Possible Doping Does In Debbie Dunn’s Olympic Dreams? (Demo)

Fairmont Heights graduate, Debbie Dunn has withdrawn from Olympic competition after testing positive for excessive testosterone.

As a I sit here, growing older and hairier, contemplating when and not IF I’ll have electrolysis, I am stunned that any woman on the face of this earth would take in more testosterone than humanly needed to live within feminine reason.
Relay sprinter and Fairmont Heights High School graduate, Debbie Dunn, has withdrawn from the U.S. Olympic track team after testing positive for excessive testosterone.  Dunn ia originally from Jamaica and currently lives in Norfolk, Va.  She finished fourth in the 400 meters at Olympic trials, and was selected for the American relay pool.   D. Dunn is the 2010 world indoor champion at 400 meters.  In a statement issued Friday, she acknowledged a positive doping test and said she was withdrawing from the Olympics while the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency resolves the case.  From her statement:

“I have been informed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that a sample I gave at the U.S. Olympic Trials contains an elevated testosterone/epitestosterone level…While I work with USADA to resolve this matter, I am withdrawing from my relay pool position for the 2012 Olympic Games. I do not want any issue like this to distract from my teammates’ focus for the biggest meet of their lives. I wish Team USA best in London as I work toward resolving this matter.”

USADA CEO Travis Tygart said the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency is analyzing Dunn’s “B” sample, and that “USADA appreciates Ms. Dunn voluntarily removing herself” from the team while the case is pending. Tygart’s full statement:

 “In response to Ms. Dunn’s statements, USADA appreciates Ms. Dunn voluntarily removing herself from the Olympic team while the full facts surrounding her elevated T/E ratio and adverse carbon isotope ratio analysis (CIR) are evaluated. We are currently processing the B sample, and as in all cases all athletes are innocent until and unless proven otherwise through the established full, fair legal process which was approved by athletes, the U.S. Olympic Committee, and all Olympic sports organizations.”

No replacement was immediately named.
