Sha’Carri Richardson crashed out of the US track and field championships held on Thursday during the opening night of the USATF Outdoor Championships at Hayward Field in Oregon.
The 22 year-old failed to proceed to the next round in in her signature event despite a few promising races heading into the national championships.
Richardson who holds a personal best of 10.72 seconds that she set in 2021 which made her become the sixth fastest woman of all time and the fourth fastest American woman in history, finished in a disappointing twenty third out of thirty one runners and refused to speak to media after the race.
The race was won by Tamari Davis with a time of 11.04 seconds.
She is also entered in the 200m at the meet, so her hopes of making the US team for the world championships next month are still alive albeit dimmer. She must finish in the top three to make the team for the sport’s biggest event outside of the Olympics.
