On Monday, American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson won the world title in Hungary, and is now claiming her status as a Paris 2024 medal contender.
At the 2023 World Athletics Championships, at the National Athletics Centre, in Budapest, the 23-year-old ran the 100 meters in her personal-best, 10.65 seconds.
Richardson won over sprinters Shericka Jackson and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who finished in second and third, respectively.
This defeat was also the first women’s 100-meter world championship accomplished by an American since 2017. That’s when Tori Bowie achieved the accomplishment.
Even prior to Richardson’s win on Monday, she was thought to be a favorite to snag an Olympic spot for Paris after she won the U.S. 100-meter title in July.
