Unfortunate article abstract – disqualified by gender05 Aug 2006
From this evening’s SMH website comes this abstract/second-level headline “Floyd Landis likely to lose Tour de France title and has been sacked from his team, after testing positive for testosterone.”
Yes, he is male, yes, it was a male contest. This is why arbitarily dropping adjectives to achieve headline-friendly ‘sentences’ is a bad idea. It originally read “excessive testosterone”, but now appears that all the other cyclists were, erm, somewhat lacking.
