Sha’Carri Richardson, Cravont Charleston win 100m national titles


Sha’Carri Richardson captured her first national title by posting a time of 10.82 seconds to win the 100-meter final at the U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Friday in Eugene, Ore.

The 23-year-old advanced to the World Athletics Championships next month in Budapest with the victory. She’ll be joined by Brittany Brown (10.90) and Tamari Davis (10.99), who finished second and third, respectively.

Richardson got her revenge after she failed to qualify for the finals in the 100 or 200 last year. She also missed the 2021 Tokyo Olympics after receiving a one-month suspension for testing positive for THC at the U.S. Olympic trials. The suspension, handed down by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, had to be served during the Olympics.

In a brief interview on the NBC Sports broadcast, Richardson said she felt ready “mentally, physically and emotionally.”

“And I’m here to say. I’m not back. I’m better,” she said before blowing a kiss to the camera and walking off.

On Thursday, Richardson ran a 10.71 in the first round of the 100m trials, the fastest time in the world this year. She followed that up Friday with a 10.75 in the semifinals to qualify for the finals.

Cravont Charleston upset former world champion Christian Coleman by one-hundredth of a second to win the national title in the men’s 100 meters.

Charleston posted a 9.95 to edge Coleman’s 9.96. Noah Lyles, one of the favorites for the event, took third at 10 seconds flat.

Charleston, 25, had never even made it past the semifinals at nationals before Friday, according to NBC Sports.

In other medal events on Friday:

–Anna Hall posted a final score of 6,677 points to earn gold in the women’s heptathlon final. Taliyah Brooks (6,319) and Chari Hawkins (6,053) took second and third.

–Harrison Williams (8,630 points) won gold in the men’s decathlon final, followed by Zach Ziemek (8,508) and Austin West (8,331) getting silver and bronze.

–Vashti Cunningham leapt 1.91 meters to win the women’s high jump final for the sixth consecutive time. Jenna Rogers and Rylee Anderson, both at 1.86 meters, were awarded silver and bronze, respectively, in a narrow finish.

–Donald Scott won gold in the men’s triple jump final with a top distance of 17.22 meters. Will Claye was second (16.98m) and Chris Benard was third (16.68m).
