Life is good for Sha’Carri Richardson.

Richardson dropped a world-leading time in the 100 at the U.S. Olympic trials last month, she is entering the Paris Olympics as the favorite in the marquee sprint event and during the Olympic Games, she will be on the cover of Vogue.

Richardson is set to grace the cover of Vogue during August. The 24-year-old sprinter posted Vogue’s digital cover on her Instagram page.

In the Vogue feature story, Richardson talked about her close relationship with her family and her preparation for her first Olympics following her highly publicized suspension during the Tokyo Games.

“I’m not back, I’m better,” Richardson said to Vogue. “I don’t just mean I’m a better runner, it’s beyond that. I’m better at being Sha’Carri. I’m better at being myself.”

Richardson qualified for the Paris Olympics after running a gold-medal winning time of 10.71 at the trials. Her time is the No. 1 mark in the world this year.

She is trying to become the first U.S. woman to win an Olympic gold medal in the 100 since Gail Devers at the 1996 Atlanta Games. She is also slated to be a part of Team USA’s 4×100-realy team in Paris.

“Every time you step on the track, it’s a validation of the time you’ve put in, the sacrifices you make on the daily,” Richardson said, per Vogue. “When I get on the blocks, it’s about getting the job done. I know there’s joy at the other end, at the finish line. But I also know I’ve got to earn that happiness.”
