“It was an incredible get once again to the game,” the 21-year-old said. “I needed to have the option to come and perform. Having the month off, managing all I needed to manage, I’m not annoyed with myself by any means.
“This is one race, I’m not done. You realize what I’m able to do. Forget about me assuming you need to, on the grounds that I’m setting down deep roots.”
In front of Richardson was another Jamaican, Briana Williams, who scored her first Olympic gold in the 4×100 meter occasion in Tokyo. Williams completed in eighth spot with a period of 11.09.
