What in the blue hell is going on?
Why in the world would you ban someone for 5 years when you know they were suffering from trauma from an abortion.
The rules are all backward.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport announced Friday that it has upheld the five-year ban levied against American hurdler Brianna McNeal for violating anti-doping rules, which will bar her from competing in the Tokyo Olympics and could effectively end her career.
According to details of the case published Friday by the Athletics Integrity Unit, which is the anti-doping arm of World Athletics, McNeal missed a doping test in January 2020 after having an abortion, then changed the date of the procedure on medical forms because she mistakenly thought her doctor had gotten the date wrong.
The AIU charged McNeal, the 2016 Olympic gold medalist in the 100-meter hurdles, with tampering. In an April hearing before a disciplinary tribunal, it argued that she had falsified the doctor’s notes with an intent to deceive anti-doping officials and avoid being penalized for missing the test. McNeal contended that she was depressed and disoriented after the procedure and made an honest mistake.
McNeal went to Instagram to say it was white males who decided her fate and that was wrong.
