Women’s basketball star Brittney Griner is opening up about her painful 10 months spent in a Russian prison after being arrested on drug charges in 2022. During an interview on ABC yesterday, the Olympic gold medalist described the appalling conditions.

After a rough stay in an initial facility, she was sent to an even worse penal colony where she says spiders infested her hair.

“I had to do what I had to do to survive,” Griner said.
