    yeah sorry.

    Wasn't the womans winner of an olympic gold ITT (rio?) about 40
    Kristen Armstrong. She was a couple of days short of her 43rd birthday. She had a baby back in 2010.

    Jessica Ennis won a Worlds Gold and Olympic silver after having a baby. Laura Kenny's another mother
    Jessica Ennis won a world title while heavily pregnant (although that was backdated after another athlete was banned)

    JE-H had children in July 2014 and September 2017. Assuming she was pregnant between November 13 to July 14 and then Jan 17 to Sep 17 her titles in those periods were precisely zero. So I'm pretty confident that she won nothing whilst pregnant, let alone heavily pregnant.

    She did win the WC in 2015 (post first child) and placed 2nd in the Olympics in 2016 so did achieve pretty highly postpartum though.

    I was a joke about her winning the 2011 World Championship several years later when she may have been heavily pregnant*. The same as Froome winning that year's Vuelta lying in hospital.


    *Fact check: she actually wasn't.

    Facts don't lie!!!!1!!1! As mentioned, it was a joke. Didn't think it would need spelling out quite so clearly

    This from a week ago seems worth a mention. Shelly-Ann Frazer-Pryce Jamaica’s 2 time Olympic champion, setting a PB in the 100m, no suggestion anywhere that this might be suspicious and even the British record holder says this is ‘amazing for athletics’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/57420366

    Shelly-Ann Frazer-Pryce is a 34 year old mother whose pervious best was set back in 2012 and is now the second fastest woman in history after Flo Jo. Miraculous.

    It's getting ridiculous now.
    First there was Richardson but now..............Blessing Okagbare?
    I mean she's been a solid sprinter for years, but suddenly also 10.63, even with a questionable wind?
    DAS left her eating dust, just a week earlier.

    Anyone else watching the BBC thing on the Olympics?

    Christine Ohurugu's (of this parish iirc) explanation of her three missed tests is... unconvincing...

    Ah, missed it tonight. I saw one last week that reminded me how bad we were until Major decided to divert lottery funding towards Olympic sport. Atlanta was an embarrassment.

    Yes, Atlanta - one Gold medal, thanks to Redgrave & Pinsent.....

    Discussed in this thread at length.

    In short - if she was Christina Ohurugiski, the same people defending her would likely sound rather different...

    28m
    Oliver Dustin was provisionally suspended by the French AD authority and both UKAD and UKA were informed of a sample containing traces of cocaine. The sample, however, was found to have been contaminated in the lab and, as reported, he is now clear to go to the Olympics.

    Note that all three tweets now link to the same article.

    TBF, he's in the top 10 in the world this year, medal shot might be stretching it but certainly could be in the Final.

    Glad it turned out there was no Dust in his sample......

    Presumably, these are general drug testing labs who also do work for UKAD? Hence where the contamination came from?
  • r0bhr0bh Posts: 1,562
    It was the French AD agency and a French lab IIRC

    Sure, but same logic though?

    Could have been another sample that did have cocaine in it that x-contaminated with Dustin's.
    Plenty of sports people like a bit of the stuff apparently - footballers, Rugby players etc, along with Jockeys who enjoy it's appetite suppressing qualities.
