It has been confirmed that Sha’Carri Richardson will return to the Diamond League, racing the 200m this Friday in Brussels, after all the drama that unfolded at her race in Eugene, in addition to missing the Olympic Games due to a suspension from USATF

Richardson will go up against 200m specialist and 2019 world champion Dina Asher-Smith and the Namibian sprint duo of Beatrice Masilingi and Tokyo silver medallist Christine Mboma. Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson will also be in the race. Jackson won bronze in Tokyo in 100m and beat Richardson over 100m distance in Eugene.

Richardson dropped out of Eugene’s 200m race before it began, as she was disappointed to fall short of expectations in the 100m. This race will mark her third 200m race of the season. She last ran the event at Golden Spike Classic in Austria this past May (22.35s).
