On Monday, WNBA All-Star Brittney Griner, who has been detained in Russia for more than four months on drug charges, made a direct appeal to US President Joe Biden for her freedom in a letter passed through her representatives, via OutKick:

“I’m terrified I might be here forever,” she wrote in an excerpt, per ESPN. “I realize you are dealing with so much, but please don’t forget about me and the other detainees … Please do all you can to bring us home.”
