EUGENE, Oregon (July 7) – Sha’Carri Richardson redeems herself and earns a spot at the upcoming World Athletics Championships as she triumphs in the 100-meter, clocking in at an impressive 10.82 seconds during the 2023 Toyota USATF Outdoor Championships on Friday night.

Following her disqualification from the Tokyo Olympics due to a positive cannabis test and her failure to qualify for last year’s world championships, Richardson overcame those obstacles and bolted to victory this time.

She edges out Brittany Brown, who posted a personal best of 10.90 seconds for second place, with Tamari Davis securing third place with a time of 10.99 seconds.

Sha’Carri Richardson: “I’m better.”

In her televised interview on CNBC, Richardson confidently expresses her mental, physical, and emotional readiness for the upcoming challenges. “I’m not back – I’m better,” she declares emphatically before storming off.

Despite failing to get off to the fast start that she had shown through the first two rounds of the competition earlier at the championships, Richardson kept her composure and gained momentum after the 70-meter mark and eventually took the lead before ripping the tape with a level of aggression.

On Thursday, Richardson set a new personal best and world-leading time of 10.71 seconds.

However, her fierce rival and world silver medalist, Shericka Jackson, delivered an exceptional performance of 10.65 seconds at the 2023 Jamaica Track and Field Championships to eclipse that time en route to also setting her own new personal best.

Cravont Charleston Takes Down Christian Coleman And Noah Lyles

Meanwhile, Cravont Charleston pulls off an unexpected victory in the men’s 100m on the second day at the 2023 Toyota USATF Outdoor Championships on Friday night. The Allen Johnson coach sprinter finished with a time of 9.95 seconds (0.1 m/s) after finishing very strong in the closing meters.

He fended off the challenge of the 2019 world champion Christian Coleman, who finished second with a time of 9.96secs  by a mere hundredth of a second, while two-time world 200m champion Noah Lyles, who only recently recovered from COVID-19, according to Reuters, finished third in a time of 10.00 seconds.

After his victory, Charleston expressed his gratitude and acknowledged the privilege of participating in the event, one year after falling short in the semi-finals on the same track at the trials last summer.
