      • Bambi Love it is important to place 2nd and 3rd but 1st is what they should have focus on…if you had run in that race and place 1st how would you feel if they focused on the 2 place and ignored you who placed 1st??? But then again l realized that it wouldn’t matter to you. Stay safe stay blessed.

  1. I bet if she had came last,all the Shacarri haters would’ve wanted it highlighted big and bold without no questions on who won.Bottomline is all the daily negativity has placed her at the centre of attraction,so no matter if she places 1st,2nd,3rd or last,her name would always be the center of attraction.
