When the furnace began to bellow, everyone in the square looked up at the chimney with anticipation. The smoke started pouring out and it became clear, a decision has been reached. When the decision was announced, there was a collective inhalation of breath due to the shock. It is official, Floyd has been found guilty.
The panel, today voted 2 – 1 in favor of the USADA and against Floyd Landis. Floyd will most certainly appeal within the month to the CAS. The USADA is now 35 – 0 in its cases and one wonders if that points to a flawed system. As ESPN points out;
This was a nasty contest waged on both sides, with USADA attorneys going after Landis’ character and taking liberties in evidence discovery that wouldn’t be permitted in a regular court of law.
I’ll leave you to find your own peace with the decision.
