I feel she is being managed very poorly and I wish I could have written her denial for her.
The denial Dara Torres gave should have been more forceful and challenging to those accusing her via sordid headlines. She should have reiterated that WADA has a virtual blood bank of the blood samples she has given them leading up to the Olympics and that she has no problem having WADA compare her blood samples to the PEDs this MD has prescribed or had on his person when he was apprehended at the border.
That challenge in itself, and the exuded confidence of her denial is how she should have played it. She should have also thrown in that she is NOT sleeping with Tiger Woods simply to illustrate what poor journalism in taking place at her expense.
Also of note, despite that the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) asked WADA to ban the drug she is silently accused of taking and WADA refused is rarely mentioned outside the New York Times. (See the article link below.)
Here is a snippet from the New York Times article:
The Olympic swimmer Dara Torres said she sought out Dr. Galea to help diagnose the cause of continuing pain in her knee earlier this year. “He found a tear in my quad tendon that was undiagnosed,” Torres said in an e-mail message. “Excluding draining my knee, he has never treated me, but I did see his chiropractor who did soft-tissue work on my leg. That was the extent of my visit with him.”
Mr. Bailey, a retired Canadian sprinter, said Dr. Galea helped him in 1999, when he received treatment from him for a ruptured Achilles’ tendon, but did not receive any kind of injections.
