U.S. Sprinter ‘in no rush’ to break world record


US Vogue magazine has dubbed her the “Flo-Jo of our time”, but Sha’Carri Richardson has said she’s in “no rush” to break her idol’s 23-year-old 100m world record.

The American won the 100m at the US Olympic trials in 10.86 seconds – the sixth fastest time in history.

Richardson, 21, has been compared to Florence Griffith-Joyner, the 1988 Olympic champion – and was asked on Tuesday about trying to beat her world record of 10.49secs.
