Sprinter Deajah Stevens gets 18-month ban for missing doping tests.
On one occasion her phone ran out of battery power overnight, and another time she changed number six weeks earlier because of being harassed, the ruling stated.
“Despite our sympathy for the athlete, we have not been satisfied on a balance of probability that her behavior was not negligent,” the disciplinary panel said, noting the two previous whereabouts failures for Stevens.
“She should have been on red alert and conscious that she could not miss the next one,” the ruling said.
Seems fair to me.
