SHA’CARRI RICHARDSON TESTS POSITIVE FOR MARIJUANA, DISQUALIFIED FROM COMPETING IN OLYMPICS

NAYZE MEDIA

Sha’Carri Richardson was someone many people were saying would shake some things up at the Tokyo Olympics this month. Now, it’s looking like Ms. Richardson may not even be able to compete at all in this month’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, after testing positive for Marijuana.

The New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/), reported that the 21-year old, won the women’s 100-meter race at the U.S. track & Field trials in Oregon last month. That gave Richardson her spot at Tokyo, but the positive marijuana test automatically invalidates her result in the event. Richardson’s camp has not said if they will appeal the decision or not. It’s not even clear at this time how long Richardson’s suspension will be.

If Richardson is handed a one-month ban for the test result, and the ban time starts back when she tested positive at the Oregon trials, her suspension could be up before the Olympics begin on July 23rd. And even better for Richardson, the track & field events don’t begin until July 30th. So, there still may be a little light at the end of this darkness for Ms. Richardson.
