  1. How about, just let her live her life!!! You are being obsessive about shacari. she’s probably living rent free in your head.

  2. go bri bri. Jamaica produce champions to the sport not winners of a one race. In time your championship will be manifested.

  3. Shacarri ain’t nobody to be face off with smh
    When are they going to u understand that sha’cant run periodt 🤦🏽‍♀️

    • @drsexxyann my thoughts exactly, she’s done nothing to prove herself to be compared to our ladies so she’s not facing off with a soul. A race is being ran and she’s in there just like the 6/7 other ladies, mention them too or don’t mention her at all cause it’s not adding up
