Sha’Carri Richardson returned to the track this weekend and ran the 100 meter dash for the first time in over a month since her suspension. Richardson finished in 9th place in the 100 meters and withdrew from the 200 meters at the Prefontaine Classic on Saturday in Eugene, Oregon. She finished with a time of 11.14 seconds which was well behind Olympic gold medalist Elaine Thompson-Herah, from Jamaica who finished with a time of 10.54 seconds.
In her Post race interview Richardson said, “It was a great return back to the sport, I wanted to be able to come and perform having a month off. … Not upset at myself at all. This is one race. I’m not done. You know what I’m capable of.” Richardson said she is confident in running ability and that this isn’t the last people will see from her.
