Biden Expresses Doubt Over Olympic Rules After Richardson Ban
(Bloomberg) -- President Joe Biden hinted at discontent with anti-doping rules after U.S. sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson was suspended for a positive marijuana test, keeping her out of the 100-meter race at the Tokyo Olympics.
“The rules are the rules and everybody knows of the rules going in,” Biden told reporters Saturday during a trip to Michigan. “Whether they should remain the rules is a different issue, but the rules are the rules.”
“I was really proud of the way she responded,” Biden said.
