Bravo to you Vincent! What a gracious and humble post you made, especially given the crushing disappointment that you feel right now. I hope you will look back and see just a bump in your long road.

Very sorry to hear this. One does wonder…
I certainly hope a neutral authority administered multiple tests.
It would certainly advantage a certain other country to get rid of as many U.S. competitors as possible.
Best wishes to Vincent.
