RE: Breaking: Olympic 100h Champ Brianna Rollins gets 12-month ban for 3 whereabouts violations
After reading the decision Rojo linked, let me summarize what happened:

She missed three scheduled drug tests due to travel. She does not dispute two of them, but there is some disagreement about the third.

Apparently USADA maintains an online system where you enter your scheduled whereabouts. You can update this by sending emails or entering it directly in the online system. Rollins originally scheduled April 27 as a day she would be home in California. She later updated her April 27 whereabouts to be Iowa for the Drake Relays. So was not expecting them to show up in California on April 27 because she had market it as a "travel to Iowa day". However, the system allows for athletes to list multiple locations on the same day. You can start the day in California and end it in Iowa, just as long as you specify where you'll be between 7 am and 8 am.

So that's it. The entire dispute hangs on that misunderstanding. The report even says that Rollins passed a drug test on May 3 (6 days after the April 27 missed test).
