missed test != filing failure wrote:
[quote]Coleman’s one-hour window was 7-8 a.m. at his former residence. He also offered up 3-5:30 p.m. at a training facility. The tester showed up at the residence at 7:55 a.m.; started the “collection attempt” at 8:01; and ended it at 9:01. A call to Coleman indicated he had just gotten back into the country and was in Eugene, Oregon, getting therapy for an injury he had suffered at the Diamond League meet in Rome. He was told to update his whereabouts. It was noted he did so “before his school location began.”
On June 12 (2018), Coleman was told he’d missed a test. .
So basically he got off because the "collection attempt" started at 8:01 ?! What happened between 7:55 and 8:01 ? They rang the bell and no one answered ? WADA should appeal this on this very basis !
Also why did the provide TWO 60' time slots (actually 60' and a 90') when he only needs to provide ONE per the rules ?
The "missed test" could only be classified as a "filing test" if his residence was in fact mentioned as his Location for that day and NOT the 60' time slot, maybe it was ? If not I can't see WADA or the IAAF not appealing this ridiculous decision.
And like the Froome "inhaler" fiasco of 2017/2018 we would have NEVER heard about this "backroom deal" if the info hadn't leaked. How many more have there been over the years ?
