SHA’CARRI RICHARDSON ‘THAT’ GIRL IS RUNNING HER RACE
Now the fastest woman in America, the new Olympian Sha'Carri Richardson is on her way to the Tokyo Olympics! This past weekend the track star made the U.S. Olympic team for the first time and will represent America this summer. Richardson won the 100-meter with a time of 10.86 seconds. She made it known that she wants the world to know that she's "that girl." She is grounded, grateful, and gracious as she took this moment not just for herself but with her biggest support system, her family. She pushed through, showed out, and continued to pursue her dreams during the Olympic trials just days after the passing of her biological mother. Richardson has gone viral on the internet because of her fantastic win, her fierce confidence, and her victory run towards her grandmother, capturing the heart and attention of fans, old and new. She is now known to be the youngest woman to win the 100-meter during an Olympic trail since 1980.
May Sha'Carri and the rest of the Olympians heading to Tokyo have a safe and victorious Olympic season!
Stay focused on your purpose and run your race. Nobody else will and nobody can do that but you!
"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified." - 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
