Aren't you just glad that our sport is on top on the latest doping scandel. Ant West banned for 18 months (retrospectively) for swigging a commercially available energy drink with a WADA banned substance in it (methylexaneamine).
It appears in the 2014 'Prohibitive Substances' under 'Specified Stimulents (examples). How can you have 'Specified Stimulents (examples)? Surely if it is specified you have to list ALL not just examples, or is it the lazy mans' way out or it leaves it open to ban whatever they want, tea, coffee, Castrol R?
If Ant got 18 months for this, 200 lifetimes wouldn't be enough for Lance Armstrong.
Just as well WADA and CAS weren't around in the 70s as I think that some Yanks and their bongs (allegedly) might have fallen foul of the protectors of all sport.
I notice that 'Gene Doping is also banned which explains why 'Little' John Kocinski retired.
