Reading this doping story is just depressing for so many reasons.

A meeting takes place between Gonzalo Calisto and the IAU Trail World Championships medical commission, which is composed of two race doctors and a representative from the Athletes for Transparency Association. At the meeting, Calisto’s blood sample is labeled as “atypical” (rather than “abnormal,” the word used in the sports-doping community in reference to blood profiles which contain evidence of doping) because, though it presented “several abnormal values,” scientific literature states that “Ecuadorian origin” may explain those abnormal values and because Calisto argued that he has regular exposure to altitudes greater than 5,500 meters. A decision is made that Calisto may participate in the 2015 IAU Trail World Championships. (Information obtained from ITRA press release, shown below.)
