    Forging (yes, that's what she did) and uttering a document (however defined) is an offence in all countries with a functioning legal system. Luckily, in this case, it's resolvable by non-criminal sanction.
    Here's a recent Australian example of a highly competent but uncredentialled (I refuse to say unqualified) person being criminally prosecuted after the fact for manipulating the documentary process in relation to his employment.

    I hope that athlete's lawyers are advising them about the potential local and/or international criminal risks of lying in semi-judicial proceedings, attempting to subvert the same proceedings and making false documents for gain, all in relation to sport drug testing regimes.

    It will just take some aggrieved sponsor or eager beaver prosecutor to give some of these athletes a criminal conviction, major debt and possible jail sentence.

    What else needs to be going on? She admittedly tampered with evidence after missing a test having already served a ban for missing tests. She's lucky it's only 5 years.

    The excuse is just a smokescreen and kinda reprehensible that she would reveal that (And insinuate the authorities are racist) to get ahead of what is likely the ban being upheld today.
    She must have the same representation as Chinese freestyle swimmer Sun Yang

    I think it's odd to get a 5 year suspension because you were one day off on the date of a doctor's appointment. It seems to me like something else is going on that's not in the article. The CAS decision is expected in the next few days, and it may provide some additional information.

    It IS tampering with medical evidence. No "claim", or quote marks around tampering is necessary.
    She can be criminally charged too if she actually did that. The entitlement with this generation is something else.

    In the article, Brianna McNeal said she missed a drug tester knocking on her door and she also didn't hear the drug tester calling her, because she was in bed recovering from a medical procedure.

    The multi-year suspension for the "tampering" charge, according to McNeal, was because she changed the date on a doctor's note about the medical procedure to say that it occurred 1 day before the missed drug test, when in reality the medical procedure was 2 days before the missed drug test.

    She claims she thought that the doctor's office had written down the wrong date, and she was trying to change the date on the doctor's note to make it more accurate. AIU claims that changing the date on the doctor's note was "tampering" with medical evidence, hence the tampering charge.

    Maybe AIU thinks she was lying about the reason for changing the date on the note, meaning that they might think she changed the date on the note for some nefarious reason, not because she thought the doctor had the wrong date. But I'm not sure what one day difference makes, or why she would intentionally try to mislead AIU about the date of the medical procedure.

    That might be the smart thing to do, atually.

    Lawyer statement seems pretty strong. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    And former Kenyan Nelly Jepkosgei (BRN) earlier this year.

    Some free advice to athletes - just don't lie kiddies, because people can check your bullshit. Here's the details of Jepkosgei's tampering decision and 4 year ban with one year discount for admitting it before the final decision.
