    Here is a google translation of the article in question. It looks like there is less than meets the eye here:

    Wait here, Charlie Francis is famous for saying that he now believes that people can train clean and win. What's going on with his clandestine reaching out for drugs. I remember his interviews with Canadian TV when he was talking about training the worlds fastest couple and his rehearsed sounding line of believing clean athletes can win in track he sounded like Lisa Marie saying she and Micheal Jackson didn't have sham marriage........

    A post to darkwing:

    "During a hearing on doping in Germany, Prof. Werner Franke revealed new
    names of Balco customers. He cited from an interrogation document of
    September 3, 2003, and revealed the names of Zhanna Pintusevich-Block, her
    husband and manager Mark Block, intermediate hurdler Eric Thomas and the
    notorious Charlie Francis. In the focus are now also Andrew Tynes, boyfriend of
    Chandra Sturrup, who is blamed to have delivered Andrianol, a steriod, for
    Trevor Graham, who had disclosed the wheelings and dealings of Balco.
    (According to a report of Sueddeutsche Zeitung)
    -- Winfried Kramer Kohlrodweg 12 66539 Neunkirchen/GERMANY ATFS Editor of NATIONAL ATHLETICS RECORDS Fax: (49) 6821 932101"

    "Block has been a subject of the agency's [USADA] nearly year-long investigation into drug use among track and field athletes, according to a source, but USADA did not inform her of potential charges as The Post reported incorrectly Wednesday."

    My browser and the Post do not talk( or listen) to each other for some reason. Why do we have an article that says a letter was sent and another that says that it was not sent?
    Thanks for the help.

    USADA can test international athletes ... but reember, IAAF turned over Kelli White world championship case to USADA, and I am sure it would be handled same way if international athlete tested positive (remember Dwain Chambers)

    There are a lot of foreign athletes that train here in the United States. When USADA comes to a particular location where a number of athletes train, they test all of the US athletes. They come to the track with a list of athletes they have to test. They never ask for foreign athletes. At least this is what I have experienced.

    But, in college the NCAA drug tests everyone. The only time a college athlete would be tested by USADA is in the summertime when they compete in non-NCAA Meets (ie. us nationals, world champs, home depot inv., etc)

    She lives in TN. Later in the article: "Pintusevich-Block's case is likely to be handled in Ukraine and overseen by the IAAF."

    Checked hte USADA web site where they list the athletes who have been tested and didn't see her name listed. Of course, this doesn't mean that she actually hadn't been tested. I guess her name showed up in the BALCO files or something.

    >USADA only tests US Athletes. The WADA would enforce her ban.

    Not exactly true. I don't know the answer to the original question but I do know that cyclists with a USCF license (whether they are US citizens or not) are subject to testing by USADA. See Canadian Geneviève Jeanson for reference (http://www.velonews.com/news/fea/6164.0.html).

    Is this within the US jurisdiction?
