First of all, the sacrifice has not yet been made--all that has happened is that a positive test result has been announced.
There is a lot of distance between an positive result, and a sacrifice. The announcement of a name, and the imposition of a ban, will be the sacrifice--and yes, given the perfect timing of this relative to the date of my prediction and the evolution of the outdoor sprint season, that would be validation.
Similarly, if there is no name or ban, the prediction will not be validated. It's not a win-win scenario, as you are trying to make it out to be.
So far, things are looking promising, and proceeding how I thought they would.
Also, my prediction had more than one result--a sacrifice, and the sustained integrity of the program if the sacrifice is good enough.
If it happens, I will opine on whether I think it is good enough or not. I suspect that it will be, and that the program will be fine--but that, too, is subject to the further evolution of the 2013 sprint season.
