Sha’Carri Richardson finished in 9th place (last) with a time of 11.14 seconds at yesterday’s “dream” race against Olympic champions.
Richardson, who was disqualified from the Tokyo Olympics, made her debut in the Prefontaine Classic at the University of Oregon where she was set to race in the women’s 100-meter dash. Alongside her would be the three Jamaican Olympians who took the gold, silver, and bronze medals in Tokyo.
She lost and …badly at that and the three Jamaican Olympians came in first, second, and third in a sweeping victory.

Elaine Thompson-Herah affirmed her status as the fastest woman on the planet Saturday at Hayward Field, the two-time Olympic 100-meter gold medalist blowing away a star-studded field in a wind-legal 10.54 seconds – second-fastest in history and within arm’s reach of the world record. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (10.73) and Shericka Jackson (10.76) duplicated their finishing order in Tokyo.
Social media fans weighed in on Sha’Carri’s crushing defeat after all her boasting and dismissiveness of other athletes and Nicki Minaj was no exception!
Nicki who is of Caribbean heritage – quickly took to Instagram to fire shots at Sha’Carri. She posted a picture of a broom.
In a post-race interview, she delivered a fiery message to all the people who doubted her.
“This is one race,” she said. “I’m not done. You know what I’m capable of. Count me out if you want to. Talk all the sh– you want. Because I’m here to stay. I’m not done. I’m the sixth fastest woman in this game ever. Can’t nobody ever take that from me.”
Here’s her interview:
