Controversial American athlete Sha’Carri Richardson is sending early warning shots to the sprinting world today (May 5) after soundly beating Shericka Jackson in the women’s 100-metre final at the Wanda Diamond League.

Richardson, running out of lane six, stopped the clock at 10.76 seconds, ahead of Jamaica’s Jackson (10.86s) and Dina Asher-Smith of Great Britain (10.98s).

By virtue of her finish, the 23-year-old Richardson has run a world-leading effort, with the fastest time thus far into the athletic circuit.


She also erased the meet record previously set by late compatriot Tori Bowie who achieved the previous mark of 10.80s on May 6, 2016.
