Insights[edit | edit source]
In 2011, Howard Jacobs said he's handled about 75 athlete drug cases.
He's questioning the lab's handling of Diana Taurasi's blood sample and pointed out that that lab in Turkey (also known as TUR) had been suspended by WADA. Two other teammates of Diana Taurasi refused to have their test go to that lab after the positive test results were reported.
