Seems harsh to me for cocaine, given it's not a PED and his absolute admision of guilt (refused to get B test tested).
Remember this is the same ban as someone who actively takes steroids and other PEDs with a view to cheating.
But then he's a role model, very high profile and so he's being made an example of. But I'm not sure who to. Not to the gen pop in terms of cocaine use, but to other sporting people, and surely a 1 year ban with the ability to continue to train and with some mandatory community service promoting the game / anti drugs to kids would have been in everyone's best interests?
