Coming on the heels of US star sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson not landing roster for the US track and field team to compete at the Olympics in Tokyo following her testing positive for THC drug test which invalidated her win at the U.S. Olympic trials, the track star has landed an exciting new opportunity.
Vaping company Dr. Dabber which offers cannabis-based products, has asked the 21-year-old to be a spokesperson for the brand, offering a whopping $250,000 as spokesperson TMZ reports.
The company reportedly told the athlete: “Considering your talent and grace over these past weeks, we would love to offer you the opportunity to work with our team as a spokesperson for Dr. Dabber. This entails testing our award-winning dab rigs and vape pens as a resident ‘doctor.’”
TMZ reports details at the moment are still sketchy and the athlete is yet to accept the offer.
Richardson after being barred, released a statement.
“The attention that is on track now and was because of very very few names,” she said on Twitter. “So if that’s where fans support lay, you can’t be mad at that.”
Richardson is slated to run in August after her ban is lifted.“I’m looking forward to running fast and putting on a show,” she said.
