She'll probably get caught now like a lot of Africans who switch to European nations. They're not used to actually being tested.

This is interesting.

Any source?

Too bad this board doesn't actually talk about running anymore, so nobody comments.

Aregawi has been living and training in Sweden for several years. She is married to a swedish citizen.

Doesn't matter. Until she actually ran for Sweden, she wouldn't be subject to Swedish anti-doping protocol.

Up until now, she would be subject to Ethiopian protocol which consists of the IAAF turning up once in a blue moon and doing their best not to catch anyone.

Mr Trollism, ur name says it all. i think you are either confused about ur facts or u r one of those who is immersed in streotyping in this matter. Can you mention one african athlete who switched nationality as you said and got caught in drug issue?? drug in athletics is most common in european and us sprinters and other athletes and it is not something that is associated with african athlets. please read and digest facts, before smearing dirt. All athletes go through a rigorous dopping test in all major competitions.

Lol, exhuming this corpse of a thread to refute it, is doing more harm than just leaving it where nobody would ever see it again. Don't you think?

callous and jeolousy noted here!! ppl just be courteous here, athletes win because they are good in what they do where ever it is they come from; and they deserve that. No need to turn green because of that!! :))
