    Have we been too naive? Or is it coincidence?
    The most troubling one is the Junior athlete that has tested positive for a SARM. This particular SARM is said to be used for "treatment of conditions such as muscle wasting, osteoporosis and benign prostatic hypertrophy", none of which are conditions one would expect a Junior aged athlete to be concerned with. The outcome of this one will be interesting.

    The two throwers tested positive for a diuretic, but a different diuretic than the one VCB reportedly is positive for. The throwers diuretic is "used for the treatment of hypertension, congestive heart failure, symptomatic edema, diabetes insipidus, renal tubular acidosis, and the prevention of kidney stones", again not conditions one would expect healthy athletes to be concerned with.

    By contrast, Asafa & Sherone tested positive for a stimulant, which is lower on the WADA scale of infractions, and is actually perfectly legal out-of-competition. The stimulant that Asafa & Sherone are positive for is known to be used in supplements like ALR's Hyperdrive 3.0, the supplement that got Brazilian rider Flavia Oliveira in trouble a few years ago. In her case the chemical name mythelsynephrine was actually listed on the ingredients list, so she definitely didn't do due diligence.

    Naive? Perhaps. Coincidence? Maybe. Troubling? Surely. Especially in the case of the Junior and two throwers.
