IAAF statement on Kelli White
Saturday 30 August 2003
Paris - A sample provided by Kelli White, USA after the 100m Final in Paris has tested positive for Modafinil. The IAAF has not yet received the results of the analysis on her sample provided after the 200m Final.

Today, we have received an explanation from the athlete to the following effect; Ms White has been taking the substance on prescription to treat a medical condition that runs in her family.

As both the nature of the substance and the content of her explanation require further inquiry and investigation, the IAAF has taken the view that bearing in mind the very serious consequences for the athlete of being suspended and being removed from competition at this late stage, the most appropriate course of action is to allow her to compete pending the completion of the necessary scientific and factual investigations.

A press conference hosted by Senior Vice-President Arne Ljungqvist, will take place at the Press Conference Room at the Stade de France at 16:45 today.

very interesting, after going to www.modifinil.com to get an idear of what the drug might be use for this is what I found..( just a few lines )1) " Is a memory-improving and mood-brightening psychostimulant"
2) " Modifinil is proving clinically useful in the treatment of narcolepsy".
There was also mention of use in the treatment of ADD....It seems like there are quite a few ligit uses for Monifinil. I hope all works out for her because she is such a fine sprinter .....and in her interviews seems like a good person
