      Another reason to not eat pork! A snippet from her Instagram post:

      I have since learned that it has long been understood by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) that eating pork can lead to a false positive for nandrolone, since certain types of pigs produce it naturally in high amounts. Pig organ meat (offal) has the highest levels of nandrolone.

      In the following 5 days after being notified, I put together a food log of everything that I consumed the week of that December 15th test. We concluded that the most likely explanation was a burrito purchased and consumed approximately 10 hours before that drug test from an authentic Mexican food truck that serves pig offal near my house in Beaverton, Oregon.

          This isn't something to joke about!
          The US team just lost the AR holder in the 1500 & 5000!
          And if the entire ban is held up, she's out of the next 2 or more WC's and the 2024 OG's, as well as Tokyo!!
          I read her instagram message, and i fully believe her!!
          She's innocent!

                Not a matter of innocence or guilt; she has a banned substance in her system.

                      CAS says she's not, so that's that.

                          Quite a week for the women...Rowbury is out, Huddle is out and now Houlihan is out in the worse way possible (well almost).

                            This has depressed me no end!
                            That people are just accepting this makes me even sadder!

                            And then there's the question of who can replace the American Record holder in both events she'd declared for!!
                            The last race Schweizer ran was 15:00.44--and she finished 3rd or 4th or worse!
                            Purrier is over 3 seconds slower than Shelby over 1500!

                            Simpson?
                            Her best this year is 4:06.18!
                            Could Cranny improve 20 seconds in the 5000?

                            Even thinking of replacements for Houlihan makes me want to cry!!
                            This is really fucked up!!

                                Shalane Flanagan made a short (4:30) video of her statement on Shelby!
                                She's on the verge of tears throughout in a highly emotional personal message!
                                She says she might leave the sport entirely because of this!
