Sha’Carri Richardson Steals 100m Gold with a Surprise Win at the World Athletics Championships

In one of the most anticipated races of the athletic season, American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson secured her first 100m title at the World Athletics Championships, with Shericka Jackson and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce finishing second and third, respectively.

On Sunday, Richardson clocked in the fastest time in the women’s 100m World Championships. All eyes were on the American, Jackson, and Fraser-Pryce for today’s meet, as they were all favourites to win the event.

Jamaican compatriots Jackson and Fraser-Pryce who was vying for her sixth title in the event, rocketed out of their lanes ahead of Richardson, with Jackson, in lane four, outpacing Fraser-Pryce in lane five.

But Richardson would foil them both seemingly appearing out of nowhere in lane 9 in the last stretch of the race, to win her first championship title in 10.65 seconds.

Jackson secured second place with 10.72 seconds, with the defending champion Fraser-Pryce finishing third with 10.77 seconds.
