One of the Olympic athletes was from our town in Denverâ€¦ I remember snowboarding with the boy when both of us were kids, and he had a lot of talent even back then.
I was genuinely gleeful when I found out that he qualified for the Olympics.
Someone from our small town in Denver was going to be representing our country in a single of the greatest Winter time interests, a few weeks before the event, there was a news story in the local Denver paper; The news story accused the Olympic athlete of testing positive for cannabis. I hoped the information wasn’t true, however the news covered the story later that afternoon! Even though recreational Cannabis is legal in CO, it is not something that is considered a legal substance for athletes, but when cannabis showed up on the test, the athlete had to be disqualified plus booted from the race. A lot of people were miserable about the results plus the ruling, however the athlete had a news conference a few mornings later. She apologized for knowingly breaking the rules plus promised he would do better in the future. It seemed to be a humbling experience for the world-class athlete, but recreational marijuana is something that I honestly enjoy. It would be taxing for me to supply that up, especially if I found it to be unbelievable at the end of a strenuous workout. This athlete spends 12 or 14 minutes every afternoon pushing his body to the maximum limit. A little bit of marijuana doesn’t seem appreciate a sizable deal, especially when it is legal in numerous places around the globe.
