    I see no reason why a delayed positive would be any different from an "immediate" one in terms of penalty imposed.
    There are no strings on me

    I wonder if it was a silver or bronze medalist. The article states the athlete was informed last month and the gold medalists competed last month in some meets. I would expect them not to compete at all if they had been notified about positive sample.

    Why wouldn't they compete in 2016 after being told about a positive from 2008?

    The old buddy that wasn't actually on the WADA list at the time...

    -sigh- I hate things like this. Clear cut or hard stuff I have no problems with...the whole methylhexaneamine thing was messy before it was actually placed on the WADA list.

    If this is who I've been told, a medal _may_ be lost. If it's that person, no other games/championships would be affected. Will wait to see just like everyone else.

    Right. No one has been banned from competing.

    I certainly never meant to imply that.

    More drug related bullshit...this "problem" will NEVER go away until the athlete is banned from the sport, period, for using a substance that now carries a 1 or 2 year ban. Hell, even baseball is banning a player for 1/2 season for minor offenses.

    Cheating has been going on since man first stood erect. Going to be tough to stop it now.
