Heading into the weekend, all eyes were on Sha’Carri Richardson, Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson. Many fans were hoping to see how Richardson would fare against the three medalists after missing the Olympics earlier this month. With a ton of confidence, swagger and the sixth-fastest time in the women’s 100m ever, she took the track to show what she could do.
Fresh off of winning the gold at the Tokyo Olympics in the women’s 100m and 200m final, Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica won the race with a time of 10.52 seconds. If the time is confirmed, it will stand as the second-fastest time women’s 100m history. Following closely behind, Fraser-Pryce earned second with a time of 10.73 seconds. However, Richardson fell behind and finished in an uncharacteristic 9th place with a time of 11.14 seconds.
