Proof Passing A Drug Test Doesn't Mean Everything
“If I would have filed for a TUE, then there would be no sanction, no punishment – or if I would not have competed. … But it was just crazy to me because I passed two drug tests and then I failed one.”
– Three-time USA 200m champion Wallace Spearmon talking in the wake of his 3-month drug ban after he tested positive for Methylprednisolone (a corticosteroid). The drug is only banned in competition, so he passed his out-of-competition drug test. Then he passed his in-competition test at USAs (June 29th) before failing one on July 6th.
