Two of the fastest women this year have battled it out on the track and of course, only one could prevail. The Dallas, Texas-bred runner, Sha’Carri Richardson, took home the gold at a Diamond League meet in Silesia, Poland.

Amongst other women in the heat, Richardson was up against another sprinter, Shericka Jackson. The Diamond League meet came just as Jackson hit a personal best of 10.65 seconds at the Jamaican trials. Although Richardson came in first, Jackson took second place.

With a record time of 10.76 seconds, Richardson said she is happy.

This was a great competition, it was amazing. I executed correctly.”

Richardson continued, “I love the atmosphere here. I wish we could replicate this in the U.S.. All the energy, all the love from the audience. I was satisfied with my race altogether.”
