<<In the 10 months leading up to the 2001 World Track and Field Championships, the anti-doping agency conducted 926 tests on U.S. track athletes. Of those tests, 20 percent were without warning.
Some of track's biggest names weren't given surprise tests by the U.S. agency: Maurice Greene and Tim Montgomery, the first- and second-place finishers in the 100 meters; and John Godina and Adam Nelson, first and second in the shot put. All of these star athletes passed drug tests at competitions.
Athletes can still be surprise-tested by international federations, but the U.S. agency doesn't coordinate or share testing schedules with these groups.>>
Hey guys, whether the two groups coordinated or not, we know that all those you name were tested out of competition--TWICE--by the IAAF or they wouldn't have received their World Champs prize money.
You can slam domestic testers for not getting enough done, but to name these names and suggest that they were somehow dirty is pretty shoddy journalism.
