    I thought interesting too, bit surprised no-one has run with this.

    Big problem is that it really incentivises doping before going pro, because it looks unlikely they would be caught a few years down the line.

    Exactly. Research at this stage suggests this is the case in mouse models (they only live for a few years), but if these findings can be, in time, translated to athletes, it certainly would make the case for life time bans stronger.
