Sha’Carri Richardson Makes First Public Appearance At The ESPYS, Naomi Osaka and Others Win Big
Last night’s star-studded ESPYS Awards held at The Rooftop at Pier 17 at the Seaport in New York City on Saturday night was another glitzy celebration of our fave athletes hitting the red carpets in their best dressed and sharing classic sports moments from the past year on the biggest (and funniest) night in sports.
If Sha’Carri Richardson and Naomi Osaka ever questioned how much public support they’re getting, any doubts most definitely have to be gone after the ESPYS Awards, where host Anthony Mackie put a spotlight on them. Sha’Carri Richardson might have been one of the biggest and highly anticipated names of the night and it seems like everyone in attendance was exceptionally happy to see her there.
She will not be able to showcase her colorful hair and long, embellished nails at the Tokyo Olympics due to testing positive for marijuana at the Team USA Olympic track and field trials in June, but she did show up to Saturday night’s event with fiery red hair and a bangin’, sparkly black dress. During the event, host Anthony Mackie showed his support for the 21-year-old sprinter and in his opening monologue took a shot at U.S.A. Track & Field over its suspension of Richardson for a positive marijuana test.
