Sha'Carri Richardson has made a major comeback, winning the World Athletics Championships in Budapest with a record time of 10.65. Sha'Carri defeated Jamaica's Shericka Jackson and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who won second and third place in the event.

Sha'Carri experienced a significant setback after being disqualified from the Olympic trials in 2021 due to a positive marijuana test. Her performance suffered at other events following the disqualification. After the incident, the former LSU track star released the documentary "Sub Eleven Seconds," which addressed the disqualification, her best running time, and her personal life.

Richardson's grandmother and aunt raised her and the sudden news of her biological mother's death reportedly triggered her to use marijuana during the trials in Eugene, Oregon. While in Oregon, she mentioned to a reporter that she was dealing with her mother's death and other issues.

However, the Dallas native has been focused on returning to the top of track and field. Sha'Carri also took first place in the finals to qualify for the world track and field championships. We hope she continues this streak of good luck!

She had better leave the weed alone.
