Glycerol now on WADA 2015 prohibited list

Not as a performance enhancer but as a masking agent. A lot of people have used glycerol (glycerine) as a method for water retention during the marathon. Apparently WADA is more concerned with it as a potential EPO masker. I wonder if this helps mask micro-dosed levels of EPO. Interesting.
