    Morocco's Mariem Alaoui Selsouli has been provisonally suspended from all competition in athletics after testing positive for the banned diuretic furosemide.
    Selsouli's sample was collected at a Diamond League meeting in Paris on July 6 and she has waived her right to the B analysis.
    Selsouli, the favourite for the women's 1500m gold medal at London 2012, has the right to request a hearing which would need to be held by the Moroccan Athletic Federation within the next three months.

    Apparently they have caught 100 or so cases in the run up to the Olympics.

    I expect there will be a stream of similar revelations to come.

    I'm afraid this is but a small sample of what's to come.

    It would appear that an analysis of the results from that sample would reveal more than a few dribblings not otherwise soaked up.

    It's just a trickle in the overall stream of things. Don't let yellow journalists piss you off.

    Not a chance. I'll shake 'em till they drip dry.

    They're usually targets of opportunity anyway, down there with the ciggy butts and you-wreath-ras.
