In a world that makes sense, Sha’Carri Richardson would be competing in the Olympics.

In a world that makes sense, Richardson wouldn’t have to cope with family trauma as a 21-year old, she wouldn’t have to hear about the death of her biological mother from a stranger, and the committees governing Olympic competition wouldn’t have an outdated policy on a drug that has been proven to have natural health benefits — but certainly running faster isn’t one of them.

But sadly, oftentimes this world doesn’t make any sense. And imperfect circumstances usually create imperfect situations.

That’s exactly what we have here with Richardson.

The breakout track star will officially miss the entire 2021 Olympics in Tokyo after the slim hope that Richardson would be able to compete in the 4x100 relay — after her 30-day suspension disqualified her from the individual 100m dash — was, itself, dashed.
