On Sunday, Sha’Carri Richardson suffered a shocking result in the women’s 100-meter dash at the Nike Prefontaine Classic. This was how she finished last, in ninth place. Elaine Thompson-Herah finished first and had the second-fastest finish time in women’s history. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson finished second and third, as these three ladies from Jamaica swept this event, just like they did in the Olympics.
This comes after Sha’Carri dominated in June but was suspended for a month after and missed the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. This was due to her smoking marijuana following the passing of her biological mother.
Sha’Carri was getting cooked heavily on social media after she lost the way she did, while others continued to uplift her and believe that she will bounce back in a major way in the future.
The US track & field superstar is embracing the hate, though, as evident on Sunday. On Twitter, Sha’Carri posted a GIF from the 2008 “Hancock” film, starring Will Smith. In this GIF, Will Smith embraces the noise, like his villain role, in the film.
“This is one race,” Richardson said in her interview, after her race. “I’m not done. You know what I’m capable of. Count me out if you want to. Talk all the s–t you want. Because I’m here to stay. I’m not done. I’m the sixth fastest woman in this game ever. Can’t nobody ever take that from me.”
This GIF was all that was posted by Sha’Carri, in that tweet. In another post, she replied to a fan who said she could beat Sha’Carri, in a race. She said that she’d triple the woman’s salary if that result ended up happening.
