Sha'Carri Richardson's Documentary, 'Sub Eleven Seconds' Will Be Released

Sha'Carri Richardson's documentary, Sub-Eleven Seconds, was executive produced by the late Virgil Abloh and recently screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

The documentary showed the athlete's career and downfall after being banned from the 2021 Olympics.

The young sprinter tested positive for marijuana before the competition. Although the Olympics outlaws athletes from using controlled substances, marijuana was legal in Oregon when she consumed it.

Richardson stated that she used marijuana to cope with her mother's death. Yet, she was still unable to compete. Although the media and other athletes reproached her after the incident, she also received an outpour of love and encouragement.

Hopefully, the documentary will propel her forward to get in the winning seat for track & field again.
