Sha’Carri Richardson Breaks NCAA Women’s 100M Dash Record
An LSU athlete recently made history. Sha’Carri Richardson a freshman from Dallas, Texas, stunned onlookers last weekend when she broke the NCCAA Women’s 100-meter dash record.
Sha’Carri completed the race in 10.75 seconds, a huge milestone for the 19-year-old who’s been dubbed the “top sprint recruit.”
The previous NCAA record of 10.78 was set in 1989 by Dawn Sowell.
Sports Illustrated reports that Sha’Carri is the ninth-fastest in the world and there’s buzz that she’ll become the new face of Women’s Olympic sprinting. She recently told reporters that a decision on whether or not she’ll go pro will be “coming soon.”
Breaking records like this and she’s only a freshman?! We can’t wait to see more of Sha’Carri, she’s got a bright future ahead of her.
