Olympian: 'Passionately' Kissing Girlfriend Caused Failed Drug Test

Gil Roberts Roberts won gold in the 4x400m relay at the Rio Olympic Games

But an arbitrator cleared the champ of charges he ingested a banned substance, conceding the drug got into his system exactly as Roberts says it did-through smooching with his girlfriend, reports Sports Illustrated.

A professional since 2009, Roberts was part of the United States' 4-by-400 relay team that won gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The case went to an arbitrator in June.

This is serious. Roberts is claiming that intense kissing led to his positive test back in March, according to Deadspin.

Putin hopes for further dialogue with Trump
Chuck Grassley, who chairs the Senate intelligence committee, told CNN the panel intends to ask Trump Jr.to testify. New details emerged Friday in the meeting between President Trump's eldest son and a Russian attorney.

As part of the evidence, the stepfather of Roberts' girlfriend said she was in India a few weeks before the March test and came down with a sinus infection. But because she had trouble swallowing pills, she took the medication by just swallowing the powder kept in the capsules. That included the day of the random doping test, when his urine sample was taken in the afternoon about three hours after she had last taken the medicine.

The report mentioned that Roberts had been "tested for almost a decade and had been found to be clean", while "the amount of probenecid found in his sample is too small to have a masking effect, nor was there any evidence that he had ingested probenecid from any other sources". Salazar was unsure how many times they kissed between when she took the medicine and when Roberts was tested.

"Roberts had dated Ms Salazar for two years and surely had kissed her before without being charged with a doping violation", the report said. "Roberts has met his burden of proof", USADA said in its ruling, released earlier this week.
