Jailed WNBA basketball player Brittney Griner can contact her fellow professionals in the league via letter or e-mail, her colleagues have confirmed.
Griner has already passed 100 days in Russian custody after vape cartridges containing cannabis oil were found in her luggage at an airport near Moscow.
And while her wife Cherelle urges US officials as high as President Joe Biden to step in and grant her freedom, Griner has been able to reply to some of the hundreds of emails that EPSN say have been sent to an account that her agent set up for the cause.
“When she responded to my second letter, it blew me away,” said Los Angeles Sparks star Zahui B. “I was like, ‘She responded!!’ In my third letter, I was like, ‘Hey best friend, we are officially best friends now.”’
Zahui B., who heard from Griner last week, added that Griner jokes in her letters.
