Elaine Thompson-Herah; Jamaican sprinter; was blocked on Instagram for posting footage of her own victory at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Thompson-Herah posted a video on Instagram showing her win in Tuesday’s women’s 200m race at the Tokyo Olympics; when she completed an unprecedented women’s ‘double-double’ in the 100m and 200m sprints at the Rio and Tokyo Games.
Thompson revealed on Twitter that she had been suspended because of rights issues.
She tweeted “I was blocked on Instagram for posting the Olympics because I did not own the right to do so. So see y’all in 2 days”.
The sprinters followers expressed disbelief at the action, questioning the logic in preventing an athlete from posting her own victory.
