After being named the fastest woman in America, Sha’Carri Richardson’s return to the race track didn’t end well. After not being able to participate in the 2021 Olympics, her comeback race ended with a last-place finish at the Prefontaine Classic.

She debuted in the classic at the University of Oregon, where she raced in the women’s 100-meter dash. The three Jamaican women who swept the women’s 100 meters were Elaine Thompson-Herah in first, followed by Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson. Richardson finished ninth with a time of 11.14 seconds.

Even though she took a tough loss, she had plenty to say in a. post-race interview.

“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.”

She stated in a separate interview that, “This last month was a journey for me, but that’s no excuse, because at the end of the day I’m an athlete,” Richardson said. “Today was a day, but it’s not every day. It’s not the end of the world. And like I say, if you count me out, jokes on you.”

After Richardson won the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympics, Richardson was an instant sensation with her explosive speed and bright orange hair. The sprinter dropped out of the 200m event at the classic last Saturday.

A fan took to Twitter and wrote, “The obsession with trying to break Sha’Carri Richardson’s confidence is so strange.” The sprinter replied, “The love ya’ll show me, I’ll never let the hate overshadow that. Positivity is sooo much greater than negativity. That’s why God always wins and the devil fails.”

Although this was a major disappointment to fans, the track star leaves her critics in the dust as she prepares to make her comeback on the track.
