Shelly Ann vs. Sha’Carri A 100 Meter Olympic Showdown in Tokyo
Written by adminVibe on June 28, 2021
While the two time Olympic 100 meters champion Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce has booked her ticket to her fourth consecutive Olympic games, Sha’Carri Richardson made plans of her own for Tokyo after winning the 100m race at the U.S. trials. Fraser Pryce ran 10.71 seconds in Jamaica while Richardson clocked in at 10.86 seconds in America which doesn’t take a math expert to figure out is a difference of .15 seconds.
The Champion Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce
Dubbed the fastest woman alive, she was crowned National Champion for a fourth time after her victory in the women’s 100 meters final of the JAAA National Senior Championships at the Jamaica National Stadium. It must be mentioned she held off a late surge from surprise speedster Shericka Jackson whom we will have to keep an eye on in the future.
The Challenger Sha’Carri Richardson
While Shelly-Ann fought off a late surge in her race, Sha’Carri Richardson was just that, she the late surge to come from behind and win the U.S. Trials. I think if Richardson, and Fraser-Pryce can get through the “red tape” it takes to get on the track this will be one race we will never forget.
As much as I love Shelly-Ann my opinion is this in favor of Sha’Carri Richardson. For one of the main reasons Mike Tyson got knocked out by Buster Douglas I think Richardson could take the crown. Sha’Carri Richardson lost her biological mother prior to the Olympic Trials. Which is similar to when Buster Douglas lost his mother before facing Tyson. When you loose a parent that way it brings another energy, and purpose out in some athletes. I think we may see her transform that loss of her mother into a strong performance on the track.
The world will be watching, not only to see what her hair color choice will be, but to see if Sha’Carri Richardson is the one to unseat the reining champion, The Worlds Fastest Woman Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce.
According to the Olympics’ official website, Richardson has said that her hair hue is a way of expressing herself.
“The color is based off how I want to feel. Like the red puts me in a very dominating mood. And sometimes I feel that can be overwhelming, so when I need to calm down I have black hair. The black calms me and makes me blend in instead of being extra,” she explained.
Whatever color mood she’s in we will have the popcorn ready in front of wherever the Olympic trials are shown to catch what may turn out to be a historic race.
