Track Athlete Blamed "Frequent And Passionate" Kissing For Failed Drug Test

Track Athlete Blamed

While Barber and Gasquet were busted for kissing women who had just done cocaine, Roberts just wanted to kiss his girlfriend and is now being punished for it.

He later told the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) he had contaminated the substance from his girlfriend.

Rio Olympics 4x400 meter relay gold medalist Gil Roberts can finally breathe a sigh of relief as he was cleared of all doping charges. The runner says the drug got into his system through his girlfriend, who was treating a sinus infection and whom he "frequently and passionately" kissed.

Alex Salazar and her family had reportedly visited the rural parts of India around the time of the doping incident and subsequently procured the medicine for a sinus problem. She returned home and saw Roberts while still taking the medication Moxylong, which contained probenecid.

She continued taking the medicine, which contained the masking agent probenecid, when she returned to the USA, and Roberts said bouts of intense smooching caused him to test positive.

In Robert's case though, the smooch defense kind of sounds like the truth. The arbiter ruled that "this was not a case of intentional doping". Salazar was unsure how many times they kissed between when she took the medicine and when Roberts was tested.

USADA accepted the ruling on June 24, rescinding calls to ban the athlete, who went on to compete at the USATF Outdoor Championships that were now underway.

"F$3 or Roberts it must have been like lightning out of a clear blue sky for him to learn that by kissing his girlfriend this time that he was exposing himself to a prohibited substance", Thomas added.
