Default UPDATED: Has VADA dropped Berto as a client yet?

Updated question in post at the end.



Conte is at least putting out a legit sounding cover story in as much as he says that the drug found would be the last drug a guy would take because it lingers in the system and hundreds of Olympians have been found to be tainted by cross contaminated products. So far we keep hearing "trace levels" as opposed to Peterson's "just under the 4/1 trigger for more accurate testing".

Peterson couldn't keep his mouth shut and his story went further south every time he opened it.

So far, we have Conte talking and nothing much from the others involved.

Seen this somewhere:
Mr. Berto issued this statement - “At the present time, I cannot explain the positive drug test, which was provided as part of a voluntary anti-doping program in which I agreed to participate. I know that I have never used any steroids or other banned substances, and I am investigating all possible causes of the positive test with my attorney Howard Jacobs. I have never cheated, and all of my success has come from hard work and dedication.”

Conte has the connections to VADA so he knows the protocols they use. I find it hard to believe this would be on him. Stranger has happened though.

Berto Speaks:

Mr. Berto issued this statement - “At the present time, I cannot explain the positive drug test, which was provided as part of a voluntary anti-doping program in which I agreed to participate. I know that I have never used any steroids or other banned substances, and I am investigating all possible causes of the positive test with my attorney Howard Jacobs.

I'm inclined to give Conti the benefit of the doubt considering the amount of ridicule that he's been subjected to from his past endeavors. It would be incredibly audacious for him to knowingly provide one of his athletes with a banned substance knowing that he and Berto are under the microscope of random testing.

Yeah, I'm kinda waiting for more on this one before passing judgement. If it truly was a trace amount there are other explanations.

VADA dropped Peterson almost immediately. His story continues to fall apart every time he opens his mouth. I've only heard VADA say so far that Berto tested positive for 'trace amounts' if I have that right?

Are they waiting for more info? Just not working on the weekend?

Breaking news looks like it could be "contamination, not intent". Let's hope.
