WNBA star Brittney Griner has begun serving her nine-year sentence for drug possession at a Russian penal colony, her lawyers and agent confirmed yesterday.

Griner was transferred recently to a penal colony in Mordovia, about 350 kilometers (210 miles) east of Moscow. That transfer coming after a Russian court last month rejected an appeal of her sentence.
