Drug testing, like climate change, is complex. The scientists must keep refining their data gathering and analysing techniques.
But science that is still evolving should not be imposed on athletes and if found to be faulty then past cases should be reviewed.
Cutting edge science takes along with it not only dedicated top-notch researchers who know it will be 99% hard work & 1% inspiration, but also those who cut corners, who want their 15-minutes of fame, who want to make a fast buck, who might or are even prepared to cook the data and results - it’s called cheating (not that I am suggesting, at all, that WADA are cheating!), just as the druggies indulge in cheating.
As Shakespeare has indicated (The Merchant of Venice) ‘truth will out’ - even if it sometimes takes a while.
I do like though: Veritatem dies aperit.
"Time discloses the truth"
readtherules, you might prefer 'Absit reverentia vero'
"The truth shouldn't be silenced to spare someone."
