How about this Olympian getting his drug test overturned after he failed it because he kissed his girlfriend? 

This is a wild story. USA gold medalist, Gil Roberts, was suspended in May by the USADA for a failed drug test. I’m sure he was promptly dragged through the mud, called a cheater and all that nonsense. But it turns out the only reason he failed the test was because he kissed his girlfriend: Roberts claimed that the substance entered his system through “frequently and passionately” kissing his girlfriend — who was treating a sinus infection with the medication Moxylong — ahead of the drug test. The arbitrator concluded that Roberts “had no idea that kissing his girlfriend could lead to his ingesting a prohibited substance. When he kissed her he did not remember the taste of medicine in her mouth. …Thus for Roberts it must have been like lightning out of a clear blue sky for him to learn by kissing his girlfriend this time that he was exposing himself to a prohibited substance. Roberts has met his burden of proof.” Congrats on the love making and congrats on the overturn.
