Brittney Griner’s agent, Lindsay Colas, thanked the Biden administration and many others involved in Griner’s release in an emailed statement Thursday afternoon.
“It’s through hardship that character is revealed, and over the last nine months, we have seen the best of so many,” the statement read. “At the top of that list are BG and President Biden. Throughout this ordeal, BG has carried herself with courage, grace and grit; and President Biden made us a promise, and then kept his word and did what was necessary to bring her home. We are forever grateful for his follow-through on that commitment.”
