Jonathan Gault has an amazing story that we just published that should scare all clean athletes. No athlete with a positive adverse analytical finding had ever won an appeal against the Athleitcs Integrity Unit (and there have been more than 100 cases) until Lawson was recently cleared. How did he do it? Well in part his legal team was able to show that the head of the WADA lab who testified against him provided false testimony.
So here's the Cliff Notes version of what happened. Lawson tests positive for an illegal drug by registering a minuscule .65ng/ml. To put that in context for you, that's approximately 1/90,000 the weight of a grain of salt per mL. For comparison's sake, when Ajee Wilson tested positive for another drug was found to have 8 ng/ml of zeranol in her sample.
The head of the WADA lab testifies that the tiny amount doesn't mean much of anything because athletes always test positive for a tiny amount of the drug. Lawson's team asks to see the data to see if that's actually true. The lab refuses to turn over the records but a court makes them turn it over after Lawson has already been banned and the records show what she said is not true. So basically she lied (or I guess you could say she misspoke if you think it was not intentional) and he was banned but now has been cleared.https://www.letsrun.com/news/2020/04/the-amazing-story-of-how-jarrion-lawson-cleared-his-name-he-showed-that-the-head-of-a-wada-lab-provided-false-testimony-against-him/
