If it's norovirus then there is no way he should be allowed to set foot in a stadium with 60,000 people... but with the outbreak going on there's probably no additional harm to be done in letting him in since there will be loads of contagious carriers already there (just yet to show symptoms).
Clearly though he doesn't have norovirus or he'd not even bother turning up to try and enter the stadium, he wouldn't need a doctor to tell him he's too sick.
So what's happened? Well there's a theory that IAAF want to promote their new golden boy (free to dope at will) Wade Van Niekerk, taking out Makwala is quite convenient...
A bit of commonsense would go a long way here but it seems the powers that be have decided.
Athletics need rivalries and the IAAF know this. Banning rivals to favourites would be a new low if true. I doubt this however. I think it runs deeper.[/quote]
Does it? Seems like the media would rather present the likes of Bolt and Farah as unbeatable and standalone, here in the UK at least. However I do agree that something shifty is up judging by what I've read so far.
