not letting anything or anybody take that anymore.”
Things are looking up for Richardson after she was expected to make headlines at the Tokyo Summer Olympics two years ago after qualifying for the 100m.
Now, with this win, Richardson is, as she put it, “I’m not back. I’m better” and looking forward to competing more on the global stage.
We can only hope to see her compete in the upcoming 2024 Paris Olympics.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
