Top female boxer Claressa Shields gave her perspective from an Olympian’s point of view and wrote,
“Being an olympic athlete comes with a lot of sacrifice! Time with family, holidays, relationships, diets, and even how you party. If marijuana can enhance your performance in sports you should not do it. I’m saddened for Richardson I hope she learns from this & bounce back”“Also I hope she surrounds herself with more like minded people. Those you can encourage her to stay on a free marijuana path & get what is hers. She had the potential to be an olympic champ. Still does.”
