World champion Sha'Carri Richardson has shared three tips that helped her have a glamorous 2023 season.

Reigning World 100m champion Sha’Carri Richardson has had an impeccable 2023 season and she has come out to share the secret behind her immense growth.

Richardson, 23, disclosed that over time, she has been able to gain a wealth of experience and shared some virtues picked up in an interview with Real Talk with Tee.

The American explained that the first thing she was able to learn was to take accountability for her actions and also love herself.

“Taking accountability is one of the things that has helped me grow…you have to be able to take accountability for your mistakes and correct the mistakes in yourself before you correct anything else.

"I would also say self-love…that’s the big thing. No matter how much the world can give you love, you need to know how to give yourself love first.

"You also need to have confidence since it is one of the things you need to have whether you lose or win. You also need confidence on your better days or ugly days,” she explained.

The sprint sensation also noted that the sun will always rise again as long as one opens their mind and that should always be a reason to keep going.

Meanwhile, the American has had a glamorous season, bagging wins in almost all her 100m races. She only lost twice, at the Gyulai István Memorial, a Hungarian Athletics Grand Prix where she finished second and proceeded to finish fourth at the Prefontaine Classic.

The highlight of her season was when she stunned the Jamaican duo of Shericka Jackson and Shelly-Anne Fraser-Pryce to win the 100m at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

She clocked 10.65, equaling Jackson’s world leading time to clinch the top prize at the global showpiece. She also made an impression in several Diamond League Meeting races that she competed in.
