America’s Fastest Women Olympic Dream Will Have To Wait

Well there has been an update to the Americas fastest woman and her chance to still be able to run in the upcoming olympic games. There was still a possibility for her to make the relay team  after her 30 days suspension was up.  The USATF had two discretionary picks beyond the top four finishers in the 100-meter final at trials to build the relay team but chose not to offer a spot to Richardson and stops any chance of her competing and getting a medal in what would be her first Olympic games.

In a statement from USA Track and Field said it was “incredibly sympathetic toward Sha’Carri Richardson’s extenuating circumstances” and “fully agrees” that international rules regarding marijuana should be reevaluated.

“So while our heartfelt understanding lies with Sha’Carri, we must also maintain fairness for all of the athletes who attempted to realize their dreams by securing a place on the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team,” 

I think this is going  to motivate her even more…shes only 21 they’ve got to deal with her in this sport for years to come.
