  10. CLICK PLAY BELOW TO HEAR THE KRAMER KOMMENTARY There is no backing down from Gwen Berry even as the criticism poured in this week over her decision to turn her back on the podium while the national anthem played at U.S. Olympic track and field trials. Berry on Wednesday responded to a tweet demanding her to respect the flag and the national anthem. The Olympian hammer thrower said her goal is just to compete and bring home gold for the U.S. Her demonstrations have led to calls from conservative voices for her to step aside. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas., and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Sen., have been among the loudest voices. Berry has received support from many on social media, including Olympic legend Michael Johnson. Berry made the Olympic team as a hammer thrower after finishing third last weekend at the trials behind DeAnna Price and Brooke Anderson. She drew scrutiny after she turned her back during the national anthem. She then draped a shirt with the world "ACTIVIST ATHLETE" over her head as "The Star-Spangled Banner" played. Amid scrutiny and boisterous claims she shouldn’t be representing the U.S. in the Games, Berry fired back in an interview with the Black News Channel on Tuesday. "I never said that I didn't want to go to the Olympic Games, that's why I competed and got third and made the team," Berry said "I never said that I hated the country. I never said that. All I said was I respect my people enough to not stand for or acknowledge something that disrespects them. I love my people. Point blank, period." On her decision to turn away on Saturday, she said at the time she was upset with the timing of the anthem. "They had enough opportunities to play the national anthem before we got up there," Berry said, according to The New York Post. "I was thinking about what I should do. Eventually I stayed there and I swayed, I put my shirt over my head. It was real disrespectful." Berry claimed she was told that the anthem would be played before she took the podium. They said they were going to play it before we walked out, then they played it when we were out there … But I don't really want to talk about the anthem because that's not important. The anthem doesn't speak for me. It never has." "My purpose and my mission is bigger than sports," she continued. "I'm here to represent those ... who died due to systemic racism. That's the important part. That's why I'm going. That's why I'm here toda A spokesperson for USA Track and Field disputed Berry’s claim that it was a set up. Berry was previously sanctioned by the U.S. Olympic committee after raising her fist during the national anthem at the 2019 Pan-Am Games. The Kramer Show · Should Gwen Berry continue or step down?

  13. American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, a medal favorite in the 100-meter dash at the upcoming Olympics, failed a drug test and likely won't be able to run at the Tokyo Games, according to multiple reports Thursday night. Richardson reportedly tested positive for cannabis, or marijuana, at U.S. Olympic Trials, where she won the 100. Richardson would be disqualified, and her place in the 100 handed to the fourth-place finisher at trials, Jenna Prandini. Gabby Thomas, who finished fifth, would become the alternate. It's unclear whether Richardson could appeal and still compete in Tokyo, or whether USA Track & Field might consider naming her to a relay team. The Jamaica Gleaner first reported news of Richardson's positive test. The Cincinnati Enquirer, Reuters and the New York Times later reported that the banned substance was marijuana. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) considers cannabis a “substance of abuse.” All cannabis-based products except for cannabidiol, or CBD, are on WADA's 2021 Prohibited List and banned “in-competition." The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee, and USA Track and Field adhere to WADA's code. The maximum punishment for a positive test is a years-long suspension. According to USADA, “if an athlete ... establishes that their use of the substance occurred out of competition and was unrelated to sport performance, the athlete will receive a three-month sanction. If the athlete satisfactorily completes a Substance of Abuse treatment program approved by USADA, the sanction may be further reduced to one month.” A one-month suspension, if backdated to the day of the positive test, would see Richardson reinstated in time for the women's 100-meter heats in Tokyo on July 30. But she'd be retroactively disqualified from U.S. trials, and therefore unable to compete at the Olympics. USATF rules require it to send the top three finishers at trials. The New York Times reported that other competitors in the race had been notified about Richardson's failed test, and of revised results. Richardson sent out a cryptic tweet earlier on Thursday. Hours later, she did not appear on the entry list for a Diamond League meet in Stockholm, where she was scheduled to compete. Neither Richardson's agent, USA Track and Field, WADA nor USADA responded to emails and texts requesting comment. Richardson, 21, had been widely considered a potential breakout star at the Olympics. She won the 100 at trials in 10.86 seconds. The former LSU star turned pro after her first season with the Tigers, but not before she won the NCAA title and set a record in the 100 after running it in just 10.75 seconds. Just before trials in April, Richardson ran the sixth-fastest time in the history of the event, a personal best of 10.72. Only one other person in the world — Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price — has recorded a faster 100 time this year. Fraser-Price, who ran it in 10.63 seconds, is a two-time gold medalist in the event. Their showdown was one of the most anticipated races at the Olympics, which begin July 23.

  15. I'd also like to add, most people don't care about what Facebook does - because everyone has turned in to a narcissistic dolt. So as long as you have it to post the pics of your food, selfies and where you went today, you don't care.
