Sha’Carri Richardson’s losing streak continued after two back-to-back losses over the weekend.
Richardson came in fourth place in the 200-meter race at the Wanda Diamond League competition on Friday, reported Yahoo Sports. She was bested by Jamaican Shericka Jackson and British runner Dina Asher-Smith, who came in second and third, respectively. Namibian Christine Mboma scored the top spot with a 21.84sec finish.
Two days later, Richardson appeared in the 100m at the Meeting Città di Padova in Italy. The 21-year-old sprinter finished at the same time as first place winner Javianne Oliver, according to World Track.
Richardson hasn’t had an impressive showing since her appearance in the Olympic trials earlier this summer. In June, she secured her spot in the Olympics when she finished the 100-meter-dash in 10.64 seconds.
A couple weeks later, she was suspended by USATF and unable to compete in the Olympics after she failed a drug test. Richardson made her highly anticipated return to track in the Prefontaine Classic on August 21 but fans were left disappointed after she came in ninth place, per NBC. In addition to her professional woes, Richardson has caught flak for throwing shade at other runners.
The Texas native reflected on her turbulent year with a series of selfies in her Instagram stories on Sunday, reported People Magazine.
“Learned so much this year, lose so much this year but not one time did I break babyyy,” she wrote in one slide.
“21 and coming hard till I’m done,” she wrote in another.
Richardson also paid tribute to her family members by posting photos of them and thanking them for supporting her.
“I thank y’all for teaching me the strength I never knew I had. I thank you for teaching me my value before I even knew it existed,” she wrote. “I thank y’all for teaching me to live my truth yet understand my future. I thank you for teaching me not to want for anything and to work for everything,” she said alongside each photo. “To my babies I WILL NEVER STOP SO YALL CAN KEEP GOING. 2022 I don’t feel sorry for any of you.”
