US sprinter, Sha’Carri Richardson, will not be competing in the 100 metre race at the World Athletics Championship in Eugene, Oregon.

This as the 22-year-old failed to qualify from the first round of the 100 metres at the US Trial this afternoon.

In an upset Tamari Davis won the heat in 11.04 seconds ahead of Jenna Prandini (11.18s) and Shania Collins (11.24s). Richardson was only able to clocked 11.31 seconds to finish fifth.

Her time meant she finished 23 out of 31 runners, failing to qualify for the semi-finals. Following the race, Richardson declined to speak to the media while making her way through the mixed zone.

Richardson will have a chance to compete in the women’s 200 metre.

The sprinter has courted controversy since she burst onto the international scene at the US Olympic Trials in 2021. She clocked her personal best of 10.72 seconds to make her the sixth fastest woman in history.

Though she has not matched those heights since, dealing with the death of her mother, a drug scandal and the break up with her long-time partner.

She appeared to be coming back into form finishing second to Elaine Thompson-Herah at the Prefontaine Classic. But now she’ll watch the likes of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce from the sidelines in Eugene.
