This one stinks a bit. Classic homer decision. Should consider taking this one forward to CAS.

Agree with the first part. However not Usada's decision - they charged him after all, and they wouldn't have done that if they knew about this technicality

Surely a failure to file is a different issue to a failure not to appear. Seems bizarre - they made three visits in 10 months - missed them all. when he filed, or didn't is a separate issue.

Is the issue that the policy allows the athlete to record a whereabouts failure at any time in the quarter (Q2 in this case), but to assign it to April 1? Irrespective of when it happens, the athlete can record a failure in 3 months and funnel it all backwards to one day? Nuts

Exactly my point - the backdating issue should only - ONLY - be relevant if there was a technical, technocratic offence of repeatedly failing to file. like filing taxes late. But this isn't just that, it's the actual offence, of Missing. The. Bloody. Tests. Tax evasion.

USADA seem to have interpreted WADAs guidance that if you miss a test in June, you can blame a filing mistake in April, and have it treated as an April miss - but that's bonkers, and I think it's wrong - I think that logic only applies to filing offences, not actual missed tests

Surely this is a chance for certain athletes to strategically work around those dates
