Some in the sports world have stated that Sha’Carri Richardson had been underperforming as of late. She was expected to win just about every race that she was slated to appear in before her marijuana suspension forced her to miss the Tokyo Olympics. But, after her last competition, those expectations may rise again.

According to Runner’s World, Richardson got off to an excellent start to the 2023 track and field season. She won her first race of the season when she clocked in with an official time of 10.57 seconds. With a legal-wind time of 10.77 seconds at the Miramar Invitational this past weekend.

With that calculation, without factoring in the wind component, it marked the third-fastest 100-meter race all-time, behind Elaine Thompson-Herah (10.54 seconds) in 1992 and Florence Griffith-Joyner (10.49) in ’59.

This was Richardson’s first solo competition for the season. Last weekend, she made her season debut when she participated in her first race of the season: the 4×100-meter relay at the Texas Relays. She helped her team finish in second place.

Last year, the ultra-competitive Richardson did not qualify for the finals of the 100 meters and 200 meters at the USATF Outdoor Championships. Because of those outcomes, she was eliminated from competing at the World Athletics Championships.

Things didn’t get off to a great start this year for the speedster as she was ejected from an American Airlines flight.  She was kicked off the plane in January after she got into an argument with a male flight attendant who she refers to as “John” in an Instagram video.
