    I'm pretty sure the Gleaner would not go without some verification that the NGB has in fact been given notice of an A positive from 2008.A good number of possibles have a mark with-in the current OG Q window.

    One article I read was quick to point out that it was NOT Bolt...and i don't think it was SAFP...the gleaner says an experience runner and another media outlet says it was a high profile runner...so we have to wait and see.

    A more complete story now posted to front page. Apparently the offending drug is Jamaica's old buddy methylhex....

    Probably. It may depend on who the athlete is. If it is someone really high profile then the Internet may explode. If it's a relay alternate... shrug.

    Question, because I dont know the specific details: SAFP, VCB, Powell and SS all have previous "offenses" and served bans. If they were determined to the the athletes here, that is a second offense and permanent ban?

    Apologies if my question falls outside the board guidelines.

    perfectly reasonable question: there is no simple answer. Not only because lengths of penalties vary with the substances involved, but also because of the "providing help" rule which can cause sentences to be shortened.
