    from the AP link: <<Both WADA and the organization that handles doping cases for track's international federation has the right to pursue the case, though it's not expected they will.>>

    First failure was June 6, 2018, last was April 26, 2019, but they "deemed" the first failure to have occurred on the "first day of the quarter for which an athlete fails to make a (sufficient) filing." So by backdating the first failure by over two months, the three failures did not fall withing a "calendar year".

    Talk about a technicality!

    Or at least carries an up-to-date calendar with him.

    Backdating to the first day of the quarter effectively means the rule is applied as 3 missed tests in 4 consecutive quarters, not 3 missed tests in a rolling one-year window.

    The AP story includes this sentence, but I am not certain whether that means the new rule will change to a rolling calendar year instead of four calendar quarters.

    This rule is being rewritten to eliminate confusion for a new version of the code, which takes effect in 2021.

    A number of athletes on Twitter don't seem to be pleased with this decision.
