Sha’Carri Richardson, after clinching the 100-meter title at the 2023 Toyota USATF Outdoor Championships, stated, “I’m not back. I’m better.”

She further demonstrated her prowess by winning gold in the 100-meter and 4×100-meter relay, and capturing bronze in the 200-meters at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest. The two-time World Champion aims to extend her success at the Prefontaine Classic.

Noah Lyles, who recently bagged three gold medals in the 100-meter, 200-meter, and 4×100-meter relay at the World Athletics Championships, also has his eyes set on a new accolade.

Having already secured four Wanda Diamond League Champion trophies in the 200m for 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2022, Lyles is now seeking his first 100-meter title at the Diamond League Final. The Olympic medalist clocked a wind-legal personal best of 9.83 seconds this season, earning him the top spot in the global rankings for the event.

  1. Had Elaine kept her then coach, Coach Francis she would have been a world record holder with just 0:05 seconds away from a world record back in the 2021/2022 season. At 31 years of age she’s too old now to be a world record holder.

  2. Had Elaine kept Coach Francis who was her coach when she ran 10:54 she would have broken the world record back in the 2021/2022 season. We will never know now coz at 31 years old she will be too old.

  3. How much has changed since 2021. Elaine ran 10.54 and was first. Sha’Carri ran 11.14 and came last. Sha’Carri best time ever is 10.65. Shericka best time ever is 10.65. I don’t even think Lyles was in the 100M in 2021even though his PB is 10.83 which was way slower than the top 3 men last time in Eugene…Things have changed.
