Anyone see this?
 
I just saw this posted over at T-Nation... Anyone know if this is legit? It's posted by reuters, so I'd guess it is.

Kinda sucks.

"The national federation's statement said the banned substance most likely reached the weightlifters' bodies through "contaminated" permitted recovery substances, such as proteins."

Come on... if we're really concerned about staying clean they'd check their supplements if it was an honest mistake. Or at least they should have.

Probably not though which majorly sucks. :\

legalize it all....keep the playing field even

Dave Van Skike 06-27-2008 01:03 PM

I'm shocked, shocked to find that there is doping going on here!

Derek Weaver 06-27-2008 01:56 PM

me too Dave... the mind has been boggled. I just think it sucks that the Bulgarians aren't going to be there.

Surprising it was an in house test that brought them down though...

Does that news lower the price of the Botev shoe that Gwen Sisto is peddling?

If the Bulgarian weightlifting program is anyhting like pro cycling, I would bet they are testing everyday, twice on sundays to make sure they BEAT the test. I suspect that something went wrong and they knew they screwed thsi time around and took the direct approach.

Hopefully, not -- there's a minor scandal in Casey Burgener was competing for the 3rd US mens slot, which was promised, then taken away. Hopefully, with the Greeks and Bulgarians out, we can get that third slot for real.

I don't believe it. Anyone can look like this with good diet and exercise.


Derek Weaver 06-28-2008 10:18 AM

Well yeah, of course if you eat right and do your overhead squats you can look like that.
