WHY AN IRISH SPRINTER SERVING A DOPING BAN DESERVES A NEW HEARING
Some WADA-accredited laboratories and also sports judges base their conclusions and verdicts on uncertain,
inconsistent results and interpretations. That’s fatal for those individual athletes who are innocent and for the credibility of the entire anti-doping system.
Back in 2015, I reached out to this independent group of researchers to have a look at the results of the testing involved in my suspension.
Today I am happy to publish the results of their work.
The entire issue will be available at labtimes.org on the 10th October 2016.
Back in June of 2014, I was notified by the Irish Sports Council that I had failed an out of competition drugs test. I have always been strongly against doping in sport. After over a year of fighting to clear my name I was banned for a period of two years, a ruling I wholeheartedly disagree with.
The effects of this ban have been damaging to far more than my Athletics career. It has affected all aspects of my life, personal relationships, professional advancement, my education and also my mental well being.
Over the coming few days and weeks all the pertinent information in relation to my case will be posted on this site.
This site will be the means by which I will continue the fight to clear my name.
The documents uploaded will include full ‘A’ & ‘B’ sample readings, along with several other key pieces of documentation.
