Sha'Carri Richardson left off US relay squad

After testing positive for marijuana. USATF said it could not justify leaving someone off the Olympic team who had followed the rules in order to include her. But they also asked WADA to remove weed from the banned substances list.

Think it is a good decision. Add another projected gold medal subtracted from USA gold medals projection.

They might still be able to beat the Jamaicans and everyone else with the B team.

Yeah, it is possible. I just felt 100% sure with Richardson. I fear Shelly Ann Fraser-Price’s anchor leg for Jamaica and felt better with Sha’Carri running the anchor leg for us. But USA did win in Rio with Shelly Ann running the anchor leg and USA had a big lead before the anchor leg and it didn’t matter. Hopefully that is what happens in a few weeks.
