July 9 (Reuters) – The White Home will search a gathering with the world anti-doping physique about easing restrictions on athletes’ hashish use, a media report mentioned on Friday, after a constructive check for American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson made her ineligible for the Olympic staff.
The 21-year-old, who was seen as the highest contender for the 100 meters gold on the Tokyo Summer time Video games, in June acquired a one-month ban.
The Monetary Instances mentioned the White Home is in search of the assembly with the World Anti-Doping Company (WADA) by means of the U.S. Workplace of Nationwide Drug Management Coverage, which has a seat on the physique’s basis.
The White Home didn’t reply to a request for touch upon the report.
WADA mentioned it has not acquired a request for a gathering. WADA has overseen the banned substance checklist since 2004. Previous to that it was the accountability of the Worldwide Olympic Committee.
