        While not listed on the World Anti- Doping Agency prohibited list, methylxanthine falls within a category of stimulants banned by the agency, anti-doping experts said.

        Will somebody please explain this for me?

          That's a question I have also...My take on this is that that particular stimulant isn't listed, but the benefits of it are similar to stimulants on the banned list... :?

            The real question seems to be how did they all get it in their bodies and was there any attempt to cheat.

            This whole affair has put a bad light on track and field in general and jamaican track and field in particular but that said, we could be heading for the least painful outcome given the circumstances.

            That is, if these guys have a good explanation for this.

            Maybe they all had swine flu and took some cough medicine to relieve the congestion :roll:

              If those steering the course of this Jamaican bubble don't want to risk it bursting, they'll define and prove that there was no significant fault or negligence by those suspected and eventually proven to have taken this stimulant. Consequently, this little problem simply becomes a small muddy puddle under a very tall bridge.
              Fire Impossible.

                So ALL 5 athletes tested positive for the SAME exact stimulant? What are the chances of that? Do they all have asthma or bronchitus?


                I'm perplexed, to say the least. Seems like......aw I won't go there.

                        Pretty good if the stories of a "tainted" supplement are true.

                          It's a name for a catagory of stimulants that include caffeine.

                            But different camps and one training in the US if I'm not mistaken? I mean, yes, its possible. Kinda like playing the numbers I guess.


                            Its a first for everything right?! Even tainted sups...
