Sha'Carri Richardson is ready to 'show the world that I'm here to stay'

Just as she promised, Sha'Carri Richardson is back.

The sprinter on Saturday is set to compete in the Prefontaine Classic in what will be her first race since she missed the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for marijuana and being suspended for a month. Ahead of the race, Richardson told the Today show she's feeling "excited" and "overjoyed" to be "getting back to doing what it is that I love to do." She also reflected on how it felt to watch the Olympics while not being able to compete herself.
