WTF! Stop saying he's being suspended for 2 years. He's not, he's being suspended for one year. Maybe because of the dates he's having to miss two world team trials but he's being suspended for one year. Having taken everything under the sun when I competed, I can promise you this. He knew exactly what he was doing and if it wasn't helping in some capacity such as strength, conditioning or weight cut, he wouldn't have taken it.

I lack the first hand experience but the idea that these guys will simply pop meds with no thought to drug testing seems ludicrous on its face. If they are doing that, I feel no pity. Stupidity doesn’t deserve it.

While this is literally accurate, the effective ban is two years for someone who doesn't care about anything other than world medals. JO isn't trying to win random tournaments as a career goal. He's past that phase and has already done that. If he can't have the chance to make two consecutive world teams, it might as well be a 2-year ban.

He did "make" a world team and looked great doing it last year. It's not that unreasonable if the goal is to send our best guy to worlds. JO might be that guy.

 

No he didn't. He won the US Open and had a bye into WTT finals. (before everything went down).

Why should they change the dates for one athlete? Should they do the same for injuries?

 

Change what date?  Who suggested anything about changing a date?

 

Keep up.

At this time he is suspended for the first day of the final qualifying event for WTT. For him to wrestle at WTT they would have to change the date of the last qualifying event to be outside his suspension window. They could do that by pushing the US Open back a week or by adding an additional qualifier they were not planning on having. Either way - for Oliver to be eligible for WTT the date of the last qualifying event will need to change.

You are the only person who suggested they change the date of the US Open.  There is no chance that happens.

 

If they had a last chance qualifier in May, as they have for many years, that would not be for JO in particular -- although he would clearly benefit.

 

And the other way he could be there is if they implemented an optional wildcard entry at each weight.  This would not be unprecedented. 

 

In neither of those options is there a date changing for an existing event.
