Thirsty Russians Leak Innocuous TUEs for Michelle Carter, DeAnna Price
Price's TUE for prednisone expired four days before the hammer final, in which she finished eighth. Prednisone is typically prescribed for allergies or breathing problems.
Two documents tied to Olympic shot put gold medalist and American record holder Michelle Carter were also in the hack: a rejected application for a TUE for "glucocorticoids and other beta-2 agonists," and then a TUE for the same. The specific drugs were methylprednisolone--usually prescribed for inflammatory diseases--and then what appears to be an asthma inhaler containing fluticasone furoate and vilanterol.
Glucocorticoids are only banned in-competition; everything in those two documents is a glucocorticoid except for Carter's inhaler. So athletes filed paperwork to take prescription drugs that are allowed outside of competition, and to get an asthma inhalers.
