For sale for a gun dealer

After arriving in the US on Friday morning, Brittney Griner was taken to the military base for a medical examination. In February, the 32-year-old American star, arrested in Russia on charges of illegal drug trafficking, was released from a Russian prison in exchange for 55-year-old arms dealer Victor Butt, who was serving a 25-year sentence in an American prison. They were exchanged at the airport in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and since then the player has not made any public statement.

Ms. Colas said the training should not be interpreted as a sign that the Olympic champion has made a decision about whether or not to resume her career with Phoenix’s Mercury, the WNBA’s North American Championship, or US women’s basketball. “If he wants to play, it will be his job to announce it– said his agent. “He has holidays to relax and decide what to do next without any pressure“, he added. “He is doing very, very well. He seems to have endured it incredibly“.

According to Ms. Colas, the player, who could make an announcement this week, has no plans to leave the base where he is with his wife, Sherrell. “There is currently no timetable for his returnHe added, saying that hereintegrating into a world that has changed for him“. “From a purely security point of view, he won’t be able to travel around the world like he used to. It’s not a spell he asked for, but I think he’ll try to put his fame to good use.»
