The TUE was issued for a pollen allergy http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/...ce-team-sky-ethical-line-report-a8241186.html It's only recently there's been reference to asthma, previously it was for an allergy. Now pollen allergy and asthma are closely related so in some ways it's understandable BUT the persistent inconsistencies begin to stack up. The problem is you can't legally have a TUE to prevent a condition (allergic reaction) but you can for an exiting condition, asthma. ICBW but I don't think I am, at the time the funding from BC wasn't dependent on an athletes outside earnings as it is now, so yes all the athletes in the Olympic team were being part funded by BC. Incidentally BW was never paid wages, he wasn't an employee, he was a contractor.
