    It never ceases to amaze me, eldy, how much of an apologist you are for the drug takers caught in our sport. Do you get upset that it spoils your formula or something?

      Why?

        dwayne chambers admitted to doping from '02 onwards

        he set a 10.06WJR back in '97 aged 19y

        presumably he was on drugs back then even though he didn't admit to it & had -ve drug tests ?

        i'd like to know which drug it was & whether it was same one marion took pre-'00

        it has to be a blockbuster drug as it was undetectable in '97 & powered a guy to a WR - i'm salivating to know what it was

              The IAAF obviously launched its commentary as a preemptive strike in an effort to get her not to attempt a comeback. I'm guessing they'd consider not getting any money back from her a small price to pay compared to what a PR nightmare any attempted comeback would be.

              Particularly with a press (particularly our British friends) that's obsessed with drug stories.

                - Why did I not feel cheated?

                or

                  she's screwed already by iaaf's backdoor policy of shafting of the 2y rule for 1st time offenders :

                  the article said

                  IAAF spokesman Nick Davies said Jones would have to give the IAAF 12 months' notice if she intends to return to competition following the completion of her ban
                  if she decides after her ban to compete, they've put another 1y on her sentence with this

                  even if she said today she intends to return after her ban, that statement adds ~ 6/12 onto her 2y

                  the iaaf seems to have no regard for international doping law despite being one of the prime movers in setting up wada - they are as autocratic as in niebolo's day

                    Nonsense. She could have given that notice the day she was suspended and it wouldn't have added anything at all to her sentence.

                      Yes, the 1-year notification is a logical part of the process. It ensures that you're back in the testing pool before you compete, so you can't just sit out your entire period loading up on more dope, completely free of testing.

                        Sorry, unclear - why do you consider it an honor to have seen her run?

                          Well, she was dominant in a very competitive showcase event, and watching her run left an impression on me - "Body from God" and all that. Not unlike watching Krabbe in 1989-1991.
