The women’s 100 meters will be one of the featured events at the 2022 Meeting Città di Padova and Ivory Coast African record holder Marie-Josee Ta Lou and American star sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson will headline the start list.
Ta Lou defeated Richardson when these two last met at the 2022 Memorial van Damme – Brussels Diamond League meeting on Friday (2) with the former running 10.78 and the latter getting home at 10.93 for third and fifth, respectively. Prior to her defeat in Brussels, Richardson ran 11.29 seconds in a strong headwind at the 2022 Spitzen Leichtathletik to beat Olympic sprint double champion Elaine Thompson-Herah.
The race, meanwhile, will also include USA’s Twanisha Terry and Gabby Thomas who are both capable of topping the field on their best day.
The women’s 100m hurdles will be led by American Tonea Marshall who comes in with a season’s best of 12.46 secs, but European champion, Poland’s Pia Skrzyszowska, who has a personal best of 12.51 will be tough to beat while USA’s Olympian Gabbi Cunningham also comes in as a possible title contender.
World silver medalist Trey Cunningham, who is coming off the back of second-place finishes in Monaco and Lausanne, will be aiming to go one better at the 2022 Meeting Città di Padova and the American will start as the pre-race favorite.
