It has been said, “When you know your worth, you do not need others to confirm it”.
On July 8th 2023, upon winning her heat in the first round of the women’s 200 meters during the U.S. track and field championships in Eugene Oregon, Sha’Carri Richardson told reporters, “I’m not back. I’m better.”
Since 2021, Richardson has worked hard to redeem herself from a tainted reputation as a result of a failed drug test that led to her disqualification from the 100 meter race prior to the Tokyo Olympics. However, Richardson refused to let this experience lead to her demise or undermine her self-worth.
