She Came, She Saw, She Conquered – Sha’Carri Richardson Turns Pro

By now, you have more than likely learned the name. LSU sprinter, Sha’Carri Richardson put the world on notice when she shattered the collegiate women’s 100-meter dash record, breezing cross the line in 10.75 seconds to win the NCAA Division 1 championship. Her time in the 100-meters also set a new U20 record and is good for ninth fastest in the world.

However, Richardson was not done. Shortly after, the freshman set another U20 record in the 200-meter dash as she crossed the line in 22.17 seconds. The previous record of 22.18 was held by the most decorated female in track & field history – Allyson Felix.

On Wednesday, Richardson announced that she is going pro via an Instagram post.

Richardson has not publicly named her agent or sponsor at this time. Her decision makes perfect sense having made an indelible mark in her lone collegiate season.
