Missed three out-of-competition tests:

Given who his coach was for many years, I'm surprised he wasn't caught earlier.

I thought he retired last summer. I saw on LinkedIn he has been working as a trainer at a gym in Los Angeles recently.

And Non-Brits are surprised that the Big O hasn't been "caught" again

He didn't compete last summer after the Olympic Trials. Is it possible that he just decided to hang up his spikes and failed to remove himself from the testing registry? I bet that Shawn got tested all the time after Trevor Graham/Marion/Gatlin all went down.

Virtually every athlete training under Trevor Graham has been caught doping at some point in their career. Can you say the same for Lloyd Cowan's group? No, you can't.

remember what I said a month ago? Turn these simple drug threads into nationalistic pissing matches and you will be terminated with extreme prejudice.

And that's the last word on the subject.
