So because Kowalczyk had an injury which she treated with a medicine that is allowed out of comeptition but not in competition , she's not allowed to call out the Norwegian team for having nebulizers on the waxing truck and using asthma meds on athletes that don't have asthma? No, that's not hypocrisy. Kowa is correct and has stood up for her sport when its leading lights haven't.John de Savage said:The hypocrisy lies in calling for a complete ban on asthma meds while she herself has used performance enhancing drugs.
The fact that she had a medical reason to do so is not a mitigating circumstance in the context of her routinely criticising sick athletes who benefit from prescription medications. She talks the talk but she didn't walk the walk.
