50 yr old female popped for doping

https://www.usada.org/jennifer-pate-...ping-sanction/

Jennifer Pate popped for anabolic steroids
So many dumb master-bators.

Sad to see it in amateur female cycling, which is like doping for coupons.

Not the first and, sadly, probably not the last.

I thought I read one of the women pros at Ironman Kona got popped.

Then at least it was worthwhile.

Funny thing to note, the amateurs get 4 years right off the bat, and the test was in August. Pretty different situation than the pros

Really? Do you know anything about the person? I certainly don't. Not before reading the link, and certainly not after.

These USADA press releases are ridiculous - boiler-plate with no specifics..

It feels very unfair and sensationalist.

I agree, USADA giving themselves a pat on the back for getting these low life dopers, kinda like that 90+ year old who ate liver, makes as much sense as building the wall.

The 90+ year old set a World Record. Testing is part of that procedure to ratify it. At some point, maybe World Records for age-graded racers won't be kept, or be under the auspices of the sport governing bodies. But who here wants to make the line in the sand with regard to what number that should be?

PS Carl Grove isn't a low life doper.

It's hard to tell about the whole story from one source only.

It is clear that USADA wants examples to show the public that it is doing what it can to combat doping. Say what you want about this, but my guess is that it's a reaction to amateur racers' complaints to USADA about their local cheaters. Folks like to complain, and complaining about dopers is easy to do (and probably justified).

So it's no wonder that USADA is putting out these "in your face" stories about busting dopers. They believe they are providing their customers with what the customers want. USADA is pandering to its base, so to speak.

Of note is that it appears when plead guilty / accept the test, there is no written decision to outline your culpability and knowledge of why you are being sanctioned. You can assume the person who was caught knew what they were doing and knew that it was wrong.

It is interesting to read the decisions when someone fights their test results to understand the psyche of the doper.

If this case was about Longo, the thread title would likely read " 60 yr old female popped for doping and no one is surprised..."
