Doping in sports

Can't find the correct thread but here goes.


This made me smile. Nice excuse!





Fatima Yvelain is a regional level distance runner in France. I suspect you had not heard of her until know but she now enters history with surely one of the best ever excuses for doping.

Following a positive test for EPO after a half-marathon, she claimed strong rains on the day of race had caused water to stream over hidden medical waste somewhere near the course. As she ra, the EPO-laced rainwater splashed her on to her shorts, thus contaminating her urine when she later provided a sample at the control.

Needless athletics website VO2.fr reports the French Athletics Federation didn’t believe a word. She is banned for two years.

She should be banned for an additional 2 years just for not being able to think of a better excuse!
