Sha’Carri Richardson of the USA will hope to continue her fruitful form this season when she lines up in the women’s 200 meters at the 2021 Ostrava Golden Spike meeting at Mestsky Stadion in the Czech city on Tuesday.

Richardson, the second quickest over the half-lap this season with a personal best time of 22.00 seconds, will race from lane five and will take on a solid field that could push her to run close to her best, despite the long journey to the Czech Republic.

“Even if I did have jetlag I wouldn’t use that as an excuse, I’m feeling good,” the 21-year-old said. “I fell in love with the 200 before the 100, I like to show people I can be a 200 runner as much as a 100 runner.”

“I’m always excited to run against the fastest girls in the world,” said Schippers. “It’s nice to see new talent and I’m really excited to race.”

Okagbare enters this meeting with a season-best of 22.66s, but she has a slightly wind-aided 22.03s in her last outing in Jacksonville, FL, on April 29, and will be confident about delivering the same kind of performance in Europe.
