Anti-Doping News

The AP reports the latest revelation in the Justin Gatlin saga.
The top assistant to track coach Trevor Graham gave Justin Gatlin an injection, which he believed to be vitamin B12, two weeks before the world record-sharing sprinter tested positive for steroids.

After Randall Evans gave Gatlin the shot, the sprinter was given what he was told were anti-inflammatory pills as a follow-up, a person with knowledge of the case told The Associated Press on Monday.
Just so you know, Barry Bonds says he thought he was getting B12 injections too.

At the ,T&FN message board the story is a non-starter. eldrick:
iirc correctly, the testo detected was consistent with a cream/gel preparation, NOT an injectable form, so this sounds like a red herring
