During an interview with NBC Olympics and Paralympics, the 23-year-old said: “For the holidays, I would definitely say it’s family time. I spend all my time with my family. Definitely still training because you know, can’t, I can’t know that.

“But the holidays are literally like thankfulness, giving and just embracing unity. I feel like that’s for me what the holidays are. And this is my only downtime too. That’s why I like the holidays because I can chill right now before the spring comes.”

The American had an amazing 2023 season, winning three medals at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary and ending the season as the fastest woman in the world.

At the Hungarian capital, Richardson won the 100m gold and proceeded to win a bronze medal in the 200m. In the 4x100m relay team, she anchored her team to victory.

After having an awesome 2023 season, the athlete is now preparing for the major events coming up in 2024, with the Paris Olympic Games being at the top of the list.
