Hope Solo tested positive for a prohibited substance last month, but can still compete in the Olympics. She tested for Canrenone, which is a diuretic and outlawed by the Olympics…
Long story short, her doctor gave her meds for her period that contained a diuretic and that’s outlawed by the Olympics. As soon as she found out the meds were illegal, she worked with the USADA to fix the situation and is now allowed to represent the USA in the Olympics. She said, ”I took a medication prescribed by my personal doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did not know contained a diuretic. Once informed of this fact, I immediately cooperated with USADA and shared with them everything they needed to properly conclude that I made an honest mistake, and that the medication did not enhance my performance in any way. As someone who believes in clean sport, I am glad to have worked with USADA to resolve this matter and I look forward to representing my country at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.”
Moral of the story is if you’re an Olympian on the rag, suck it up!!! It’s just an orphanage of unborn children that’s being shed, no big deal.
