  • Gaines charged with doping by USADA (re-post)

    re-posted from az2004's thread in the main forum

    -----------------

    BREAKING NEWS: Reports have been confirmed that American Chryste Gaines, who finished 3rd in the 100m, has been charged with a doping violation. "We have received a letter from USADA (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency). The letter has charged Chryste with a doping violation based on documents obtained in the BALCO investigation," her lawyer said in a phone interview.

      Just read on a post in IAAF that Montgomery is holding a press conference in the next hour or so. It was apparently announced on BBC Radio.

          The title "Monty press conference in 2 hours" was the give-away.... ;-)

            It's on the message boards. A girl in London heard it on BBC Radio 5, just looked around and couldn't find anything. She's a legit poster so let's wait and see whether it's a denial or a mea culpa; I vote for the former which means it's probably going to be the latter (still traumatised about being 100% wrong about Webb and Stacy). Jon is lurking around here somewhere, perhaps he can verify.

                    presumably there are a number of such "letters" floating around then...interesting that USADA haven't announced anything. Next 24 hours will be interesting.
