1) You being "around the competitive scene of running in Australia for awhile" has no bearing on anything except that you have lived there for "awhile".
2) Do you NOT think that Mourhit, Saidi-Seif and Guerni (all busted and served suspensions in the last few years) weren't also training "bloody hard" and "has as great work ethics"?
When did Guerni ever fail a test? I'm not trying to be smart here or anything, you may well be right, but I'm sure he's never failed a test has he? He's always been on the start line for the major champs and not missed a season for years that I can think of.[/quote]
My mistake and it was a big one. I was somehow under the impression that he had tested positive for Nandrolone around 2001 and after researching this I was CLEARLY WRONG.
First, I apologize to Mr. Said-Guerni for using him as an example of behavior that HE WAS NOT GUILTY OF. Second, I apologize for writing something that was not correct. I was "sure" of it when I wrote it, but I was clearly wrong. After researching it, my only guess is that my memory mixed up Djabir Saïd-Guerni and Andrea Longo. They run the same event and in the same time-frame and about at the same level.
