World's fastest woman Sha'Carri Richardson revealed she will no longer make her season's debut at the Miramar Invitational and has given her reasons for the development.

World 100m champion Sha'Carri Richardson will no longer make her 2024 season's debut at the Miramar Invitational on April 6th, and instead will postpone her first individual race appearance of the year to a later date.

Richardson was scheduled to compete in the 100m and 200m but will no longer do that, stating her reasons via a video announcement on her Instagram story.

Sha'Carri Richardson dominated the 100m event by running the fastest times in 2023

"I will not be competing this weekend in Miramar, so I don't want everybody there to hope so. Definitely, it's going to be a great meet, great athletes, and everything that will be there, but I will not be one of those athletes this weekend.

"Different year, different approach, different energy to come," said the world's fastest woman.

Last year, Richardson made her comeback season's debut at the same meet, where she clocked a windy 10.57s - the fourth-fastest 100m time in all wind conditions.

Now unavailable this year, it isn't public when she will officially run her first race this season, although she's listed to compete in the 200m at Xiamen Diamond League on April 20th.
