Richardson wins 100m at World Championships… 10 seconds 65
Richardson won the women’s 100m gold at the World Championships for the first time in six years
Shercari Richardson (23, USA), who has been praised as the ‘second Griffith-Joyner’ and criticized as a ‘glamorous player’ at the same time, has finally won her first major gold medal.
Richardson won the women’s 100m final at the Budapest 2023 World Championships held at the National Stadium in Budapest,
Hungary on the 22nd (Korean time) with a new event record of 10 seconds 65.

Richardson, who had a slow start in the finals, arrived at the finish line first with his unique explosive speed.
Sherica Jackson (29) came in second with 10.72 seconds, and Shelley Anne Fraser-Pryce (36, Jamaica),
who previously held the record (10.67) and won the 100m world championship five times,
won the 100m world championship.
He finished third in 10.77 seconds.
Richardson, who had a surprised look on his face for a while,
soon jumped up and down the track like a child.
It has been six years since the recently passed away Tori Bowie (London 2017)
that an American athlete has won the women’s 100m world championship.
Richardson is a controversial sprinter.
There are fans who absolutely support him, but there are also many anti-fans.
Looking at Richardson’s skills and appearance,
he reminds me of the late Florence Griffith Jr. (USA)
who held the women’s 100m world record (10.49 seconds).
The British Guardian even pointed out Richardson as
‘the most attractive track and field athlete since Bolt’.
Women’s 100m at Tokyo Olympics
Richardson won the women’s 100m final at the Tokyo Olympics in June 2021 in the U.S. track and field team selection event in 10.86 seconds,
but a drug test detected marijuana ingredients, and eventually,
shortly before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics,
Richardson was disqualified for one month.
At the time, Richardson said, “She received the obituary of her mother (who lived apart)
ahead of the U.S. track and field event for the Tokyo Olympics.” I did,” he confessed.
Richardson has been separated from her mother since her childhood,
and has also suffered from her family strife.
Since high school, she has lived a life close to ‘independent’ and suffered from depression.
Her Richardson’s marijuana use has sparked social debate beyond her American track and field community.
Many, including sports stars, insisted that “marijuana had no effect on her performance” and that “Richardson should compete in Tokyo.”
However, there were also voices opposing Richardson’s participation in the Olympics.
U.S. President Joe Biden also commented negatively on Richardson’s selection for the national team,
saying, “The rules must apply the same to everyone,” and “Richardson went through difficult things and coped well (after being caught on a doping test), but rules are rules.” paid
After admitting to using marijuana, Richardson also announced that he would give up participating in the Tokyo Olympics, saying, “I know what I did.
I have no intention of avoiding responsibility.”
Even after that, American fans and athletics fans around the world continued to pay attention to Richardson.
However, Richardson was shocked by being eliminated from the preliminaries at the U.S. Eugene World Championships last year.
At the time, the American media reported Richardson’s elimination in the 100m qualifying round as “breaking news.”
Richardson bounced back this year and won his first world championship, setting a new event record.
In the final round, Richardson stood on the starting line in a more calm manner than usual.
His artificial fingernails were not sweet.
However, he rose to the top with a ‘brilliant run’.
Richardson, who often showed hostile feelings towards the media,
said in an interview with the Associated Press video service APTN even after winning the championship,
“I advise everyone not to give up, not to be fooled by the media,
and not to be swayed by other people’s evaluations.”
I have struggled with any adversity,
In response to the question about ‘Last year’s sluggish performance’,
he expressed his uncomfortable feeling, saying, “I do n’t think there is a need to bring up that story.”
I know how to tell them apart.
Blocking media access also helps me.”
Richardson changed the women’s sprint game, which was dominated by Jamaica.
“A lot of people put our players into competition,
but I was honored to play alongside Fraser-Price and Jackson.
I’m more than happy to win a game with them,” he said.
“My journey has just begun.”
He foretold another run.
Jackson, who took second place for the second time in a row in this event following last year’s Eugene World Championships, said, “I am happy to win a medal.
I missed the gold medal, but I am satisfied with my race today.”
“Congratulations to Richardson and Jackson.
It was a fantastic match,” said
Fraser-Price, who won his 15th individual World Championships medal (10 gold, 4 silver, 1 bronze).,
I accept the result.
Iam happy to receive a bronze medal today.
I felt once again that I can still do it.”
