The Herald reports:
Cricketer Jesse Ryder tested positive for a performance-enhancing stimulant, RadioLive reported this morning.
If there was a cricketer who’d you guess was most likely to test positive, Ryder would be high on many lists.
A hearing by Drug Free Sport NZ was reportedly held earlier this month during which his lawyers said he had taken a poorly-labelled weight-loss supplement.
“Unfortunately for Jesse he wanted to lose some weight so back in March [he] walked into a chemist and, as I understand it, grabbed a product from the chemist.
“He went home, did the due diligence on it in terms of jumping on Google, checking all the ingredients were safe for him to have and not on the wider banned list.”
I wonder if he has receipts from the chemist? And would not a professional sport like Cricket have one or more doctors and experts who you could contact to check?
