Sha’Carri Richardson to Miss Olympic 100-Meter Race After Marijuana Test



American champion Sha’Carri Richardson cannot run in the Olympic 100-meter race after testing positive for a chemical found in marijuana. She smoked marijuana as a way of coping with her mother’s recent death.

She won the 100 at Olympic trials in 10.86 seconds on June 19.
She tested positive at the Olympic trials and so her result is erased.
Fourth-place finisher Jenna Prandini is expected to get Richardson’s spot in the 100.

She accepted a 30-day suspension that ends July 27, which would be in time to run in the women’s relays.
Her three-month sanction was reduced to one month because she participated in a counseling program.
