        More significantly, the Nigerian 4x100 is banned from Eugene, because she was part of it when they set their QT. So a bit of luck for the world ranked 17th nation.

        lol I'm liking the extra serving of spite WADA is giving to this unapologetic fraud.

        Could not have happened to a more deserving douchebag.

        Enjoy your enforced retirement in disgrace Okagbare.

        She's chatting on on twitter. She is one of the ones that annoys me most now!

          More info on GW1516 at https://www.usada.org/spirit-of-spor...s-know-gw1516/

          It seems that supplements can be contaminated with it ...

          Supplements are not made for professional athletes - they’re made for body builders, bouncers & gangsters. The makers are constantly trying to add illegal ingredients because their prime market don’t care about testing, all they want is the big muscles. Any serious athlete is daft to take them.

      • Two more men out of the WCs, both high profile medal contenders.

        Randolph Ross, US 400m runner who ran 44.13 in June, for tampering in a whereabouts case, and Lawrence Cherono, Kenyan marathon runner and fourth placer in Tokyo, tested positive for trimetazidine, another fat burner.

          Oh bloody hell, two of my medalists in the Prediction Contest! Why couldn't they have announced this before the contest closing time? So inconsiderate.

            I think a few people picked Ross.

            I had Cherono as I think did quite a few others. I'm glad I picked Allison over Ross.

            Checking my screenshots of entries, 5 picked Ross and 9 picked Cherono (2 as the winner). Four of us are affected by both withdrawals.

        • Going to be a f u for me already. I picked Ross and Cherono

          • US team must be counting their blessings they didn't run him in the mixed. Or maybe they knew he was under suspicion and that's why they nominated a reserve for the 400 solo?

              True, but they pretty much ran a C team. There were some athletes in their pool for the single sex 4x4s they didn't use.

          • Another case of tampering with a 3rd whereabouts failure. This time decathlete Garrett Scantling - https://www.usada.org/sanction/garre...al-suspension/

              I suspected something was up when he wasn't in the US team.

          • Nigerian websites reporting that one of Nigeria's Commonwealth Games 4 x 100m women's gold medal winning team has tested positive.

              Ostarine and ligandrol. Both are selective androgen receptor modulators (which help muscle growth) sometimes found in supplements.

          • England women’s team promoted to a gold in the womens 4x100m relay?

            Does anyone know her coach in the NCAA and the group she trains with?

              She's at North Carolina A&T, and a team mate of Randolph Ross who was suspended just before the WCs. The coach there is Duane Ross.

              I think North Carolina A&T in recent years has gained a reputation as a traditionally minor college that has been mixing it with the more-established big names. I now wonder whether they are just the Turkey of the NCAA.

          • It is very sad. Grace Nwokocha is only 21. The University of North Carolina programme is tainted after this second suspension. Former Head Coach Duane Ross is Randolph Ross's father and he was an Olympian who served a drugs ban, caught up in the BALCO drugs conspiracy. Duane Ross has literally just moved to the University of Tennessee as Director of Track and Field. It will be interesting to see how his athletes perform there.



            Following from Wikipedia:

            Following the analysis of information received from BALCO in 2010, Duane Ross was called to testify in a case against his coach Trevor Graham. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) suspended Ross for two years for attempted use, possession, and trafficking of performance-enhancing drugs.[6] As a term of his suspension, all his results from November 2001 onward were nullified.

              LOL, they have no shame in the US. A drugs ban? No problem, we're happy to give you a job coaching impressionable 19 year olds! Dennis Mitchell another example, appointed by USATF to coach the US relay squad!

              Imagine Linford Christie trying to get a coaching job at Loughborough. I don't think it would happen. Certainly he's persona non grata with UKA, getting refused accreditation and not getting invited to events.

              • To be honest, I think it probably shows how little impact T&F has in the US. ‘Major’ sports would avoid the scandal but there’s no real news outside of the Olympics for athletics
