    As per title really. Given that the IAAF random out of competition testing is based on some form of heirarchy (i.e. the best athletes are subject to it the most), do those athletes who, by definition, aren’t competiting get tested at all? A cynical convicted doper might use the time to gain as much training effect of a doping regime so that they come back stronger.

    I presume there must be OOC testing for these guys and gals?

    My understanding (incomplete I might add) is that they do but of course research has recently indicated that the residue effects of doping is a major medium to long term benefit.
