    I assume Stefan Stefanov is still Malaysian head coach as three of their lifters just went positive for stanozolol.

    IIRC the country is now at 10 sanctions with all open PDs and thus penalized for Tokyo.

    Are you even serious? We discussed this years ago on here. The study this is based on is useless to draw anything from because nobody dopes with a single test injection.

    Phil, can just an accusation with no other evidence result in this?

    The rumor mill is also saying there could be a potential USADA violation as well? Looks like that's a wrap for Burns' career unfortunately. Fantastic lifter, and I hope these accusations are not true.

    I have no facts regarding the details of this. Sounds as though it has gone beyond an accusation and there has been action based on some form of process. Seems not unlike a criminal conviction, which stands unless overturned on appeal. I was on the BOD when background checks were implemented (~7 years ago?) and they were controversial then, but given the systemic institutional abuses uncovered recently, this does not look good.

    I think the usada violation referred to another athlete who was listed prior to Burns. Basically a misread by some redditor named /americanweightlifting ?
