Richardson breezes to 100 meters victory

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Sha’Carri Richardson breezed to a win in the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials to secure her spot at the Tokyo Games. Richardson, with her long hair colored orange, finished in a time of 10.86 seconds. Javianne Oliver was runner-up in 10.99 and Teahna Daniels took third in 11.03. The 21-year-old Richardson is big on hair color, just like two-time Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce of Jamaica. Richardson also draws inspiration from the late Florence Griffith Joyner, which is a reason why she wears her nails so long. The favorite entering the meet, Richardson is now on a list of American champions that includes world-record holder Griffith Joyner.
