When you play with fire….you just may get burned

hardy Unless you have been living on another Planet you have heard that Jessica Hardy has tested positive for a drug called,Clenbuterol it is a selective beta-2 agonist/antagonist and bronchodilator. What this means is that Clenbuterol stimulates your beta-2 receptors.

USA Swimming now has issued a statement: USA Swimming has been notified of the anti-doping proceeding involving a U.S. athlete. The matter is being handled by USADA and we are hopeful that the matter will be resolved expeditiously. Out of respect for the hearing process, USA Swimming will have no further comment at this time.

Jessica has indorsed and promoted  a product called AdvoCar. She said that she has used 12 of the company’s products.

Could this be the problem? who knows?….In 2002 the NCAA banned the use of AdvoCare  product. I truly hope that her testing positive was a mistake…..But then again when you play with fire you just may get burned!
