Olympic medalist and ever-so talented WNBA player Brittney Griner has broken her silence after being released from Russian prison.
Back To Hoops For Brittney Griner
Griner eyes a return to the basketball court after being released from Russian prison last week. The basketball player states that we can expect to see her back in action with the Phoenix Mercury in the upcoming WNBA season.
Special Thanks To The U.S President
In a statement posted on her account, Brittney Griner made sure to let her gratitude to President Joe Biden be known. Biden was pivotal in negotiating a prisoner swap with Russia to ensure that Griner would make it back home.
Griner was detained by Russia after cannabis oil was found in her luggage at the Moscow Airport earlier this year. She was later sentenced to nine years in prison. Griner slowly became a political tool for Russia. Biden’s USA agreed to a prisoner swap and released Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout. Griner was soon back on home soil.
No wonder she added in her note how “It feels so good to be home!”
Griner’s Work Isn’t Over Yet
Brittney Griner beautifully penned down how the love and support of so many kept her going through the darkest times in prison. She thanked everyone for their help and support and made it a priority to say thank you in person.
Griner’s attention now shifts to US Marine Paul Whelan. She believes that “every family deserves to be whole.” Consequently, Griner aims to help bring back Whelan and other Americans who have been detained in Russia.
