Sha’Carri Richardson stunned the track and field world by failing to advance in the women’s 100 meter event at the United States Track and Field Championships on Thursday.

Richardson never found her stride in what is normally one of her strongest events, finishing 5th in her heat with a time of 11.31 seconds. The time was considerably slower than the 10.85 she ran earlier this month in the 100 at a meet in New York, where she finished 2nd overall.

The 22-year-old jogged quickly past an increasing cluster of journalists just after the race, with no desire to share what may have influenced the disappointing performance.

The top three finishers in the finals at the Eugene, Oregon meet will represent Team USA at the World Championships. The event, which will be held in the United States for the first time, will also take place at Eugene’s Hayward Field.

“Don’t let the media, don’t let people, don’t let a company, try to stop you from shining, because you sunshine,” Richardson told a cheering crowd of young fans at a recent New York meet. “We are the light.”
