Brittney Griner has returned to the United States and is prepared to speak up.
The WNBA player, who was imprisoned in Russia for ten months, opened up about her ordeal on Instagram.
It feels great to be home, the 32-year-old said. Every step of the way over the previous ten months has been a challenge. She had to dig deep to preserve her faith, and it was the love of so many people that kept her going.
The basketball star had many individuals to thank, and she did so in her letter. Obviously, she expressed gratitude to her wife, Cherelle Griner, who never stopped believing in her safe return. Lindsay Kagawa Colas and Casey Wasserman, as well as her Russian legal team, were also honored.
She also expressed her profound gratitude to the Joe Biden administration.
She went on to express her worry for other Americans being kept hostage. She also urged all who helped bring her home to keep working to bring all Americans home, she added. Every family has the right to be entire.
She also expressed gratitude to the medical staff at Fort Sam Houston, a military post in San Antonio, for easing her return to the United States.
She also provided an update on her professional prospects. She also wants to be clear that she wants to play basketball for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury this season, and in doing so, she looks forward to being able to say ‘thank you’ in person to those of who lobbied, wrote, and posted for her, she said. “Love always, BG #42,” the basketball star signed her message.
