Usain Bolt is giving some advice to Sha’Carri Richardson.
He advised her to “train harder” and “speak less.” In the New York Post, Usain said, “I would tell Sha’Carri to train harder and to be focused and not say too much. If you talk that big talk, you have to back it up. So just train hard and focus on that and try to come back, do it, and then talk about it.”
As reported on Hot New Hip Hop, Sha’Carri seemingly responded to Usain’s criticism. The track star shared a post in her Instagram Story of fan commentary. The fan said, “Everybody wants to give advice in the media, but none of them actually take the time to speak to her outside the media. So I feel her. Stop speaking on me when you don’t even speak to me.” Sha’Carri added,
“I could not have said it better myself. Y’all haven’t even heard the half of me.” Take a look at a screengrab captured by The Shade Room blog:
This comes after Sha’Carri was suspended from the Olympics after failing a drug test for weed. She was able to compete later in the Prefontaine Classic race. She ended up placing ninth in the 100-meter women’s race.
Jamaica dominated the women’s field. Thompson-Herah, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (10.73 seconds), and Shericka Jackson (10.76 seconds) were the first three runners to cross the finish line. They took home the gold, silver, and bronze medals at the Tokyo Olympics.
The drama started when Sha’Carri seemingly shaded Jamaicans when she liked a Tweet that talked about their hygiene. Take a look:
