Sha'Carri returned, Shelly-Ann never left: Watch the women's 100 at track worlds.
HUNGARY'S CAPITAL, BUDAPEST (Associated Press) — Sha'Carri Richardson not only raised the bar for herself and the rest of the fast pack of 100-meter runners she's
going against in the coming year when she added her name to the long, famous line of American sprint winners earlier this summer.
I'm not coming back. She then proclaimed, "I'm better."
If she can beat out Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, the defending and five-time world champion,
and Shericka Jackson, the Jamaican's teammate, she has a good chance of winning gold at the world championships this week and again less than a year later at the Paris Olympics.
Jackson holds the best time in the world this year (10.65 seconds), but Richardson has beaten him in both of their head-to-head encounters so far in 2023.
Fraser-Pryce is aiming to tie the record of world titles held by pole vaulter Sergey Bubka.
Joining Richardson and Jackson as the only women to break 10.8 this year is Marie-Josée Ta Lou of the Ivory Coast.
Ali Landry moved on quickly after her brief marriage to Mario Lopez.
