Yes if you look into his case it actually has some merit.

I don't know the exact details but after he failed the test (For nandrolone I believe) he was so adamant of his innocence and the circumstances were so peculiar that I think the authorities continued to test him as an experiment. It turned out that he failed test in the morning but passed them in the afternoon, or something like that. This is where the idea of the toothpaste being tampered with came from. I don't think it was ever supposed to be an actual excuse just a theory that was put out there which became a bit of an urban myth.

Around the same time when Mark Richardson was caught for nandrolone he got a reduced ban for helping out the IAAF with their enquiries. I think they were sure that something weird was going on with the spate of +ives that were appearing at the time. He went and did numerous tests and it was discovered that he too failed some and passed others depending on how much exercise he's done. It's thought that the nandrolone cases had something to do with a supplement that was on the face of it harmless to ingest but changed composition after vigorous exercise.

I know nothing at all about science and could have explained this all wrong so please don't start telling me all the reasons why my explanation makes no sense but I was told all of this recently by someone who was involved at the time it was something along these lines.

There were rumours that Franke (RIP) and Kallabis (or someone connected with them) spiked Baumann's toothpaste after he called them out and kicked them out of his training group (coached by his wife) because he 'knew' they were doping...(apparently Adam Goucher refused to train with Kallabis because he 'knew' too)

Don't know much of the details myself, but there are plenty of threads on Letsrun about it.

In all honesty, I think all the nandrolone positives of the time were a load of old rubbish. The authorities were aware there was something bizarre going on somewhere...

Another positive. Another Turk. This time, it's Karen Melis Mey (PB 6.93m). She was a DNS in the Olympic final and I guess we know why now.

It's so obvious what is going on in Turkey. They've bid for the Olympics and to bolster their claim think it will look good to have more world class athletes only their attempts at cheating are so crude and obvious this will undoubtedly do more harm than good to their cause.

Exactly the same thing happened in Greece at the turn of the century and look how well that turned out :roll:

Let's stop that train of thought right there.
