400m? Someone who received a ban for reasons other than a positive drug test?
It's not her. It's someone with a very good pedigree over the much shorter distances.........think about it.
When confronted with the evidence the lady
is alleged to have said to the Sunday times
"If you print this i'll do what Lance Armstrong did to you ,except you won't get your money back"
My thoughts exactly. I just wasn't going to take the time to try to explain that to the LRC mob.
1 in a 1000, that's it? wrote:
A 1 in 1000 chance that their blood values are natural? We are talking about 1 in 1,000,000 sorts of athletes, right? And these 1:1,000,000 sorts of athletes are presumable doing everything possible that is legal, such as intermittent hypoxia at over 20,000' and all sorts of craziness like that.
I'm not saying they are clean, but a 1:1000 chance is not nearly extreme enough to ruin someone's reputation.
If you're a doper or ex doper what is a better way to get people off your trail than by taking a strong stand against doping. It blows my mind when people think Paula is above suspicion. She has run 2 min faster than any other women in the marathon, and many of those are under strong suspicion of doping. Someone being that much better than the next best person in a highly competed in event is statistically mind blowing. That is the equivalent of a guy in the current marathoning scene running 2:01 flat.

Paula Radcliffe has vowed to lead a worldwide campaign to pressurise the World Anti-Doping Agency into applying tougher bans on drug cheats.
Radcliffe has hit out at WADA after the Court of Arbitration for Sport yesterday ruled that the British Olympic Association's lifetime ban for drugs cheats was unenforceable under their code.
That has paved the way for the likes of sprinter Dwain Chambers and cyclist David Millar to compete at this summer's Olympics in London.
It is a scenario women's marathon world record holder Radcliffe is not comfortable with and, after claiming WADA is failing to listen to athletes, called on them to make their concerns heard.
"This isn't about Dwain Chambers; it's a far wider issue. It's about a bigger deterrent being in place," she told the Daily Express.
"If WADA is not listening to the world's athletes then we have to make them. Athletes have a voice. We can put pressure on WADA to make this tougher.
"I've always had a loud voice against the cheats and if we all do that we can make a difference. I will make a stand.
"I would like to think we could do it across the world. If all the athletes logged on to a campaign and signed their name to it, I'm sure we could do it."
No it isn't
Men's Marathon is much more competitive than womens
Also she was paced
