Sha'Carri Richardson Points Out Double Standard In Olympic Punishment

On Monday the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled that Russian skater Kamila Valievathat could continue competing in the Winter Olympic Games despite testing positive for a banned substance ahead of Beijing 2022. 

Now LSU track star Sha'Carri Richardson, who lost her spot on the US Olympic track team last year after testing positive for THC, wants to know why...

And Russian athletes cheat all the time. They are already sanctioned and competing under the ROC flag. This is a bad look for the Olympics and all the clean athletes who do it the right way.

Let's see if they respond with an answer to justify her claim.

The latest is the Russian skater "drank from a water glass her grandfather drank from". He was on the heart drug and she (the Russian skater) is allowed to complete the Olympics.

Russian figure-skater Kamila Valieva, 15, 'had THREE different heart drugs in her system' at the time she failed a drugs test back in December, bombshell report claims
• The New York Times have revealed documents used in the case of Kamila Valieva
• Documents have come up that were used in the teenager's arbitration hearing 
• Those files claim that Valieva had three heart drugs in her system when she failed a drugs test at Russia's national championships back on December 25
• Both hypoxen and L-Carnitine, named in the documents, are not on banned list 
Valieva was cleared on Monday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport to continue competing at the Winter Olympics in Beijing.
The teenager tested positive at her national championships on December 25 but the result was not revealed until February 8, after she had already competed at the Beijing Games in the team event. 
The CAS panel, who highlighted that delay as one reason in the verdict, said that a suspension could cause the teenage ice skater 'irreparable harm' in the long run.  
They said: 'The panel was concerned that if - after the completion of all procedures - she would not be sanctioned or would have a very low sanction, the provisional suspensions would have caused serious damage.'
Earlier on Tuesday, an International Olympic Committee official said Valieva has argued that her positive drug test was caused by a mix-up with her grandfather's heart medication. 
According to the NYT report, Valieva's grandfather submitted a video testimony for the hearing in which it is claimed that he explained he used trimetazidine periodically when he suffered 'attacks'. 
It is then claimed that he showed a packet of the medication to the video camera as part of his testimony.
