Wow good job sha carri maintain your position 😑😑
First place is what is important. NOT SECOND PLACE!!!
Jacob Hamm you think is easy try am first than u go know than you will know second place is important even 3rd place too
Bambi Love it is important to place 2nd and 3rd but 1st is what they should have focus on…if you had run in that race and place 1st how would you feel if they focused on the 2 place and ignored you who placed 1st??? But then again l realized that it wouldn’t matter to you. Stay safe stay blessed.
Congratulations young lady and congrats to all the other ladies
How about highlighting the winner first…. How about that🤷🏽♀️
I bet if she had came last,all the Shacarri haters would’ve wanted it highlighted big and bold without no questions on who won.Bottomline is all the daily negativity has placed her at the centre of attraction,so no matter if she places 1st,2nd,3rd or last,her name would always be the center of attraction.
Strange that the second place person is being highlighted over the first.
Veronica Davis I was saying the same thing
Veronica Davis makes no sense. The 1st place put in the back burner smh
Veronica Davis they’re highlighting her because she’s suppose to be the next FLO-Jo in their eyes apparently but seems she SLOW-Jo!.
