Quote Of The Day
“In the case of meldonium, there is currently a lack of clear scientific information on excretion times. For this reason, a hearing panel might justifiably find (unless there is specific evidence to the contrary) that an athlete who has established on the balance of probabilities that he or she ingested meldonium before 1 January 2016 could not reasonably have known or suspected that the meldonium would still be present in his or her body on or after 1 January 2016. In these circumstances, WADA considers that there may be grounds for no fault or negligence on the part of the athlete.”
– WADA statement softening its stance on the recently banned drug, meldonium, and admitting that it is unclear how long it takes to leave the body. New guidelines will allow for trace amounts of the drug in tests after January 1, 2016, giving many athletes a free pass, but it is not yet clear which athletes this will affect. *Discuss
