Sha’Carri Richardson will not compete in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. However, the 21-year-old was sprinting all over our televisions last night.

The YBF sprinter – who was dubbed the fastest woman in America – was featured in a new Beats campaign, which premiered during Game 6 of the NBA Finals last night.

In the ad, Sha’Carri gears up for a 100-meter race with a pair of red Beats Studio Buds earphones in her ears as Kanye West’s new track, “No Child Left Behind” plays. Yeezy scored and edited the minute-long clip.

The ad also confirmed Kanye’s forthcoming album DONDA will be released this Friday, July 23rd.

As you know, Sha’Carri Richardson will not be competing at the Tokyo Olympics after she tested positive for THC, which is a chemical found in marijuana. While it’s legal in the state she was in, it was against the U.S. Olympic Track and Field rules. She qualified for The Games after running the 100-meter in 10.86 seconds, earning her the title as the fastest woman in America.

“There will be ups and down in life, but it’s important to remember to RUN YOUR OWN RACE,” Sha’Carri wrote in the caption on Instagram. “Love to @beatsbydre and @kanyewest for the support.”

She also said a new commercial and Kanye song would be released soon.

“Another commercial and another new Ye song dropping tomorrow!,” she continued. “DONDA out on Friday! Let’s goo”

Yeezy is gearing up for his big release:

Back to the NBA…

The Milwaukee Bucks won their first championship in 50 years afterdefeating the Phoenix Suns (105 – 98) during Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Bucks leading scorer Giannis Antetokounmpo (aka the Greek Freak) did what needed to be done all season, and came back from injury with a vengeance. Now, he’s the 2021 NBA Finals MVP.  After the win, Giannis said he was ordering 50 chicken nuggets with BBQ sauce from Chick-fil-a.

All three of the Antetokounmpo brothers in the league are NBA Champs.

After the win, Giannis hopped on IG Live to celebrate with his brother/Bucks teammate Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who was ruled OUT to pay due to “health and safety protocols.”
