A few days after she stunned everyone to record an impressive win in the 100m race, American star Sha’Carri Richardson once again made headlines. This time, the 23-year-old showed off her leadership skills as she led Team USA to a historic triumph at the 4x100m relay race.

Richardson became a controversial figure in the athletics world after she was banned from the Tokyo Olympics. The athlete was called out for consuming marijuana. However, this setback has not stopped her from making a comeback, and she has once again shown the world her incredible talent.

The US Team was one of the favorites to win the race, along with the Jamaican team. The two sets of athletes once again gave their all. It came to Richardson, who played the role of anchor, to take them over the line. She would duly follow the task she was given and cross the finish line first to shatter the championship record.

She, along with teammates Tammari Davis, TeeTee Terry, and Gabby Thomas, completed the event in 41.03 seconds. This broke the previous championship record as the USA ran away with the gold medals.

The World Athletics Championship on Saturday saw Team USA set multiple records. Apart from Sha’Carri Richardson leading the US to a historic triumph, Noah Lyles would do something incredible as well. He would also lead the US men’s team and help them win the 4x100m race. This victory completed a sweep for the country at the relay race.

Lyles continued his hot form in Budapest. The 26-year-old would go 3-for-3 with victories in 100m and 200m championships. He would also defend his 200m title in the process. As he crossed the finishing line, he was spotted shouting “Three” and lifting three fingers to signal his dominance this year. By accomplishing this extraordinary feat, he joined an exclusive list. He became the second athlete to win the triple at the World Championship after the legendary Usain Bolt did so in 2015.

“We did what we came to do. We got the job done, regardless of the situation,” Lyles said after his win. He, along with Christain Coleman, Fred Kerley, and Brandon Carnes, clinched the gold in a world-leading 37.38 seconds. Italians Marcell Jacobs and Filippo Tortu were among those who had to settle for a second-place finish as they crossed the line at 37.62 seconds. Team Jamaica completed the top three with a bronze medal finish at the championship.
