    I tried to remove the weed positives, as well as Inger Miller's caffeine positive.

    Side note, for me, weed is a ?? In that it obvs has no performance benefit, but rules are rules so don't take it. On caffeine, that reeks of trying to gain an advantage, as the amount of coffee/energy drinks youd have to consume to fail is huge. Caffeine is on and off and on etc WADA's watch list, mainly because they know athletes do take it fir an advantage. Also, we know athletes take a cocktail of substances. Anyway, my view is Millers positive was justified and raises questions. But I purposely didn't include her as I know many don't agree re caffeine ever being on the list

    According to the BBC, that was his original explanation, that he had mistakenly taken it in an energy drink in Italy. But then he admitted to taking it in a supplement. And he was found to have mislead the investigators.

    So stimulant or not, when an athlete is happy to lie, alarm bells should be ringing
