    Christian Coleman [cleared by USADA]

    Apologies if this is premature and not allowed, no bad intentions here, just wanted to bring up news. I also don't see this on the front page yet either, but Coleman seems to have missed 3 drug tests in the past 12 months. Could be in a bit of trouble?

    So far, this has shown up on the web only on the Daily Mail site and a couple of others that simply cite the Daily Mail article. It's been out there for a few hours and I would imagine the wire services and the major dailies, here and in the UK, would be all over it trying to verify it and go with it. Hasn't happened yet. Stay tuned.

    I think if I was a world class athlete subject to random testing, I would just have a locator chip implanted under my skin, so they could find me anytime, Orwell be damned.

    "A few hours ago, we recorded a podcast on ďHow to cheat at sports and get away with itĒ. Semi-jokingly, I made a list of 7 principles of cheating. And number 1 - ďDonít take a test you know you wonít passĒ. Thatís why missed tests matter. They bypass an antidoping foundation."

    I remember an interview (Christian Taylor?) about how friggin' hard it is to keep the Pee Police notified of last-minute changes in your itinerary. The gist of it was that could be TRYING to be good and still pop a 'missed-test' infraction.

    "So anti-doping asks athletes, not unreasonably, to inform them of where theyíll be - itís onerous, but is a disincentive and an inconvenience the athlete has to accept. To make it easier, athletes can literally text a location update at any time (via @karagoucher)"

    But . . . as I vaguely remember . . . you have to do it well in advance, so any desire to live a spontaneous life, where you follow your bliss or react to real-world scenarios - is out the window.

    As is mentioned in post #15, athletes can change their whereabouts by sending a text message to the ADAMS system. Athletes do this all the time.
