If young, talented, loud black women bother you, look away from track and field. Also, you are probably racist. Shakari Richardson feet I set the track on fire at the 2021 Olympic trials. Unfortunately for her, much of her career was fraught with setbacks after putting on her dynamic performance. On Friday, however, she returned to the top of the U.S. Championships in style.
don’t call it a comeback

Richardson returned to the national stage for the 2022 U.S. Championships, but was eliminated in the first round in the 100 meters. She had the chance to face the best in the world at the 2021 Prefontaine Classic, but she fell short. She finished last for Richardson and Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson Hera ran the second fastest women’s 100m ever, but she didn’t win. her defeat quietly.
A public failure of this nature is in itself unpleasant. Experiencing such suffering at the age of 22 while being used as an avatar of people’s social perspectives can make the experience toxic. The USA did well at the 2022 World Championships in Athletics without her, but if she were up against Thompson Hera, Sherri-Anne Fraser-Pryce and Sherika Jackson, this tournament would be a good one for the team. It would have been much better.
