Obi Igbokwe Suspension :(

I hadn’t seen this anywhere before. Sounds very suspect, and disappointing for Obi.

There has been a lot of controversy around this new test the last couple years. MLBPA was trying to raise it to 100 picograms for a positive. I think the real issue is that athletes who may have taken the drug once years ago could test positive as the drug can be dormant in your system for a long time before showing up. Not saying Obi took anything. A bunch of guys who did are worried they will get hit with a suspension for something they did years before. I do agree with him that USADA is too strict. Track is a very dirty sport but we don’t need to be stricter than everybody else in the world.
