@Java - polako, ne podrzavam ni postove iznad, posto sportista moze imati pravo da uzima odredjena sredstva koja su na listi zabranjenih supstanci - kao lek i mnogi ih uzimaju. Recimo imas astmu ili neku drugu autoimunu bolest, pronizon je jedan od lekova koje ce lekar da ti propise. Slucajno je lek koji pomaze i kod aerobnih treninga, ali opet ne mogu da ti ga oduzmu ako imas zdravstveni problem... Tako da je ova vest budjava do srzi dok se ne cuje cela prica.
E sad na tvoj post, velike ali velike se mucke rade oko dopinga sa svih strana, u Americi pa nadalje, o korupciji da ne pricamo.
Evo mozda jedna od poznatijih prica - jos iz vremena kad sam ja kao dete jedva cekao da pocnu olimpijske igre:
The 100 m final at the 1988 Summer Olympics was one of the most sensational sports stories of the year and its dramatic outcome would rank as one of the most infamous sports stories of the century. Johnson won in 9.79 s, a new world record, while Lewis set a new American record with 9.92 s. Three days later, Johnson tested positive for steroids, his medal was taken away and Lewis was awarded gold and credited with a new Olympic record.
In 2003, Wade Exum, the United States Olympic Committee's director of drug control administration from 1991 to 2000, gave copies of documents to Sports Illustrated which revealed that some 100 American athletes failed drug tests from 1988 to 2000, arguing that they should have been prevented from competing in the Olympics but were nevertheless cleared to compete. Before showing the documents to Sports Illustrated Exum tried to use them in a lawsuit against USOC, accusing the organization of racial discrimination and wrongful termination against him and cover-up over the failed tests. His case was shortly dismissed by the Denver federal Court for lack of evidence. The USOC claimed his case "baseless" as he himself was the one in charge of screening the anti-doping test program of the organization and clarifying that the athletes were cleared according to the rules.
Among the names of the athletes was Lewis. It was revealed that he tested positive three times at the 1988 Olympics Trials for minimum amounts of pseudoephedrine, ephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, banned stimulants and bronchodilators also found in cold medication and due to the rules his case could lead to disqualification from the Seoul Olympics and from competition for six months. The levels of the combined stimulants registered in the separate tests were 2 ppm, 4 ppm and 6 ppm.
Lewis broke his silence on allegations that he was the beneficiary of a drugs cover-up, admitting he had tested positive for banned substances but claiming he was just one of "hundreds" of American athletes who were allowed to escape bans, concealed by the USOC. Lewis has now acknowledged that he failed three tests during the 1988 US Olympic trials, which under international rules at the time should have prevented him from competing in the Seoul games. Former athletes and officials came out against the USOC cover-up. "For so many years I lived it. I knew this was going on, but there's absolutely nothing you can do as an athlete. You have to believe governing bodies are doing what they are supposed to do. And it is obvious they did not," said former American sprinter and 1984 Olympic champion, Evelyn Ashford.
Na sve strane je haos u sportu sto se tice ilegalnih supstanci, necu ni da pominjem bodybuilding ili weight lifting ili strongest man takmicenje, gde je u drugoj seoskoj ligi 100% takmicara pod teskim steroidima...
