What is the realistic chance Farah would get stripped of any Olympic medals?

Someone give me a percentage, please.
Zero unless an ABP case is opened. The sample(s) from London would have to be examined and compared with the rest of the longitudinal profile. Any anomalies detected from the London sample(s) would have to show satisfactory evidence of doping, and agreed upon by three (3) IAAF anti-doping experts. As "casual obsever" referenced, the IAAF experts would have to conclude that "it is likely that the Passport is the result the Use of a Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method and it is highly unlikely that it may be the result of a normal physiological or pathological condition."

Even at that point the athlete can appeal to CAS, who will review the case and hear testimony from the anti-doping experts as well as from the athlete and any experts the athlete wishes to have testify on thier behalf. CAS makes the final decision and if the IAAF's case against the athlete is upheld they decide what medals, titles, times, etc., would be annulled.
