That excuse is even worse than Sara Errani's "I spilled my mum's cancer medication in my pasta"
Errai's excuse sounds like a bad, borderline xenophobic, joke about Italian athletes, I think it's pretty hard to top that one.

I seriously cannot believe they agreed with that defence.

I can't believe he didn't have a TUE....Travis Tygart gives those away like candy on Halloween...

This doesn't set a good precedent, at all. If you can cute talk your way out of it, you escape punishment?? No notable Russian XC athletes failed their tests in the last two/three Olympics yet they are collectively banned from Korea simply for guilt by association...It's disturbing. Travis Tygart, USADA and WADA should be ashamed of themselves.
 
Seriously...I cannot believe they went for it. However, she was able to produce receipts etc.

Will we see athletes purposely doping their boy/girlfriends? Wouldn't be a bad idea as a backstop.

UKAD's external legal fees in the Tyson Fury case were £500,000+

This is an example of how stringing his AAF case out works in Froome's favour. As time ticks by and with multiple lines of defence put forward the UCI's legal fees keep going up. And the financial pressure on the UCI to settle becomes greater
The funniest part of that story is Fury's excuse - "eating uncastrated boar" .......

Odd distinction to make. Why would someone castrate a boar? They're not race horses or family pets!

And how would that affect nandrolone levels ...

One of the funnier ones I've heard.

Nandrolone is an endogenous intermediate in estradiol production from testosterone, it's the precursor to 17-beta-estradiol.

:D

So now we know where Fury got his excuse from. 5mins after being notified of the doping bust his advisors are on PubMed looking to reverse engineer an excuse (however implausible) that fits the PED

Still none the wiser about the necessity of the "uncastrated" boar distinction though...

Presumably uncastrated boars produce more testo? But I dont know how youd prove the boar meat you ate was from a male or female, balls or no balls.
 
Boars are farmed in the UK, there are very small wild populations. The farmed boar is still referred to as wild, but I’m guessing males grown for meat are castrated, which is going to affect sex hormone production, so they felt the need to make the distinction. Or they just read and repeated...

If theyre farmed then it would be like pigs or cattle. Baby boys have their bits cut off unless they are going to be kept for siring. You cant have 'wild' males in the same field / pen / etc. - they fight.

Its also why you should avoid a field full of cows & a bull. They feel threatened.

:lol:

So unless Fury keeps an uncastrated boar in his back garden which he killed and ate the night before...

...we know from the word "uncastrated" in his defence that he's just another doping BS merchant trying to con the ADA and game the system

Indeed the case fully deserves its place on this thread.

Not doping excuse, but still really funny. Few years ago members of the football national team were suspected by journalists having party at the hotel with prostitutes. On of them replied: I did not pay anything and the amount does not match :).
