Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games absentee – Sha’Carri Richardson has announced her readiness to compete as she lines up against the fastest women alive at the Prefontaine Classic Diamond League meeting in Eugene, Oregon.
The sensational American sprinter, Richardson [10.72] will come face-to-face with Elaine Thompson-Herah [10.61], Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce [10.63], Shericka Jackson [10.76], and Marie-Josee Ta-Lou [10.78].
Perhaps, the Prefontaine Classic Diamond League could serve as a second chance for the Texas born sprinter who missed the opportunity to represent the United State of America at the Tokyo Olympics after being suspended by the World Anti-Doping Agency for failing a drug test.
“I took a couple… You know, I took some time off to rest, and now it’s game time, b*itches,” Richardson openly waxed lyrical in a clip shared on Instagram with voiceover of Nicki Minaj accepting an award back in 2017.
Her absence saw the Jamaican trio take home the gold [Elaine Thompson-Herah], silver [Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce], and Shericka Jackson [bronze].
To remind her fans of the day she’ll be running in the upcoming Prefontaine Classic in her most recent clip, Richardson posted “August 21 and I’m not playing nice 👊🏾.”
Richardson is noted for her long nails and her colorful hair on the field.
