What if we look at medal winners, instead of times? From the IAAF leaked blood values, we saw statistics compiled by the Sunday Times for the marathon -- men and women combined -- that 89% of World Championship and Olympic medal winners never recorded suspicious blood values ever in their careers.
I don't think that means much mainly because of what we learned from the Poistogova case: Per the ARD recordings, she admits to using EPO but yet has a "normal" appearing hematological profile of her ABP. She's a medal winner from London, so how many other Poistogova's are out there as medal winners with no suspicious blood values?
Many of course. Look at Farah for example. Plus, as rekrunner knows but often ignores, that leaked database was only a partial set, so that statement is quite bold:
"89% of World Championship and Olympic medal winners never recorded suspicious blood values ever in their careers."
Plus, 89%? Who says? Based on which events?
As for his long-winded blurp from yesterday, did anyone understand it? Something like: "since only Europeans, Chinese, and Africans set world records during the EPO era, EPO does not work?"
