Questions Arise Regarding Alberto Salazar's Explanation For Testosterone Experiment on His Sons - In 2006, Alberto Salazar said the idea that Gatlin was sabotaged was "preposterous on so many fronts"
A key part of Alberto Salazar's defense is that he tested testosterone on his sons as he was fearful that someone like Chris Whetstine could sabotage Galen Rupp, not because he wanted to see how much micro-dosing one could get away with. However, when Whestine was accused of sabotaging Justin Gatlin in 2006, Alberto Salazar, himself, called the idea "preposterous on so many fronts." Additionally, a review of the 900+ pages of Justin Gatlin trial transcript reveals that Gatlin never claimed he was sabotaged with Androgel and was not busted for violating the T/E ratio which is what Salazar tested. Gatlin was busted for having exogenous testosterone in his system as detected by the more expensive direct carbon isotope ratio test (CIR). Lastly, even Gatlin's expert defense witness called it "improbable" that an hour would be enough time to sabotage someone after a race as it would likely take longer than that to get into your system.
