Sha’Carri Richardson questioned on Monday how Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva has been allowed to compete in the Beijing Olympics even amid a doping charge — a similar offense that prevented Richardson from competing in the recent Tokyo Summer Olympics.
Richardson, 21, had been a popular athlete leading up to the Tokyo Games held last summer. However, she was given a one-month ban for testing positive for cannabis, which saw her banned from participating in the games.She later said that she took the cannabis while mourning the death of her mother.On Monday, Valieva, 15, was given the go-ahead by sport’s highest court to continue to participate in the games.
However, there will not be a medals ceremony this week in her competition, the women’s singles, if she finishes in the top three spots until a complete investigation into the doping is complete.Valieva tested positive for the banned angina drug trimetazidine, which may boost performance, BuzzFeed News reports.In a tweet on Monday, Richardson asked, “Can we get a solid answer on the difference of [Valieva's] situation and mines?”She added, “My mother died and I can't run and was also favored to place top 3.
