US Champion Sha’Carri Richardson extended her unbeaten run this season, defeating Shericka Jackson for the second time to win the Silesia Diamond League.
In a battle of the two fastest women in the world this season, Sha’Carri Richardson defeated Shericka Jackson in 10.76s (0.2) to win the women’s 100m at the Silesia Diamond League.
The newly crowned US champion had a poor start but chased down the Jamaican champion, crossing the finish line first ahead of Jackson in 10.78s, while home girl Ewa Swoboda ran a blistering Personal Best (PB) of 10.94s for third.
Richardson has been in exceptional form this season, staying unbeaten in all her 100m races and running most of the top fastest times this year.
It set a mouthwatering clash to expect in Silesia on who will record a famous win, but Richardson showed her fantastic shape not to be denied victory.
It’s her second success over the Jamaican this season, having defeated her at the Doha Diamond League back in May, also making it her second Diamond League win.
Richardson is in her best career shape heading to Budapest, and barring unforeseen circumstances, she remains the favourite for the world title.
