What time did they turn up?

Marc always told funny stories about getting to know his doping control guy and recognizing the car parked out on the street, as it was pretty distinctly not one of the neighbors out so early in the morning.

My testing slot is 7:00-8:00 am. He knocked on the door (he has the access code downstairs) at 06:55 am. So, it was not too bad and it goes quite quick anyway in early morning with urine sample (+blood this time). This guy coming from Stockholm was great with lot of funny stories.

Marc got tested this week too for the first time in years. He doesn't fill out an AWF anymore, so they show up at his work. This is always a bit embarrassing because he has to let patients wait while he does the testing. But he also always says he's glad they test him. When he filled out the AWF's they would come around 6am and I would always open the door in my pj's;)

In fact, you are REALLY happy to see them, because it also means he made it up to the right door, and you have filled ADAM software well enough. Not always as easy as it seems!

Oh that's not too bad then if you know that that is the sort of time they could turn up :P

Vinogradov Mike:
Actually, 1 out-of-competition testing per year is not enough. It is just wasting of time and resources. Biological passport is also missing for all top-runners (only Swiss made it for few O-runners). IOF anti-doping policy is just a disaster.
