Sha'Carri Richardson took to Instagram to reveal that she recently got out of a relationship with a Jamaican sprinter, who she claims was abusive. 

On Monday (May 16), Sha'Carri shared a message on her Instagram Stories, which reads, "I was in a relationship with a Jamaican athlete that never cared about me from jump. I was abused and stole from yet protected her from the judgement of her country and family while they dragged me. I had to deal with [homophobia] and so much more that I'm still healing from."

Sha'Carri, who rose to fame in 2019 as a freshman at Louisiana State University, running 10.75 seconds to break the 100 m record, then shared a photo of her and her ex. The following year, Richardson qualified for the Summer Olympics after running 10.72 seconds, making her the sixth-fastest woman of all time and the fourth-fastest American woman in history. However, she tested positive for cannabis use following her 100 m final at the U.S. Trials and was barred from competing at the Olympics.
