Nobody cares because he isn't a distance athlete.
He is a LJ'er and a 100m athlete, so I am one of the very few who cares.
Too bad, but what can I say. I liked and held out hope for Lawson in the 100m, same as I did Livermore from Jamaica (who also tested positive).
Both were athletes who were very good but not the absolute best, and not necessarily internationally great.
We will see what comes of this. I know the level of metabolites found was vanishingly small, but without some comparison data from the general population who also eat beef (and probably in greater quantities), I don't buy it--either from Lawson or from Wilson.
In order for USADA to have accepted the excuse from Wilson there MUST be some such data somewhere. If anybody has it, a link would be great.
Don't forget about Fernando Cabada, he used the same tainted meat excuse... and just recently called out a doper for taking his prize money.
USADA needs to get the Excuse figured out
