  1. This an attempt to remove the drug policy so people who depend on HGH, hormones, etc for their manifested identity can get into other categories by eliminating testing. This is nothing more than the block to set up the run.

  2. This is Olympic and that rules stand to all drugs and no exception, nobody in the world would be able to manipulate this rule. Biggest mistake is she knows the responsibility of EVERY athlete that Olympic has RULES AND HAS TO BE ABIDE, SHE BROKE THAT RULES AND SHE KNOW THE CONSEQUENCES OF BREAKING IT. THIS IS A LESSON LEARNED TO ALL ATHLETES. I SAW HER QUALIFYING RUN, BUT SURPRISE I NEVER SEEN HER RUN IN ANY COMPETITION, SO I SEARCH TO FIND OUT WHY? NOW I KNOW WHY.
    ALL THIS EXCUSES I'M LISTENING FROM THIS VIDEO. OLYMPICS ARE VERY STRICT ON THIS DOPING OR DRUG RULES. THATS WHY ALL ATHLETES GOT TO BE TESTED BEFORE THEY COMPETE. EXCUSES ARE NOT GOING TO WORK IN THIS OLYMPIC COMPETITION.

  3. the president say rules are rules he's proud of her? if thats so he could have put in a plea for her to be able to compete she broke no laws and shouldnt be treated like a fucking criminal and be black balled just because of a controversal rule how the hell can you smoke legally in one state and get arrested in another state for doing the same thing?. you cant have it both ways when you are effected people lives its good chuck shumer.is trying to pass a common since bill thru the house making marajuana legal in every state. just look how a portion of the u s track team has performed in the oylmpics its been nothing short but disgraceful the men couldn't even qaulify in the 4 100 meters relay no focus no energy no leadership. at least sha carri richardson has confidence fire and energy and beleives in herself.

  4. I wonder if America would care if another Athletes got in the same trouble weed is illegal in Japan where the olympic is being held maybe when it returns to the Usa there will be no testing at all or some will get a pass if they have the potential of getting a gold
    That drug didnt got there to punish her its there to punish every Athelete who joins the That Arena
    Athletic also has a Rule Book

  5. I understand the rule, the Olympic village would be up in smoke but allowing a man to compete for an Olympic medal in a woman's event (weight lifting of all things!) is just wrong on so many levels, what about all the drugs that individual took, this world is insane to me now.

  6. Im a black man … And i agree she should be suspended .. Its bad enough our people are endlessly sterotyped and she goes out there with the ability to uplift our young ladies and she does this.. Then to make matters worse she uses her mother's death as a excuse. You have to be pretty naive to think that was the first time she got high. Yes weed doesn't kill you but its a addictive drug that causes short term memory lose and makes you terribly lazy and complacent . i just hope this talented young lady gets back on her feet and does right from now on

  7. It’s funny how when people do something really stupid and then say don’t judge me. Look, if my job says I couldn’t smoke weed you best believe I wouldn’t be smoking weed.

  8. Yeah she knew the outdated rules.

    Trump supporters everywhere.
    I've come to realize that this whole Trump thing and right-wing conservatives, it's not all about white supremacy but it's more about keeping everyone else down.
    And now that everyone that they try to keep down is rising and we're almost outnumbering all these white people they're getting scared because they're scared of losing their privilege that they claim they don't have.
    So it's not really about white supremacy but it's about not letting other people get up and then claiming that they don't have anything to get up from in the first place and that their lives are fine and they all have the same starting point as the rest of us.
    Which is a completely false narrative.
    But the funny thing is I have family members and some close friends that are Trump supporters and all he's done is divide us.
    Because it's not simply about agreeing to disagree.
    I can meet you in the middle regarding racism or being xenophobic or being sexist etc.
    I wont move an inch on those things I'm sorry. But I hope we can agree to disagree 🤣
    Seriously though trumpers, take a look within and ask yourself if what you're doing and the things you're supporting are really the right thing to do. Is this really the America you want?

  9. "yeah she knew the rules"
    Is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.
    Throughout history there have been so many rules that are no longer here. Just because "rules are rules" does not mean the rules are right.
    But the majority of you are Trump supporting losers who just want everything to fit in your nice little agenda.
    But because she's black and she smokes weed you don't care about anything else that she's done.
    I understand she messed up she understands she messed up but that doesn't mean the rules are right.
