Just in

… One step back

Continuing National Rust’s monitoring of all things related to sport and performance-enhancing drugs, today we note the announcement that Veronica Campbell-Brown has appealed successfully against her ban for a finding of HTC (a diuretic) in her urine in May 2013, due to errors in the testing protocols – see here – THE GUARDIAN

Everyone should be regarded as innocent until proved guilty, of course, and – inevitably – there are usually two sides to every story. It seems that the basis of Campbell-Brown’s appeal was that she did not knowingly take the substance.

This drugs-taking/catching-them-at-it business is not as simple as it should be.
