Sha’Carri Richardson placed 9th.
According to USA Today:
Sha’Carri Richardson had a lot to say following the 100-meter race at the Prefontaine Classic on Saturday, her first race since being banned from competing in the Tokyo Olympics due to a failed drug test.
The 21-year-old finished ninth with a time of 11.14.
“This is one race. I’m not done. You know what I’m capable of,” Richardson said after the race. “Count me out if you want to. Talk all the (expletive) you want, ’cause I’m here to stay. I’m not done.”
Elaine Thompson-Herah, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Shericka Jackson took first, second and third, respectively. The Jamaican trio also swept the podium in Tokyo, when Herah set a new Olympic record with a time of 10.61. She finished the race at the Classic with a time of 10.54.
