According to the UK press there has not been a second test yet.  He’s going with the old favourite “mislabelled/contaminated batch” defense, which has never worked for anyone not directly employed by Nike.

He could try and go the Virginia Fuchs/Laurence Vincent-Lapointe way, considering the contaminated batch and/or cancer medicine in the pasta sauce defenses probably won't hold with a variety of different substances :p

I’m actually wondering if he will go with poisoning instead if contaminated supplements can’t be proven.

Apparently the substances are all fairly similar chemically  and would be able to be taken in one dose.

I mean he use a lot of diplomatic langue to say nothing at all, but you can found some critics about important stakeholders.
