I would normally agree with the "idiot" comment...but I've known Jordan for many years now and I just don't see him using something like this. I could be totally wrong but doesn't make sense to use something that's not very "high octane," so to speak. Especially since it's well known that meldonium stays in your system for quite a long time.
If he really wanted to cheat, he could have been using epo for years now, yet he's never been popped for that. He's also done a heavy number of races that test, and finishing in testable positions, so it's not like he's ducking testing. Since he's been OOC tested, one would think epo would have shown up, if he were using real juice. I know he's raced many times in Mex, so it's not like he couldn't have obtained epo if he really wanted to. I just don't see it adding up but I could be wrong. Just not your typical doper profile, not by a long shot.
as far as rosario goes, do you really expect every coach to be a fly on the wall with every single one of their athletes? gimme a break, pretty damn sure ben would never condone this sort of thing.
The usual "he's such a great guy, I don't think he was doping" defense. BS. If he got 4 years, you bet your ass that he did it.
