The headstrong American track and field sprinter, Sha’Carri Richardson, seems to be riding the waves of her most recent win in the Women’s 100m Final at the Spitzen Leichtathletik match last Tuesday. The runner is known for her outspoken internet scenes and her feuds when it comes to Jamaican athletes.
However, Richardson seems to have mellowed since her win against Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah by a small margin of 00.01 to take first place in the race. She can be seen giving an interview after the race took place looking exuberant and mild.
The video of the athlete was posted on the Twitter page of Jamaican radio royalty ZJ Sparks with the caption, “No man, mi sure granny ketch wi cousin and gi har 2 box ah dem Benjamin’s herbs deh cause issa different person dis.”
She spoke of her race and how she felt “blessed” for her victory, especially “after having the year that I’ve had.” When asked about her constant feud with “those Jamaicans”, Richardson said, “I love my Jamaicans, I love it, I love the culture, I love the people, and always give my respect.” She continued by stating that Jamaican athletes love a challenge, and so does she so they will always have her respect.
Richardson declared that she loves going to Devon House for their ice cream when asked about her favourite Jamaican food, and she dropped a few moves which was a rendition of her best Jamaican dance moves.
After witnessing her change of heart, someone voiced, “Nuh trust her…a ticking time bomb that one. She knows she’s got to fix her image or else. At this point, she just makes me laugh 😁,” while someone else commented, “Lol… growth is a beautiful ting.”
