Oh, you’ve read articles. Oh right. Maybe you sound read what anti-doping agencies say. This quote if from the USADA website in a section literally called anti-doping 101:
Are you competing in an event for the first time where there may be USADA drug testing? Got questions? Anti-Doping 101 is here for you.www.usada.org
how about Sport Ireland:
I wonder why they tell athletes to contact the NGB if they haven’t heard within 6 weeks..?
I find it hard to believe that this information is up to date. Looking back at the USADA website from 2019 , it already has this "6-8 weeks" information - http://web.archive.org/web/20190722122805/https://www.usada.org/athletes/antidoping101/#1528994038735-5cd94582-4b4d
Btw, US anti-doping agency is not the best example. There is a reason why the US is called a third world country in a Gucci belt. According to USADA, the athlete will be notified by mail. I'm sure such services are not as fast there as in Europe.
Are you suggesting that this is a individual case? The samples of the other athletes were checked immediately, but Valieva's was delayed??! If this is the case then it is scandalous.They should not be commenting on individual cases, especially those that are ongoing and even more so when it involves a child. I really don’t understand how this is hard to comprehend.
But if there was a delay in the analysis of samples in general, it is difficult to understand why a statement is not given. For example: 'Due to the Covid situation (or some other situation) which affected the laboratory staff, the analysis of samples took longer than usual from xx to xx'
ITA also issued a statement after the US media leaked her name despite the fact that she is a 'protected person'
