Jereem Richards (born 13 January 1994) is a Trinidadian male track and field sprinter from who specializes in the 400 metres. He was part of the Trinidad and Tobago team that won the bronze medal in the 4×400 m relay at the 2012 IAAF World Indoor Championships.
Richards won bronze in the 200m at the 2017 IAAF World Championships. Ramil Guliyev took the men's 200m title in 20.09 to deny Wayde Van Niekerk's ambition of completing a 200/400 double in London.
Silver went to Van Niekerk by a margin of just one thousandth of a second. He clocked 20.106 to the 20.107 achieved by 23-year-old Jereem Richards of Trinidad and Tobago.
Richards complained that his race had been undermined when he slipped coming out of his blocks. "I tried my best not to let it affect me too much," he said. "At the turn I wasn't in contention really, so to get a medal from there is a great achievement."
Numerous observers in the sport, including Trinidad and Tobago's 1997 world 200m champion Ato Boldon, had said this would be an "open" final - but while Guliyev, who won at the European Athletics Team Championships in Lille in June, was recognised as a medal threat he was not widely seen as the favourite for gold.
