    Jessica Peris , daughter of Nova Peris failed a drug test 6 weeks before the Commonwealth Games

    AUSTRALIAN athletics has been rocked by a drugs scandal with the daughter of Olympic gold medallist and former senator Nova Peris testing positive.

    Sprinter Jessica Peris was forced to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games selection trials on the Gold Coast after a banned substance was detected in a sample taken by ASADA.

    It’s not known what substance is involved and confirmation is expected within days after testing of the B sample.

    Peris, 27, had been on track to follow in her famous mother’s footsteps after showing significant improvement over the summer. ;)

    And the hypocrite David Culbert defended her today - He has no dignity.

    See what his stance is after the B sample comes back. Peris has lawyered up and making allegations of flawed process so it seems her defence won't be one of "accidental contamination". Culbert would be obliged to condemn her.

    Would be interesting to see how she goes in court given she has previously been described by a judge as an unreliable witness.

    This tells me she already expects the B sample to also be accidentally contaminated

    Don’t like putting it this way but the woman is clearly a loon.

    My post about Culbert being a hypocrite has wider connotations than his tweets or public comments - It goes to the integrity of his business, because he willingly accepts contracts to work for organisations such as the IAAF/UCI who have a poor record with doping, while publically having a strong anti-doping stance - That's why he is called a hypocrite.

    She will get her mum to articualte a response that will clear every thing up. Her knowledge and understanding of the ASADA process is impeccable.
    McDermott still has a chuckle over a beer thinking about her insightful questions.

    Should get 4 year ban like all first time drug cheats should and a life ban for a second offence.
    A 2 year ban is far too lenient in my book

    What makes you think she is trying to get a two year ban ? - To attract the full four year penalty, you must display no remorse, and be unable to prove the substance/s could be found in any contaminated supplements.

    Its simple because its shorter than 4.
    I still stick by my post that anybody found guilty of taking drugs should get a 4 year ban first and a life ban the second.

    Why should it be four years or not six years or eight years ? You may need to write to WADA and all their affiliated bodies and hope they are persuadd by your suggestion.

    4 years is usually the term for Olympics. An athlete receiving a 2 year ban may strategically position themselves for a suspension that finishes before an Olympics. Continue to pump themselves full of the juice then enter the National titles and gain entry to the next Olympics. Its a mockery imo and I agree with 4 year , hell make it 6 or 8 bans

    How long do you think drug cheats should get?

    First, I don't think Non-Olympic sports should be part of the WADA code - Second, I don't have a definitive view relating to penalties - Third, I believe doping is de rigeur,particularly in Olympic Sports - It's naive to think doping in sport is the exception, as opposed to the norm - Finally will add if you take a strict definition of CHEATING it's part and parcel of professional sport, and it's often done in understated ways.

    My understanding is banned athletes are still in the testing pool while serving their sanction - My memory tells me banned athletes have been busted while under suspension.

    Why don't you think that non olympic sports shouldn't be part of Wada?
    Surely your not in favour of drugs in sport are you?
