Kinda the same way Gatlin thanked USADA for doing such a great job after he won the 100m @ US nat's this year (2006)? He had already known he tested positive, ran the race, and thanked USADA. What a great guy… lol.
I was thinking the EXACT same thing. Marion Jones almost shot herself in the foot too when she released an autobiography (~2 years ago) that has a letter in the first couple pages denying drug use and denouncing those who do.
