USADA, Jon Drummond's lawsuit is "baseless", from EME News


FORT WORTH (USA): USADA has said that the lawsuit filed by Tyson Gay's former coach Jon Drummond, is "baseless", report USADA spokesperson Annie Skinner told Reuters; „Mr Drummond's baseless lawsuit against the US Anti-Doping Agency is an effort to circumvent the mandatory arbitration process established to protect the rights of all clean athletes, coaches and the integrity of competition, „Under the rules which were approved by athletes, the US Olympic Committee and all US sport federations, Mr Drummond will have the opportunity to have his case heard by a panel of independent arbitrators, who will ultimately weigh all evidence presented and determine the outcome of the case.„

(Editor's note: Not sure what else USADA could say. Obviously, Jon Drummond is taking seriously rumors that USADA wants him banned from coaching, per various reports in news media.)
