Sha'Carri Richardson failed to advance past the first round in the women's 100m at the US track and field championships in Oregon.
American Sha'Carri Richardson failed to advance in the US trials on Thursday, ending her hopes of competing in the 100m event at the World Championships.
Richardson got off to a rough start and never fully recovered, walking past members of the media after finishing fifth in her heat in 11.31 seconds, a far cry from the speedy, 10.85-second performance she produced in New York earlier this month.
Richardson was among the favourites in the event, after dominating at the U.S. Olympic trials a year ago, only to see her ticket to Tokyo evaporate following a positive cannabis test.
This championship is the American team's trials for the World Championships at the same venue on July 15. These are the first world championships ever to be held in the United States at the same track.
The 22-year-old was fifth in her heat.
Richardson, who was down in 23rd overall, can still make the World Championships as she is competing in the 200m.
Aleia Hobbs was fastest in the women's 100m after running 10.88secs.
