Interesting that it's derived naturally from citrus fruits.

An athlete cold be totally fooled in to thinking it's nothing other than a vitamin injection.

Hence the comment "I basically put my trust in someone and I was let down.

I'm not saying that he didn't know it was a banned substance but I maybe the idea that it was a natural product made him think he could get away with it.

Aparently, Powell's coach is being detained in Italy, and his house is being raided by local LEA.

Trainer of Asafa, Sherone Simpson detained in Italy
PAUL A REID Observer Writer
Sunday, July 14, 2013 | 3:18 PM


MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica -- The Observer has been reliably informed that an associate of embattled Jamaican athletes Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson was in the last two hours detained by the Italian police and his room searched at the MVP base in Italy.
Observer sources said that the trainer is being questioned based on the fact that both athletes tested positive for banned substances they ingested from supplements he provided, without any declaration that illegal stimulants might have been in them.

The Canadian recently started working with the athletes and was allegedly brought in to help Powell get over a rash of injuries he has suffered the last few seasons.

Interestingly, it says you are allowed to administer adrenaline:

** Local administration (e.g. nasal, ophthalmologic) of Adrenaline or co-administration with local anaesthetic agents is not prohibited.

But it doesn't sound like you can inject it intravenously.

What do you mean, 'clean'? There hasn't been anything to date with Bolt, and yet people like you talk in this way.
Innocent until proven otherwise.

It's just ephedrine basically. Powell will use the equivalent of the cold-medicine excuse and get off with a slap on the wrist.

One strike and you're out. It's the only way to stop this. The athlete gets a hearing and they can protest but if the original finding is upheld then they can go find another way of making a living.

The athlete is responsible for what goes into their body. Plain and simple and final.

For the obvious cheater, yes, I woud tend to agree, however I do believe that cross-contamination exists in supplements (not saying that it must be the case here).

I don't know if I'm behind on this, but was Gay busted for oxilofine as well? It says on here http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/jul/15/tyson-gay-asafa-powell-oxilofrine unless The Guardian made an error.
