In the podcast (goddammit i have too much time) he mentions that it was a salt supplement that an IM world champ has taken, which led him to believe that it was a clean product. He tested the product and found osterine out of a sealed container.
It sucks if truly inadvertent, but my sympathy is running low for this. Supplements testing positive (or using that as an excuse) has been in the news for a long time. As a professional you need to do your homework. How can you not know what Ostarine is? Did he train on this supplement everyday for years? How did trace amount in one batch lead to a positive?
The sheer lack of any drug testing in long distance triathlon, and the amount of ostarine "contaminated" positives, should show that the supplement industry is totally fucking bogus.
He had Herbalife as a sponsor on his kit, probably as a Wattie Ink team sponsor. I hope he has enough sense to not use that crap. If I used supplements, I wouldn't touch a Herbalife supplement with a ten foot pole attached to a remote control drone.
