Quote Of The Day
Steve Cram: “Paula has always wanted to be honest about this but she was taking advice from the IAAF and Wada, who told her not to make her details public … I think she is actually quite relieved to put her case forward. It’s not nice for her, but Paula is the last person who would want to transgress even the smallest rule in the sport. … Paula was an anti-doping pioneer, who demanded her blood was frozen years before anyone else. If she was in any way guilty, and she is not, how stupid would that be?”
Steve Magness: “If the science and external circumstances really showed that her test results did not show doping, why not hand it over to as many experts as possible, explain the situation and have them all determine it. Let the research dictate the results. … For someone who has been outspoken her whole career, it’s very disappointing that when the tables are turned she clams up. What this shows, is it’s not about the sport at all, it’s about image. If it’s about the betterment of the sport, and you know the results will come out eventually, you don’t threaten lawsuits, you go with openness.”
