Subject: RE: Major drug bust from Jamaican trials in 100 meters
Body: I didn't see this thread earlier so I opened a new one.
In any case, the post I made with all the info is here. It's likely Steve Mullings and it's rather strange that Tyson pulled out of the US trials around the same time that this test was done (and Mulling's summarily failed).
A Jamaican athlete, with less than three weeks to go before the 13th IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, has tested positive, this according to information reaching trackalerts.com.
A well-placed source told trackalerts.com that the test on the athlete was carried out at the Jamaican trials, held June 23-26.
It was also said that the athlete was only informed about the result on Monday. The athlete in question has competed since trials.
Patricia Charles-Freeman, executive director of JADCO, the body which was responsible for carrying out the drug testing locally, could not be reached for a comment while the JAAA doesn’t comment on drug issues.
The athlete is a sprinter, the athlete was expected to represent Jamaica in Daegu, the athlete is US-based and has previously failed a drug test. This being his second offense would effectively end his career. He was expected to represent the country in 2 events in Daegu.
Now knowing all of that, it's pretty safe to say we know who this individual is. It also doesn't help allay suspicions that there was a significant correlation in the dates of the Jamaican National Trials and the US national trials where a certain individual pulled out injured. Whilst I'm not one to make accusations, it's fairly obvious that such "coincidences" are rare and warrant further investigation.
What say you? Sprint Geezer? Anyone?
