The Climb To The Top

 Sha’carri Richardson is one of the top-ranked fastest women in the world at just 21 years old. She graduated from Carter High School in Dallas, TX in 2018. She was the No. 1 ranked sprint recruit in the U.S. for her entire class, as well as competed for Team USA and the AAU Junior Olympics during her high school career. 

She signed with Lousiana State University where she emerged in the 2019 season as a superstar. She set the collegiate record in the 100 meter dash at the NCAA Championships, which was ninth fastest in world history, a U20 world record, No. 5 in U.S. history, and LSU school record.

Humility

As a professional runner, Sha’carri has become a role model for young girls that would like to follow in her footsteps. Not only as an athlete, but also as a woman who expresses herself. She is known for having colorful hair, long nails, and tattoos. “I want women to see they can be exactly who they are,” she says in response to her appearance.

This is an important message to display as a female athlete who has a following, as she can be a great influence on those who look up to her.

The Future Is Bright

 Sha’carri was the first freshman in SEC history to win the 100, 200 and run on an SEC winning 4×100 meter relay. Right now, she is a Junior and Collegiate World Record Holder for the 100 and 200 meter relays. After her freshman season at LSU, she decided to take her running career to the professional level. 

She currently trains with former sprinter Dennis Mitchell, and competes for the USA Track & Field Team in the 100 and 200 meter races. Her personal records for the events are 10.72 and 22.00 seconds. In 2o20 at the Miramar Invitational, she became the 6th fastest woman in 100 meter history. She still continues to dominate her races as a pro.
