    Richardson tested positive for marijuana, which is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency and United States Anti-Doping Agency in-competition period. The threshold for an athlete to have THC in their system in competition without it causing a positive test is 150 nanograms per milliliter.

    Now - what's "in competition period"? Competition period shall in principle be the period commencing just before midnight (at 11:59 p.m.) on the day before a Competition in which the Athlete is scheduled to participate until the end of the Competition and the Sample.

    This sets up a Huge Money Race after the Games. Hopefully, the ppl/Org that can make it happen, don’t screw this one up.

    Apparently she had been delivered the news of her birth mom passing.

    I have been most impressed with Biden's comment regarding how well Sha'Carri has handled herself.

    No one including the networks talk about the why.

    What is another 4 years anywayzzz.........

    Unite... organize and become invested in the greater good for all athletes....this is what the lovely sport of track needs and requires.....

    Let's look at tennis and pro sports that have been around the block with their lawyers.

    Open the dialogue up.

    Does this ban make any sense?

    According to the current rules the powers that be believe this makes sense.

    If ever there were a better moment in time to make these changes it would be in the world of ALL LIVES MATTER. Imagine that... Even athletes matter and they can be other colors and come from other countries including the countries that may not hold TV contracts.

    Ms.Sha' Carri broke a rule and what I want to know is why no one gives a rats butt why she did what she did and what is the track world gunna do about it.

    Pretty sure the governing bodies don't care. Plenty of others to fill Ms. Carri's spot for now and in four years everyone will forget about this ( actually it will take about another 4 seconds for this to blow over)

    Does anyone of note have the balls to act or do we all collectively sit by and discuss the smoke and fallout of another person's life?

    Another question.

    Carl Lewis is without any doubt an amazing athlete.

    Ben Johnson beat his sorry ass in 1988.

    Canada got beat by USA. Ben did not get beat by anyone in that race.

    The politics win again in Track and Field.

    If I was not Canadian I would bet money on my not writing any of this as I would have zero vested interest in doing so. The official results would have been on my side.

    Why does one want to win a gold medal when other's in the race are disqualified for same or similar reasons they too have been apart of in the past? With all these grey lines post 1988, with so little change for anyone who is keeping score who is the fastest? ( I think it depends on who the score keeper is if I am correct?)

    Big money race after the Olympics? No one cares expect for the niche group who actually follows track.

    Zurich was the meet to win because the key people in the world outside of the the drama and politics at the Olympics all got invited.

    TRACK People need to dictate what track people need and want and they need the guidance of educated law makers with an understanding of history beyond a day or week or month or year.

    If details don't matter than open everything up and make it a true circus where everyone gets to enter.

    It was a stupid move due to an extreme situation. Yes, she is going through a lot.

    Why are people in the sport treated as subhumans?

    Why are the athletes of note not demanding different rules?

    Why do the tennis stars get banned peanut amounts of money and banned a game maybe and then it all goes away never to be discussed again? It's because the rules are different and track rules can also be different.

    The price of all of this does not fit the crime.
