Despite disappointing outing in the women’s 100m at the Prefontaine Diamond League in Eugene, Oregon two weeks ago, American sprint fashionista – Sha’Carri Richardson has been offered another platform to prove herself as she comes face-to-face against 200m world champion, Dina Asher-Smith and Tokyo 2020 silver medalist – Christine Mboma at the Allianz Memorial Van Damme in Belgium today.
Although Olympic champion, Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce the penultimate Diamond League of 2021 still looks one worth bookmarking for having gotten the Namibian sensational sprinter and runner-up to Thompson-Herah [Mboma, 21.81] in Tokyo in the starting line-up.
Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi finished first and second at the 2021 World U-20 Championships in Kenya, Nairobi last weekend and look set to take down their older rivals in Brussels this evening.
Richardson won the 2021 US Olympic trials but had to miss the Tokyo Games after testing positive for cannabis.
The 21-year-old from America [Richardson] has a point to prove after finishing a distant last in the 100m at the Pre Classic last month in Eugene.
