Sha’Carri Richardson Snatched Her Own Wig Before Snatching the 100M Race Win at the US Track and Field Championships
Securing another “snatching” at the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics.
Before the start of the 100m race at the U.S. Track and Field Championships, she had a sudden change of heart about her look and decided to switch things up. Instead of her usual orange install, she opted for scalp feed-in braids underneath a wig. In a video posted on Twitter, Richardson can be seen getting ready for the race with a determined expression on her face. Suddenly, she made a bold move and removed the wig, revealing straight-backs with intricate designs and colorful tendrils. Her braids were black at the scalp and gradually faded into a beautiful platinum ombre. One side of her head featured braids styled in a heart shape, while the other was adorned with a star.
In all this glory, the athlete quickly sprinted into first place during the 100m race. With lightning-fast speed, she crossed the finish line in just 10.82 seconds, securing a national title and earning her spot in the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics. Will she snatch wigs (literally) in Paris next year? Time will only tell.
