How vain it is to sit down to write when you haven't stood up to live?
Moroccan track star Mariem Alaoui Selsouli entered London2012 as the Olympic favorite to win the Women’s 1500m event. Today, she is stamped a ‘cheat’ having failed a drug test, positive for a banned diuretic known as furosemide. I actually remember watching Selsouli wow the crowd in Eugene at Track Town USA with a personal best 8min 34.37sec in the 3,000m back in June. Golden hopes squandered.
