  • PED Testing - Twice in One Day?

    From a twit by Olympic swimming star Natalie Coughlin (thanks to a local newspaper - I don't twit): "Just got surprised by the drug testers for a second time today!"

    Can't tell for sure, but this would appear to be out of competition testing. Do they really show up twice in a day? Seems like a waste of resources.

    perhaps swimming has different testing groups, so that both USADA and the federation could have coincidentally sent teams on the same day?

      I think it's quite a good idea in one way. Hypothetically speaking, you could lull a PED user into a false sense of security with the first test and they'll think they're in the clear. Then do the second one while they're still full of EPO (or their cocktail of choice).

      Ambush? A bad thing? Nah.

        Sounds like two different groups to me.
