Sha'Carri Richardson received support from more celebs amid uproar over Olympics suspension for using marijuana
She recently became the fastest woman in the world after clocking a 10.86 100-meter sprint at the Olympic Trials, but Sha'Carri Richardson is suffering a setback. Sha'Carri Richardson, who qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in the women's 100 meters before testing positive for marijuana in a post-race drug test, has accepted a one-month ban.
A 30-day suspension that will keep her out of the next 100-meter race. However, she is clear to compete in the Olympics after July 27.
There’s still a chance that Richardson will be allowed to compete as a member of the women’s 4x100 relay team, though, because that race is set to happen after her suspension has been lifted. Marijuana usage is prohibited in-competition under the World Anti-Doping Agency rules.
