Sha’Carri Richardson To Miss Olympics ENTIRELY After NOT Being Picked For Relay Team

Published: Tuesday 6th Jul 2021 by Sam

In news just in, it has been announced US athlete Sha’Carri Richardson will miss the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo in its entirety.

Full story below…

As reported, the sprinting sensation raced atop headlines after reports she accepted a one-month suspension from the forthcoming Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for marijuana use.

Richardson revealed that she ate an edible after learning from a reporter that her mother had passed.

The timing of her ban meant she was benched for singles competition. However, she was considered a shoo-in for the US female relay team.

That wasn’t to be.

Because moments ago, U.S.A. Track and Field confirmed she wasn’t picked for the team.

Many, including Richardson were shocked, but the reason seems more rooted in protocol than punishment.

Per the organization, coaches had already picked the relay team and informed those selected of their status — prior to Richardson’s disqualification.

Coaches then whittled down the next six alternatives for the 100-meter race.

Ultimately, they felt it would be unfair to take away a spot from one of the runners picked and hand it to Richardson just because it was the sole way to have her onboard the team. There also isn’t a procedure in place to facilitate that type of substitution.

U.S.A. Track and Field stressed sympathy and cited the complication of Richardson’s case as being an example of why a re-evaluation of antidoping rules on marijuana use is needed. But ultimately, their hands are tied.

An official statement read:

“All U.S.A.T.F. athletes are equally aware of and must adhere to the current antidoping code, and our credibility as the national governing body would be lost if rules were only enforced under certain circumstances. So while our heartfelt understanding lies with Sha’Carri, we must also maintain fairness for all of the athletes who attempted to realize their dreams by securing a place on the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team.”

21-year-old Richardson is the fastest female sprinter in the USA.

    And just like that she’s done

    If she were smart, she will quickly get the reality show on Zeus network or BET.
    Strike while the iron is still semi-hot

    Maybe dancing with the stars or the masked singer.

      Why do you get so happy by someone’s downfall?

      • Gag July 6, 2021

        I know so weird but this Clarkson person has built so much bad karma from the way they act on here. Also why are you saying she should go to Zeus or BET? So disingenuous

      Well, unlike u fat whale 🐳, she can RUN 💅🏿

  3. Tori July 6, 2021

    This while situation is old and boring to me. She did something they asked everyone, including her not to do and she got disqualified. That’s where it starts and stop. You’re not exempt because you gained popularity. I’m ready for this story to die out, there’s no reason to drag this on.

    • Misha July 6, 2021

      Well said

    It’s so foolish that all of this is happening because of a little weed. Compare how lenient the US Olympics staff has been to the male (mostly white) Swimming team’s erratic and drug-induced behavior in the past.

    However I can’t help but think of how anti-q**** she has been in the past and how she’s getting a taste of that treatment. Does your karma dish taste good sis?

      Rules are rules.

    • Tori July 6, 2021

      This has nothing to do with her stance on the lifestyle of the LGBTQ community, this is not karma. That’s her personal veiw, as well as more than half of the world. Neither is this about how lenient the US rules are since she was competing in Tokyo. She broke the rules and they’re weren’t having it. If they took it more seriously than the US team’s past drug problems, that says more about the US problems.

      • Slick July 6, 2021

        Well put.

      • Paulo July 6, 2021

        hmm are you sure of what you’re talking about? the decision to not pick her up to the relay team has nothing to do with Tokyo or the International Olympics Committee. in fact, even the initial decision was taken by the local US committee. it was purely domestical. they could have been lenient to rising talent just like they have been with Michael Phelps’ drugged up ass more than once and with Ryan Lochte after the Rio 2016 disaster. and yes it is karma that she has failed to embrace her fellow queerfolk in times of public scrutiny and now it’s her turn to face the same type of scrutiny. as far as your ASSumption that more than half the world is as backwards… that’s all it is, an assumption

    She wasn’t going to win anyway. The GOAT Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the fastest in the world this year and was always the favourite whether Richardson was at the Olympics or not.

    See, when you do clownery, the clown comes back to bite 🤡

  8. Yep July 7, 2021

    You break the rules this is what happens. Sure it’s not a harmful drug or anything, but it’s literally in the contract. No judgment that she smoked, at all. Smoke if you want! But you can’t expect someone to break a rule that’s acknowledged and agreed upon before starting your journey, only to get mad when you get caught breaking the rule. It’s really simple. I’m sure she will branch out and get other stuff going on for her.

    • Meena July 7, 2021

      She didn’t smoke it, she ate an edible.

  9. Fancy BISH (FCK Maristench, SEWER QUEEN, Danzou The Fool & Clarksdump 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 July 7, 2021

    A bad week to be a black athlete.
