Shame it's being overshadowed so far by all the Russia carry on and apparent poor organisation by Brazil, although it doesn't help that Rio is pretty much bankrupt.
Haven't looked that much into it but the Lizzie Armitstead story sounds a bit dodgy, cleared to ride despite missing three drug tests in 12 months. She's been cleared to race as the tester has been blamed for missing one as she was in a hotel, the hotel wouldn't give her room number out and the tester couldn't get hold of her as her phone was (conveniently) on silent and the third test was missed due to a family emergency. Understandably UK anti doping are looking into why she's been cleared to race. What a tainted medal that will be if she wins one.
On another note, can't believe it's 4 years since London.
This multiple missed test thing is proper dodgy, and took some of the shine off Mo Farah for me. I understand that due to the randomness and frequency of the tests that maybe one test could get missed due to an emergency change in circumstances, but 3 in a year? Part of your job is being able to fulfil the requirements of the anti-doping testing and you're aware of this going in. If you don't meet the requirements you shouldn't be asked to represent your country.
And yeah, 4 years. Where did that go?
