Brittney Yevette Griner is an American professional basketball player for the Phoenix Mercury of the Women’s National Basketball Association. She played college basketball for the Baylor Lady Bears in Waco, Texas. She is the only NCAA basketball player to both score 2,000 points and block 500 shots.
Brittney Griner left a courtroom after a hearing, in Khimki just outside Moscow, May 13, 2022. Griner, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, was detained at the Moscow airport in February after vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis were allegedly found in her luggage, which could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
US classifies Griner as wrongfully detained in Russia. Trevor Reed, the American veteran who spent nearly three years detained in Russia before being released in April in a prisoner swap, called upon legislators and the White House Monday to work faster toward freeing American basketball star Brittney Griner.
