Sha'Carri Richardson revealed some fun facts about her before the final 2024 Prefontaine Classic race. Amid the building anticipation, the 23-year-old unveiled that she loves cooking, dancing, winning a race by a mile, and sandwiches over hotdogs, among others.

Richardson, 24, claimed the 100m and 4x100m relay titles at the 2023 World Championships. She missed out on the Tokyo Olympics 100m dash after a drug ban suspended her for a month but will look to make her debut at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Coming into 2024, Sha'Carri Richardson swept the 200m silver and bronze at the Xiamen Diamond League and Shanghai Diamond League, respectively. But in her 100m season-opener at the Eugene Diamond League, the 24-year-old reigning 100m World Champion ran in a remarkable 10.83s to claim the 100m title ahead of the world's fastest woman alive, Elaine Thompson-Herah.

Combining track prowess and a vibrant personality like a pro, the sixth-fastest woman of all time gives a sneak peek into her life, sharing some unknown facts about herself with USATF. In an Instagram reel posted by USATF captioned:
