Sha'Carri Richardson loses the 100m at the Prefontaine Classic to Jamaican Elaine Thompson-Herah.

On Saturday afternoon, American track fans tuned in to the Prefontaine Classic, wanting to see Sha'Carri Rirchadson dominate the international field of athletes. But it was Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica, not Richardson, who stunned the audience. 

Thompson-Herah easily defeated the opposition in the women's 100m at Hayward Field, clocking in at 10.54 seconds. Thompson-Herah, who was part of the Jamaican trio who swept the women's 100m in Tokyo, broke a Diamond League record and ran the second-fastest time in the competition's history, according to World Athletics. Thompson-time Herah's was also a personal best. 

Richardson, however, did not have a good day on Saturday. Richardson's comeback did not live up to the hype, finishing last.
