It's just sad, to get all the way to the Olympics and then something that should've been dealt with months ago comes back to bite you in the butt. They should've done something about this sooner, the Olympics are pretty much the pinnacle for a lot of athletes.

The guy was publicily warned and all because the World Anti-Doping Agency decided that wasn't enough for them was he banned.

I also find it strange that he'd been taking the medication and that he only tested positive for it once. I don't know if they test everyone or just winners or if it's random, but the whole thing seems kinda fishy. I mean he'd been taking the medication for about 6 years and it was just added to the list of no-no's last year and of all the times he was drug tested it showed up once? Weird.
