EUGENE, Ore. -- Athing Mu once again confirmed her place as the new star of the women's 800-meter after her victory Saturday at the star-studded Prefontaine Classic.

Mu, 19, won the 800-meter gold medal for the United States in Tokyo earlier this month. She finished Saturday's race in 1 minute, 55.04 seconds, an American record.

"I knew this was going to probably be a little a little tougher just because I came off the Olympic Games and running a [personal record] there, so I wasn't really looking at time," Mu said. "I just wanted to come out here, run with whoever was out there and just be competitive as usual. Very satisfied with the 1:55.04. To PR again this season, that's pretty great.''

Olympic bronze medalist Noah Lyles won the 200 in 19.52, also a meet record and a world best this year.

Kenyan Norah Jeruto won the steeplechase in 8 minutes, 53.65 seconds, another meet record and a world best this year, while second-place finisher Courtney Frerichs finished in 8 minutes, 57.77 seconds to set an American record.

Kenya's Faith Kipyegon won the 1,500 in 3 minutes, 53.23 seconds.

Ryan Crouser, the gold medalist in shot put who set a world record in the event at the trials, won the event at the Pre with a meet-record mark of 23.15 meters (75 feet, 11 1/2 inches). Pedro Pechardo of Portugal won the triple jump.

In the women's field events, American Katie Nageotte won the pole vault, and Iryna Herashchenko of Ukraine took the high jump.

The Prefontaine Classic, named after renowned Oregon runner Steve Prefontaine, is the eighth stop on the Diamond League schedule and the only U.S.-based meet. This year's event will serve as a preview for next year's World Championships scheduled at Hayward Field.

Olympic women's 100m medallists in Prefontaine showdown

TT Newsday 23 August, 2021 - 07:20am

Thompson-Herah sprinted to victory in a personal best time of 10.54 seconds, the second fastest women's 100m time ever, behind US' Florence Griffith-Joyner's world-record time of 10.49, while her fellow Jamaicans Fraser-Pryce and Jackson clocked 10.73 and 10.76 respectively.

American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, who topped the US pre-Olympic trials but had her result invalidated after testing positive for marijuana thus forcing her to miss the Games, made an anticipated but overhyped return to the track.

She placed last in 11.14 seconds. After the race, she was undeterred with her return performance.

“Count me out if you want to. Talk all the s*** you want. Cause I'm here to stay. I'm not done," Richardson said.

Meanwhile, Canadian Andre De Grasse followed up on his bronze medal performance at the Tokyo Games by winning the men’s 100m final in a blistering 9.74.

De Grasse, who has a Trinidadian mother, got the better of this year’s Olympic 100m silver medallist Fred Kerley (9.78) and Ronnie Baker (9.82), both Americans.

Thirty-nine year old, five-time Olympic medallist Justin Gatlin was sixth in 9.93.

In the men’s 200m final, USA grabbed the 1-2-3 with current world champions and Olympic bronze medallist Noah Lyles topping the field in 19.52. Countrymen Kenneth Bednarek (19.80) and Josephus Lyles (20.03) were second and third respectively.

Look: Sha’Carri Richardson’s New Tweet Is Going Viral

What's trending in the sports world today.

Champion sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson has found a lot of people making fun of her for finishing ninth in her most recent race. After telling them off to the media following the race, she had a new message this afternoon.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Richardson clapped back at her detractors without any words. She posted a gif from the movie Hancock where the title character listens to dozens of angry citizens complaining at him, dismissing them at the same time.

The message is pretty clear. Sha’Carri Richardson hears what everyone is saying about her – and she doesn’t care at all.

Naturally, there are plenty of critics and trolls in the comments section – hundreds of them. But there are also over 12,000 likes and 4,000 retweets of people supporting her clapping back at her detractors.

— Sha’Carri Richardson (@itskerrii) August 22, 2021

Sha’Carri Richardson was suspended from track & field and barred from joining Team USA at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo after testing positive for cannabis. There was significant debate and backlash over the decision, but Richardson was ultimately unable to race until yesterday.

Unfortunately, her first race back didn’t go the way she planned.

Richardson isn’t backing down from being outspoken and confident though. And no one should reasonably expect her to. There are only a handful of people on earth who have accomplished what Richardson has on a track.

We haven’t heard the last of Sha’Carri Richardson. Not by a long shot.

Taylor Anderson Talks Impact Of Sha'Carri Richardson

DALLAS — The Cowboys faced off against the Texans without a key member of their coaching staff Saturday night. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was held out of the contest because of COVID-related issues.

The Cowboys released a statement saying both Quinn and defensive tackle Carlos Watkin will not participate in the game out of an abundance of caution under the guidelines of the NFL’s COVID-related protocols.

Both men left the stadium earlier today out of an abundance of caution under the guidelines of the NFL’s COVID related protocols, according to #Cowboys PR. https://t.co/Twp40k4fPO

Quinn’s absence is especially impactful given this was supposed to be a dress rehearsal for the Cowboys defense. Primary defenders were expected to play through the first half. Quinn has been doing everything in his power to accelerate the learning curve given he’s installing a new defensive scheme.

Both men will be revaluated by the Cowboys medical staff tomorrow.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce Stole Sha'Carri Richardson's Memorable Interview at the Prefontaine Classic

The Big Lead 22 August, 2021 - 09:25am

Jamaica's Elaine Thompson-Herah won with countrywoman Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Sherika Jackson finishing second and third respectively, just like in the Olympics. NBC Sports caught up with Richardson after her ninth-place finish and she was defiant.

Certainly the most interesting interview by someone who finished last you'll see in awhile. pic.twitter.com/1tsoRTsxxi

That's the extreme confidence of an elite athlete. It sounds a little weird to remind people you're the sixth fastest woman ever after eight women just beat you in one race, but as Richardson said, "talk all the sh-t you want."

And finally, make sure to watch the reaction of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce as she walks behind Richardson. Excellent meme material.
