      IAAF still needs to sign off on it, of course.

          Missing WC was a pretty stiff penalty.

          And I suspect any prize monies won in July will have to be returned.

              I cannot complain with that verdict. Hopefully the subtance will be put on the list from now on.

                Just spoke to the head of JADCO; the ban takes effect today. Therefore, as you said initially, the ban ends in December.

                  I pray that you asked her [Dr. Patrece Charles-Freeman] to step down. Her abject incompetence is responsible for Brooks not serving 3 months, also.

                    Missing the WC is the real penaty here. Not to mention the harm done to their reputations. Blake was/is an up and coming runner but he will always carry this with him even if he stays clean the rest of his career. Not sure what they will be banned from over the next 3 months that will be any significance.

                      That's the funniest thing.
                      That means athletes can now just claim they didn't know the b sample was tested and get away with it.
                      So someone gets caught with 10x levels testoserone but because they weren't notified they get let off. Wow

                        Agreed...and this really doesn't speak to how this whole situation has been mishandled, which draws suspicion to this situation. Something IMO, seems shady.

                          One cost of a minor ban is the Gatlin semi-lifetime ban for a later positive.

                            Just glad young Yohan Blake is back and running for next year. Hopefully he will keep his head down now and produce another good winter ready for summer and I think he can get right up there with Asafa and Gay, he just needs a better start which should come with age and power. At the moment the jamacians are producing some great starters.

                              No, that is not what it means. Please, do not trivialize what has happened.

                              The athlete in question was specific to ask for her B sample to be tested. Once she did so, she was entitled by IAAF/WADA regulations to representation at said testing. JADCO, the entity in charge of the process is then obligated to inform the athlete of the Date, Time & Place of the test, so that said representation can observe all proceedings of the test process. JADCO failed to notify the athlete. No notice of Date, Time & Place was ever given to her. At the appointed Date, Time & Place the laboratory, acting in proper procedure, opened the B sample for testing. The moment they opened it there was a violation of the IAAF/WADA code as there was no athlete representation present . This was not the fault of the laboratory, as they are not compelled to wait for anyone to show up; they have a clear procedure that starts once the Date, Time & Place are all correct. They wait on no one. The error is entirely JADCO's. And, it has nothing to do with an athlete saying they "did not know the B sample was tested". It has everything to do with no official document existing that showed compliance with the IAAF/WADA rules.
