Sha’Carri Richardson: World’s fastest woman officially declared faster than football speedster Kylian Mbappe

World 100m champion Sha’Carri Richardson is officially declared faster than one of football’s fastest men in history Kylian Mbappe.
World’s fastest woman Sha’Carri Richardson has officially been declared faster than football star Kylian Mbappe.

In a post by UK-based media firm BBC Sport on their X page, they revealed Mbappe’s speed and time in the 100m, which is significantly lower than Richardson’s Personal Best (PB) of 10.65s.

According to BBC Sport, Mbappe, regarded as one of the fastest footballers clocked 10.9s in the 100m and tried to compare it to track legend Usain Bolt’s World Record of 9.58s.

The post ignited track fans’ displeasure, who understand the magnanimous difference between both times and using ‘just over a second slower’ was a disrespect to Bolt’s record and legacy in the event.

For context, the 10.9 seconds clocked by Mbappe is slower than Sha’Carri Richardson’s world title-winning time of 10.65 seconds or being in the top four of the women’s 100m final at the 2023 World Championships in Budapest.
