Controversy at the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, we dive into the controversy surrounding Olympic figure skater Kamila Valieva, who was allowed to compete despite a positive drug test for a performance enhancing drug. Al compares the story to that of Olympic track star Sha'Carri Richardson, who was not allowed to compete at the Tokyo Olympics due to a positive test for THC. Also, the Michigan State men's basketball team will try and get back to its winning ways tomorrow as they play host to Illinois. Listen to what head coach Tom Izzo had to say after yesterday's practice. That, and more!
