Roberts cleared after kisses caused failed doping test

1:20 | More Sports         These athletes are raking in the most endorsement money

That's what happened to U.S. Olympic runner Gil Roberts, who an arbiter recently ruled had ingested the masking agent probenecid unknowingly by "frequently and passionately" kissing his girlfriend just hours before his March 24 test.

In March, he tested positive for a drug called probenecid, and in May, the United States Anti-Doping Agency said Roberts' B sample also tested positive for the masking agent. "Roberts has met his burden of proof".

The case went to an arbitrator in June.

Roberts' girlfriend had received a sinus infection medication labeled Moxylong from a local "chemist" during a trip to India with her family, and was still taking the medicine upon her return to the United States.

Salazar continued her medication after returning to the US and reuniting with her sweetheart.

The woman, Alex Salazar, continued to take the medicine when she returned to the US, breaking the capsule apart and pouring its contents into her mouth before swallowing with water. Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber blamed his positive drug test before the 2016 Olympics on kissing a woman who had consumed cocaine, and in 2009, tennis player Richard Gasquet said he was partying and kissed a woman with cocaine on her lips.

"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 testified that he did not know Salazar was taking the medicine and he was unaware that kissing could lead to him ingesting any banned substance.

"Roberts could not count the number of times they kissed between 1 p.m. and the doping control officer's arrival [at 4:07 p.m.]", Thomas wrote.
