"Furthermore, they were all conducted following prolonged periods of altitude training, which is today recognised as significantly impacting blood figures."
The only test which I believe we know the date of, in Vilamoura, was run on October 4th 2013. She raced in the UK (Richmond Park) on 7th September, and then again on the 14th (London) and 21st Sept (Great North Run), all in the UK). Assuming that she did not go back to altitude for a few days (no benefits for an athlete to train at altitude for such a short period of time - but then again we do not know this, as she has not released her whereabouts) this means that she had 'come down' from altitude training at least a month before the blood sample was taken at the race in Portugal. Which I imagine means that whatever effect that the altitude training would have on her off-score would be negated (i.e. her case can only be that the dehydration, not the altitude training, were the reasons for the unusual off-score).
Will be interesting to see what comes up in the Sunday Times this weekend. Hope they ask relevant questions about TUEs, asthma medication & bronchitis (masking agents?) Paula does seem to have the lungs of a coal miner, not a world class athlete.
Can only agree that a full release of data is the only way this is going to be put to bed.
