I have been doing a bit of reading about this ongoing situation like many of you have. One glaring issue keeps standing out to me that I do not understand.
From my reading, it is my impression that the USADA was created as an oversight committee to US athletes who wish to perform in the Olympics, and to make sure they are "drug compliant". I am confused as to how they have any jurisdiction in this Lance debacle when he hasn't attempted to be on the Olympic team?
Where do they have the right to open a case against him outside their oversight?
