Olympic gold medalist, Gil Roberts gets another gold for best reason for testing positive for drugs.
From Vice: Back in March, Olympic gold medalist, Gil Roberts tested positive for a banned substance, and the specifics were murky at the time. Now, as detailed in a report released by USADA, Roberts said that the whole incident resulted from his girlfriend's family trip to India, where she obtained capsules administered by a "makeshift" doctor's office.
According to the report, Roberts's girlfriend, Alex Salazar, was allegedly trying to treat a sinus infection, when her step father, who speaks Hindi, connected her with a "chemist," who administered an antibiotic labeled "moxylong." Salazar returned home on March 17, and had been taking the drug for "a few weeks" when Roberts was selected for an out-of-competition test one week later. On April 14, Roberts learned he tested positive for probenecid, which is a banned masking agent. It was the first time he ever failed a drug test.
This was the basic defense of Roberts, an Olympic gold medalist in the 4x400m relay, and that was good enough for USADA.
