Immediately after her historic performance, Richardson celebrated with fellow Americans Melissa Jefferson and Twanisha Terry, who both qualified for the Olympics as well. Richardson also went into the stands and embraced her grandmother

Richardson’s latest triumph comes three years after facing a major setback, reported. The U.S. sprinter was heartbroken in 2021 when she won her race at the trials, but then learned that she is banned from the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for THC. Speaking to reporters at that time, Richardson said she tested positive for THC because she used marijuana at the trials in Oregon, where the substance is legal. The track-and-field star said she was using marijuana to cope after the death of her birth mother.
