Mo Farah probably wishes he was a tennis player...

Why? Because this would not be a story in the tennis world: "Mo Farah missed two drug tests before London Olympics, putting 2012 double gold at risk"

  1. The guy is either deluded or he has a seriously bad PR team. Putting out normality nonsense on Twitter while the world ponders his doping.

    His excuse for dodging a test is just as feeble as Serena's.

    1. It really was feeble... Even if true (which I doubt), It is the athletes responsibility to make sure they can respond to DCOs when they come calling.

      IIRC,ADOs also have cell-phone contact info, so that DCOs can reach out to the athlete if they are not getting a response.........

  2. I remember when Rio Ferdinand got an 8 month ban and missed Euro 2004, because he missed one drug test, yet Farah misses two and there's no problem. Got to love the sporting double standards.

  3. How many times has Nike or a Nike sponsored athlete been at the centre of a doping scandal in the last few years? And Nike have a complete domination of the big names in tennis.

  5. Search for Nadal - he calls him out for being a known doper, but somehow thinks he's clean now. I disagree on the clean now part, but that's just me.
