Surely they must have caught all the bad apples now?
Well, they just about caught Burgin.. last lifeline.
Lol. No surprise there. But, rojo, shouldn't you be arguing that AIU/AKAD/WADA (and later CAS and SFT) got it wrong, and they weren't really doping?
On that note, did Tygart finally respond to you, telling you what he really thinks about Shelburrito?

There has been a direct correlation between advanced drug testing technology and DECREASED performances by the Kenyans. Ethiopia will follow the same trend soon. It's looking like Kenya might have been equally bad as Russia.
You are setting up a defense fund for them, correct? Or is that only for girls who look like Shelby?
Why is anyone still interested in what Kenyans are doing? A modern Ma's army.
Headline asks "Doping?" and the article says "unconfirmed reports disclosed that the two might have flagged (sic) for an anti-doping test".
Quality journalism at its finest.
For a ship that has sailed, it keeps coming back into port.
The WADA Code allowed the AIU to make statistical arguments about a national population rarely testing positive from pork during normal times which may not be applicable in exceptional cases, i.e. global supply issues during a pandemic, and for that matter, may not be wholly truthful or factual.
Shelby claimed that pork ingestion was the most likely source, and this claim remains essentially undisputed by the World Athletics, by the AIU, by the CAS and by the Swiss Courts. The CAS simply ruled that she couldn't prove the source to the burden specified by the WADA Code. No alternative source was found to be more likely.
Tygart is right that the WADA Code railroads athletes to 4-year bans, by removing any benefit of the doubt and treating athletes who do not know how they tested positive the same as intentional cheaters.
Very poor comparison. Doping in Kenya is of a different kind.
Unfortunate name. I’m just waiting to see how Letsrun will class her a “top Kenyan”.
You're right - it isn't "caterpillar juice"; something more potent. But definitely still doping.
Casual obsever pressed a button, for the same old bs from rekrunner.
Pork ingestion wasn't the most likely source; it was ruled as being against the balance of probability. Expert estimates put it as bring close to zero. Houlihan couldn't produce convincing evidence for her claim so she was deemed to have committed an intentional violation. An excellent result for those opposed to doping.
Unlike Tygart, we are uninterested in how athletes test positive; that they test positive is the only interesting fact. They have the right to present a defence. If it doesn't cut it they have doped. Good.
It should say how their positive test inexplicably turn up in a bottle in a lab.
How about the Ethopians? When are they going to start catching them?
Yesterday I was downvoted on a other thread just for saying that it will be the comeback of Africa with the new U20 WC. Also for just posting a news of the selection of a country.
Some people in this have their heart dark of hatred.
Your African you will have them until your grave.
See the latest ISF (April 2022) in Slovakia, how some scholar of some countries dominated the Cross Country.
Don't tell me they are doping in schools...
What decreased performances? Kenya has never been this successful in marathons. And if you're talking about Eugene, Kenya has performed worse in 2012 and between 2004 and 2009.
dunno ab kenya but in american schools they're doping like crazy
