Sha’Carri Richardson Gets Dallas Track Field Named After Her

Champion sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson’s legacy will live on through one of her hometown’s track locations.

According to the Olympics, a unanimous vote by the Dallas Independent School District Board of Trustees on Oct. 19 concluded that the track field would carry on under Richardson’s name. The 23-year-old track star earned her running chops at Carter High School, located within the district.

“This means so much. If you from the city, you know the stadium is rooted in memories. I’m literally speechless,” Richardson posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The Olympics website reported that the meet, hosted in Budapest, Hungary, found Richardson victorious over fellow competitors Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson. “From the beginning of the journey, I’m [honored], I’m blessed, it was a great competition and brought out the best in myself. I’m not back; I’m better, and I’m going to continue to be better,” the three-time world medallist said.

Richardson’s present honor comes amid several hiccups in her career. In January, the championship runner was kicked off an American Airlines flight for arguing with a flight attendant. However, she has climbed to the top with her winning status.

“I found my peace back on the track, and I’m not letting anything or anybody take that anymore,” she said in May, according to BE.

Sha’Carri Richardson more than deserves the honor. Congratulations! (To Copy: Please don’t edit out the last line.)
