Prove it. She didn't fail any drugs tests.


If she'd turned up for them, we might be able to tbh.
Yes, I know you explained all this before. But I still can't get my head around making the same horrendous "mistake" 3 separate times. Once, possible. 3 times, absolutely not. I would assume the authorities get onto you straight away after the first miss right? There's absolutely no way it could "slip your mind" again IMO.

Anyway we've already argued about this before so I'm not going to again. She's just had her Olympics ban overturned, so apparently the authorities are satisfied she was just forgetful too. I don't think it's a mistake that anyone with half a brain could make 3 times, but then I'm not a top level athlete with a busy training schedule.  I'll leave it at that.

Back more on topic, while she did win a gold medal, I can't see her getting enough votes to win with this cloud over her.

It is hard to fail a drugs test when you do not provide a sample, If I get stopped by the police because they think I'm drunk and I fail to produce a sample does that mean I'm not a drunk driver?

If my livelyhood depended on making myself avalaible for drugs test I would do so, Konstantinos Kederis and Ekaterini Thanou got slaughtered in the press after they missed giving drugs samples in Athens.


I think you're right. Also, she has passed 14 tests this year, as well as before the missed tests, which, i think, prove that she wasn't taking drugs, since as far as i know, drugs will only help if taken regularly, not if you just take them one-off


Fine she gave additional samples that were clear, the drugs could have been used over a short spell to help recover from injury and then left the body.

She is British and has a chance of a medal at the Olympics so we will presume she is innocent. If she was from a former Eastern block country would you be so willing to accept her excuse?

The main thing I can't get my head around. Your whole life, everything you have worked for depends on it. You work your arse off for years and years to get into the Olympics, the highest level in sport, and in 1 instant it's gone. For that reason, I don't believe anyone could just forget about a drugs test. It's just too important and could not possibly slip your mind.

Can't believe Andy is on the shortlist... David Healy should be on it tbh. Wilkinson and Robinson though? Jeezo.....

Full Shortlist

Linky

Interestingly, Calzaghe is the first choice for the majority of the papers/magazines and experts..... Shame the public probably don't feel the same.

Has to be Calzaghe unless Hatton beats Mayweather.... Mayweather is the Federer of boxing, so if hatton beats him, then he deserves it.
