We should note that US sprinter Justin Gatlin has just announced that he's been found positive for the same infraction as Floyd. Reports are mixed -- some say it was by the same lab, other say it was a lab in Los Angeles. The Gatlin test is reported to have used the spectrographic test. Larry Gatlin seems nearly as unlikely a suspect as Floyd -- he's been outpoken against doping, and faces a life ban for a second offense having been nailed on a technical violation earlier. Things may really be that rotten, the tests may be bad, or there may be funny business going on.

His name is actually Justin Gatlin. :) But it is unusual that the two big names in both sports have testing problems being announced at the same time. I made two posts on my blog, one about Gatlin and the other about Landis.
