  1. Meldonium was banned on Jan 1, 2016, Aregawi won in 2013. Sketchy but i don’t believe she should lose her medal.

  2. How Tainted Was the Women’s 1500 in London?

    Five of the first nine finishers of that Olympic race have been linked to performance-enhancing drugs in the years before or after.
