Clenbuterol is a prohibited substance, I assume.
Notwithstanding the quantity, athletes displaying Clenbuterol in their system have breached the WADA rules. This seems like a black and white case for anti doping? No, not quite.
WADA rules exist, but WADA bureaucrats are charged with applying them. WADA bureaucrats can decide not to prosecute. Why? How?
WADA bureaucrats who decide which athletes to target and who not to target. WADA are chronically underfunded so they can't target everybody. So, WADA bureaucrats have decided they don't necessarily have to follow their own rules. These bureaucrats have awarded themselves a special privilege that enables them to look the other way if they so wish.
I may be mistaken, but I sincerely doubt the formal process of how WADA makes such decision (ie. do we prosecute or do we look the other way ) is NOT formalised in the WADA Articles of Association. WADA bureaucrats are making this up as they go along. These bureaucrats need to tell all athletes and sponsors how these rules work and how they are applied.
I dont really need to raise the issue of country sponsorship and how that could be used to influence WADA bureaucrats thinking about prosecuting that countries athletes.
WADA bureaucrats are crooks and WADA is a crock.
