    Lots of older Russian cases confirmed with bans and Ukhov stripped of his 2012 Olympic title. Presumably Robbie Grabarz now gets upgraded to silver?

    Another big name - Russian hurdler Sergei Shubenkov.

    Very embarrassing all round since he was one of the chosen few Russians allowed on the international circuit.

    Considering this is the *2nd* such issue for McNeil/Rollins, I expect her to get the book thrown at her real hard.

    South African long jumper Luvo Manyongo another whereabouts failure casualty, faces a Tokyo ban. May just be an unannounced retirement though.

    Some talk here about the American legal system: at the highest level its not a legal system to be taken seriously; based on the holders political views as you go up the state and national chain, so if you have the "correct" views even at Supreme Court level you can be selected. Thank goodness our top legal judges are not political creatures.

    Oh boy! Both the Men's & Women's winners of October's Sofia Marathon have been popped for their doping test after the race (they are Moroccan & Ukrainian respectively).

    Some of it might be a function of Seb Coe introducing a more transparent system? Under Lamine Diack it seems very possible that some whereabouts failures were covered up or ignored or that Diack welcomed bribes from the athlete concerned.

    Yes, good to see they are pressing cases like this.

    Annoying, incidentally, that Coleman's 2 years will be up in time for the US World Champs in 2022.

    Not good. At least the AIU is contesting Naser’s verdict, now - so a chance we might see her banged to rights. I’m assuming the incident that got her off (“can’t have been a missed test - agent went to wrong address”) will be pushed back on and she will be told it’s her fault for giving the wrong contact details...

    Kenya’s 2017 world 1500 metres champion Elijah Manangoi has been banned for two-years after missing a series of drugs tests.

    The sequence of events from Coleman’s POV is completely implausible, the AIU are doing good work in my opinion, the sport may have to go through a difficult period where more top athletes, including some household names, are brought down to earth, in order to increase the fear of getting caught which was severely lacking under the previous administration
