Gold medallist Roberts ingested banned substance after passionate kisses

Gold medallist Roberts ingested banned substance after passionate kisses

Because she had problems swallowing pills, Salazar took apart the capsules and swallowed the medicine inside with water.

Gil Roberts has been cleared of doping after the Olympic gold medallist was found to have ingested a banned substance through kissing his girlfriend. Instead, it got into his body through the power of love.

Roberts' girlfriend, Alex Salazar, was taking the drug Moxylong for a sinus infection, ESPN reported.

According to the report, Salizar met up with Roberts when she was back in the country on the same day he was visited for out-of-competition testing.

The woman, Alex Salazar, continued to take the medicine when she returned to the USA, breaking the capsule apart and pouring its contents into her mouth before swallowing with water. The arbitrator upheld Roberts' contention that the drug was in his system due to the frequent and passionate kissing of his girlfriend.

"Roberts could not count the number of times they kissed between 1 p.m. and the doping control officer's arrival [at 4:07 p.m.]", Thomas wrote.

"Thus, for Roberts, it must have been like lightning out of a clear blue sky for him to learn that by kissing his girlfriend this time that he was exposing himself to a prohibited substance". Roberts was cleared last month, although the kissing background detail was only revealed this week.

Roberts, who had been provisionally suspended, has since competed in the 400m at last month's USA track and field championships, in which he qualified for August's World Championships in London by finishing second in 44.22 seconds, behind Fred Kerley.
