    Now 4 missed tests in 18 months after getting off on stupid technicality last year, looks like he'll be banned for sure this time. He's also said elsewhere that this was a conspiracy by AIU to make him miss a test and bust him on a third whereabouts failure in a 12 month period. massively fishy at the very least how someone can miss that many tests in such a short period of time.

    Coleman was cleared the last time on a technicality, by getting getting things back date to so it was outside the 12 month period.
    So if you want to play the technical game and you say your are available to be tested within a 1hr period at a particular place, then and your not there then technically you Fup up.
    My understanding is there is a whereabouts app to update location etc daily. As a professional athlete it's part of your job to update the information, If you say you're gong to be at an address for 1hr during the day, you either be there or update the app. It's not rocket science.
    If you are after getting away from a ban by the skin of your teeth, on a technicality then you had better make sure you do everything you can by the book. Otherwise expect that book to be thrown at you
