      Obviously modafinil is not the petty pseudo-stimulant that it was first characterized as. If so many people are taking it, it's either a masker or works in combination with another (THG?) drug, and the two work together symbiotically?

            So just who is leaking all this stuff to the Washington Post, and why to a paper that doesn't even know that track exists anymore?

              Always possible of course, but I think you're overlooking the proclivity athletes have for taking anything and everything they think might remotely help them (distance runners and their Japanese hornet venom?). I suspect Modafinil is just the fad du jour. Particularly since so far "so many people" is a handful of people all in the same training group, hardly reflective of the thousands of elite athletes out there.

                    Glover and Thomas?!

                    the 'expert' denied modafinil as a masker, but did I just read that hurdlers Glover and Thomas are now on the list of positives?!
