Exclusive: Devonish defiant over Team GB medal relay hopes for London 2012
December 27 - Olympic gold medallist Marlon Devonish has told insidethegames that Britain's hopes of success in the 4x100 metres at London 2012 will not be lost on a failed changeover, as happened in Daegu at the World Championships earlier this year.
...........The 35-year-old has also called on a consistent anti-doping rule to be brought in that applies to each national Olympic committee to prevent the wrangling that has engulfed the British Olympic Association (BOA) and the World Anti Doping Agency's (WADA) dispute recently.
The BOA want to protect a bye law that prevents athletes found guilty of anti-doping offences competing for Britain in future Olympics, but WADA has ruled that this makes them non-compliant with their own regulations on the issue.
"I do not condone drugs whatsoever, WADA have definitely stepped up investment to keep drug cheats out of the sport," he said.
"You have blood testing now at the Olympics and if they can do that throughout the year that will be brilliant.
"So I'd like to see there be one rule to stop the confusion.
"I think it's only the BOA who is against it at the minute so one way or another they should make a decision and make it clear – one rule."http://www.insidethegames.biz/sports/su ... ondon-2012
It does seem most of the British team want a uniform rule. Controversially, and I'm not saying this is actually the case, some may believe there is a personal element or maybe an establishment versus the 'little man' aspect to this. The CAS case will roll on until quite close to the Games and the BOA should be mindful of the publicity it will cause.
