  • Other than the Times, I'm not sure many other newspapers etc. ran with the Dustin story. I suspect that other journos did a bit of digging and found out about the lab contamination and decided not worth the risk from a legal perspective. These stories should only really become public once the AIU have formally charged an athlete.

    Matt Lawton clearly ran the story based on a 'source'. Quite a few people on social media have hinted towards the likely source and my instincts are the same.

      A lot of support from other GB athletes for Langford's take too. Unsurprising with Matt's reputation. Speaking of reputations, I noticed Seren Bundy-Davies has furthered her reputation as a bitter, unpleasant person too - Shocker. Drama all over British athletics Twitter.

      Ah I see now. Kyle and matt Yates arguing feels like 2018.
      Jamie has been nothing but courteous and respectful though over the selections

      Ok, what's this about Seren Bundy-Davies?

    frankly I'd still be worried about the lads mental health right now, and It's only a matter of time before those rotten American reactionaries start using his name to score points RE Sha'Carri Richardson.

    EDIT: Story now up in The Times. The case against Dustin has been dropped by French anti-doping authorities due to "cross contamination". Poor lad, what an awful few weeks he must have had.
    he will be competing at the Olympics ; the French officials at the June meet made errors; lucky boy.

      I don’t see him as lucky - having all this shit to deal with in the run up and missing a diamond league

      So you really think that a 800m runner from Workington is a regular user of 'Colombian marching powder'? What are you smoking?

      Philipo, please, please read the detail of this story. The very last thing the “boy” is, is “lucky”.

  • trickstat - As someone from just down the coast originally, I would say that if I came from Workington, I'd take whatever I could to escape reality.

            Those rumours don't seem to have come to anything.

        • Almost half the NIgerian athletics team has been removed due to lack of testing: AIU-PRESS-RELEASE-20-ATHLETES-NOT-ELIGIBLE-FOR-TOKYO-2020-AS-MINIMUM-TESTING-REQUIREMENTS-NOT-MET-BY-CATEGORY-A-FEDERATIONS-FINAL.pdf (athleticsintegrity.org)

              No wonder she's been posting such unexpected times this year.

          • Not good when you look at who is in her trading group (Rana Reider’s): Bromley, De Grasse, Gemili, Nieta. At best a massive distraction. At worst, guilt by association.

              True, SprintRelayFan - that will help in the PR- stakes. Also, it seems that group is massive, so it's not as if it can be a particularly close coaching relationship.

          • Is it a coincidence that Okagbare is in the frame 10 minutes after calling out the Nigerian national admin in strong terms on twitter for the non-testing fiasco?

              Does anybody. They appear to have been driving athletes away for years!

              Obikwelu, Alozie etc etc

          • Kenyan sprinter Mark Otieno Odhiambo also chucked out of games for positive test. Can't see any reference to him on here, so might have been missed.
