Allyson Felix wants fans to "rally around" embattled sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson after her spectacular fail at a recent track meet.

The Olympic gold medal track & field star showed support for Richardson after she finished dead last at the Prefontaine Classic 100 meter dash in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday.

Social media users dragged the 21-year-old sprinter, and rapper Nicki Minaj posted a meme of a broom.

Felix told Jimmy Kimmel Live! guest host Stephen A. Smith:

"I know that she's obviously been through so much and I hope that she's just supported. I hope people rally around her. I think just more than anything, for all athletes, there's so much that goes into it. We just, you know, give her the support that she needs."
