Rumors about a relationship between Sha’Carri Richardson and Christian Coleman are denied by the athletics community: “False information”

Rumors about a relationship between Sha’Carri Richardson and Christian Coleman are denied by the athletics community: “False information”

Since Budapest last year, Sha’Carri Richardson and Christian Coleman have been embroiled in rumors that they are dating. Social media is abuzz with speculation about the duo, but insiders and other athletes have remained tight-lipped about comments. Both Richardson and Coleman’s camps insist their relationship is purely professional. As they prepare for a crucial season in which Coleman narrowly made the Olympic team and is focused on the relay, their personal lives are in stark contrast.

Coleman, known for breaking NCAA records and outrunning Usain Bolt, is now linked to Richardson, the fastest woman in the world championships. Now that the season is heating up, both athletes are fully focused on their individual paths to glory, leaving no room for distractions – romantic or otherwise.

In a recent tweet from Track Spice, it was announced that Christian Coleman has made a significant change to his training plan following his disappointing performance at this year’s Olympic qualifying competitions. The tweet read: “Christian Coleman was spotted training with Dennis Mitchell at his Star Athletics track club in Montverde, Florida, along with his girlfriend Sha’Carri Richardson. A great move by Tim Hall, who has been dating Coleman since college.” Coleman, who failed to qualify for either the 100m or 200m races, appears to be re-orienting his preparation strategy with a new coaching team.

He finished fourth in the 100 m behind Kenny Bednarek, Fred Kerley and Noah Lyles with a time of 9.93 s. He also finished fourth in the 200 m with a time of 19.89 s. In addition to Bednarek and Lyles, Erriyon Knighton secured a place in this discipline. Coleman was also excluded from participating in Tokyo in 2021 due to three failed doping tests. To ensure that he can take part in the 2028 Olympic Games in LA, he may train elsewhere.

However, the decision could be related to rumors that the two sprinters are dating. In a tweet shared by Wande Diamond League, the US sprinter had nothing but praise during a press conference. They signed it with a quote that read: “She’s a beast. @__coleman is full of love for her fellow star @itsshacarri.” Coleman also credited her with being at the forefront of women’s empowerment and taking it to a “a completely different level.”

Sha’Carri Richardson even congratulated her alleged boyfriend on his 28th birthday on Instagram. She posted a few pictures with the caption: “Happy birthday to a legend, a true icon_@_Coleman2”. They were also spotted by fans at the World Athletics Championships last year in a McDonalds in Budapest. Track Spice was the one who started the rumors. However, since it is known that Sha’Carri Richardson has an ex-girlfriend and is bisexual, we are still waiting for an official statement.

Fans are skeptical about dating rumors between Richardson and Coleman

Of course, track and field fans are speechless at this sudden news from Track and Spice. However, some of them are more skeptical than others. One fan pointed out that Coleman and Richardson seem to have already cleared up the rumors. They expressed their disappointment that Track Spice was tweeting fake news, writing: “That’s misinformation, he and Sha’Carri are not dating! That was made clear to them when people started assuming that at the World Championships in Budapest last year. And Sha’Carri even said she was dating women.”

The next fan completely skipped over the news that Coleman was apparently changing his training club and was completely fascinated by the term “girlfriend” that was used in reference to Sha’Carri Richardson when talking about Coleman. He wrote: “The biggest news for me is that Coleman is dating Sha’Carri, lol.”

Another fan expressed confusion over the news. They questioned the validity of the rumors since Sha’Carri Richardson is known to be queer and has spoken openly about past relationships with women. They noted: “What? Sha’Carri is dating guys now?” This reflected the opinion of many who found the rumors surprising and contradictory to Richardson’s public demeanor.

One fan joked that Richardson and Coleman’s children will likely inherit the best sprinting genes in the world and will easily surpass Usain Bolt’s records.
