sha carri richardson miramar: Sha’Carri Richardson has had good luck on the track at the Ansin Sports Complex in Miramar. Richardson raced the fastest time of her life today, despite a healthy tailwind, breaking her personal best of 10.72 that she set at this competition two years ago. Richardson’s performance in the final was even better as she got out quickly, built up a significant lead halfway through the race, and celebrated by throwing her hands up a few meters before the finish line, according to commentator Ato Boldon, who said Richardson had the best start he had ever seen from her when she ran 10.75 in the preliminary round.

Her time ranked as the fourth-fastest 100-meter performance by a woman overall.
According to the sprint conversion tool by Jonas Mureika, Richardson’s 10.57 seconds translate to 10.77 seconds in still conditions. That’s an excellent result for April, and it actually outperforms her 10.72 personal best time from this meet in 2021, which was aided by a +1.6 tailwind and translated to 10.81 with no wind. In reality, according to Mureika’s calculator, Richardson’s 10.77 100-meter time from the 2021 USATF Golden Games, which translated to 10.68 with no wind, was the best 100-meter performance of her career.
Richardson’s talent, though, has never been in question. She is capable of running really quickly, and this is true even early in the season. She has not yet been able to maintain her composure for the duration of a full season and advance to a world championship.
Richardson won the NCAAs in a spectacular 10.75 seconds in 2019, but the 19-year-old appeared worn out at USAs after a tough season and came in last in the final. Richardson performed admirably in the Olympic Trials in 2021 but was disqualified after testing positive for cannabis and was denied the opportunity to direct the Games. And despite a sluggish start to the season, Richardson entered the USAs last year as one of the favorites. However, he bombed out of the 100 meters in the first round.
All of this is to suggest that the track season is lengthy and that Richardson’s performance in the USAs in July and the Worlds in August, should she qualify for them, will be evaluated. But it was a very promising beginning. It is unknown if Richardson will compete before the Botswana Golden Grand Prix on April 29 in Gaborone, when she is due to compete again.
Coleman does well in 200 but Bednarek falters.
Although Christian Coleman is primarily known as a short sprinter, he performed admirably in his opening individual contest of the 2023 outdoor season by starting quickly and outpacing Letsile Tebogo by only three thousandths of a second. Coleman appeared to have passed Tebogo just before the finish line after gaining on him down the home straight, but Coleman had the better lean and won in 20.00, a respectable early-season performance. (his personal best is 19.85 from 2017).
Tebogo, on the other hand, appeared to be in discomfort and need assistance getting off the track after the race. While everything was going on, Olympic and World 200 silver medalist Kenny Bednarek appeared off his game and finished his first race of 2023 in third place with a dismal time of 20.37.
