This is simply not true and there seems to be very selective reporting on this to support a preconceived narrative.
For example, in the media furore following Ayanas 46 second victory in the 10000m London WC, her management GSC supplied testing history to the assembled journalists which confirmed Ayana had been tested twice per month Out if competition for the preceding few years. - Of course there was no publication and oxygen supplied to this, as it completely derailed the “must be doped” narrative.
I had this confirmed to me directly by GSC.
I’m sure the top names are regularly tested, others maybe not so much.
Was that blood testing or urine.
Her management company is hardly an impartial source.
IAAF site merely gives 4+ and no mention of wether it's out or in competition or if it's urine (waste of time) or blood.
Was chatting to an Ethiopian nurse last week asked her how life was back there "too much corruption"
Also compare the doping busts Kenya vs Ethiopia. Are only Kenyans doping!
