Sha’Carri Richardson had a rough weekend after her devastating loss at the Prefontaine Classic but the track star is seemingly taking things all in stride and remaining positive.
Keeping things light-hearted – she changed her Twitter picture, to include her interview at the games and the very moment her opponents walked by the camera.
Along with the change to her profile, she tweeted “the only way from 9th is up”.
Only way from 9th is up! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

Sha’Carri has received a ton of flack online however, her last tweet garnered a ton of support even in the midst of critics who still do not think she is humble enough.
Here are a few of them:
How is this not being humble? It’s an actual fact. If she came in last, the only way to go is up. Definitely wasn’t the World’s stage. And she’s literally talking about improving in the future which is…on to the next. 🤷🏾♀️ Y’all weird

“Always stay gracious best revenge is your paper”. Most of the people dragging you aren’t the top nine in their chosen careers or school. You doing better than most ❤️. Believe that. At least now you know who would rather see you fall. You’re young. Don’t worry about it.

Sometimes you just have to have a sense of humor and some good PR with this stuff, from the looks of things, Sha’Carri will be just fine.
