Sha’Carri Richardson had a picture-perfect start to her Olympic trials.

The 21-year-old American sprinter ran a blistering 10.84 in the 100m to capture her heat’s win on Friday.

After the race, Richardson told media her shoelaces were actually untied during the sprint, adding, “I’ll be sure to lace them up and tuck them for the next rounds to come.”

Richardson will be the heavy favorite in her upcoming 100m races, with or without tied laces.
