A team of scientists from Norway have cast doubt on the results of Peter Bol’s recent doping case, claiming that the testing for EPO by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is subjective and can lead to misinterpretation of results.
Four esteemed biochemists and molecular biologists from Oslo, Jon Nissen-Meyer, Tore Skotland, Erik Boye, and Bjarne Osterud, have expressed their concerns regarding the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Laboratories’ testing of erythropoietin (EPO). They argue that the laboratories have an excessive reliance on subjective interpretation of test results, calling into question the accuracy of the tests.
Bol, who has been temporarily banned after testing positive for EPO, has criticized the testing system and is paying to have his B sample tested using two different methods in two separate laboratories.
His lawyer, Paul Greene, may call upon the Norwegian experts to analyze the results. The scientists have previously raised concerns about the subjectivity of EPO testing and have been involved in analyzing test results in similar cases.
