US sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson suspended from Olympic team after positive marijuana test

US track sensation Sha’Carri Richardson, who punched her ticker to the Tokyo Games after winning the women’s 100-meter race last month, has been suspended from the Olympic team after testing positive for THC, the chemical in marijuana, her lawyer said.

According to NBC News, Richardson failed a drug test following her win at the US Olympic Track and Field trials in Oregon on June 19.

Richardson is now prohibited from competing in the 100-meter race, but could possibly compete in another event, reported NBC. According to the World Anti-Doping Agency, THC is banned during competition.

It’s unclear if Richardson will appeal the drug test results.

On Thursday, seemingly in response to her suspension, Richardson tweeted, “I am human.”

She ran the 100 meters in 10.86 seconds, one of her five runs under 11 seconds this season, sparking hopes that the U.S. might win its first gold medal in the women’s race since Gail Devers in 1996, reported NBC.
