Despite the polarization on the topic, Richardson’s supporters have minced no words about their support of the embattled track star. Among those standing by her side? Sportswear giant Nike.
It’s not a good week to be Sha’Carri Richardson.
The famous sprinter, who has seemingly become a global sensation overnight for her history-making runs, was expected to be a shining star at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. Her popularity, characterized in part by her athleticism as well as flamboyant personal style (i.e. hair & nails), has even drawn comparisons to the legendary Florence Joyner (FloJo).
However, after testing positive for marijuana use during a recent routine drug screening, Richardson was suspended from the U.S. Olympic team and barred from running her signature race in Tokyo.
The news marks only the beginning of a controversial period for Richardson.
