Are there any women track stars with only one last name anymore?

A clarification from the article is needed. Richardson is not banned due to doping, that implies cheating. She is band due to having smoked marijuana

If the Beach Volley female athletes wearing bikini bottoms is an issue, why is it ok for thr female track athletes to wear them?

I can't understand why the athletes don't just wear the uniforms they have been wearing their whole careers.

Nothing taken away from the achievement, but why the minimalist clothing? Does seem that required uniform, has nothing to do with performance, again great job athlete. I’d shake your hand but I can’t catch up.

Required uniform absolutely has to do with performance, particularly in track and field and swimming. There are strict rules about the design and types of material that can be used. Same as in winter sports. Hence, the minimalist clothing in the summer.

Ok, you can believe that.I’m not even going to go there. hope a mixture of common sense and modern materials might find their way into the sexually charged uniform rules.
