Perhaps Reebok should offer up endorsement contracts to the bottom three finishers, then. Someone on the couch thread pointed out the striking differences in appearance between the top 3 and bottom 3.
As I'm not a fitness professional, what I'm wondering is: Is it possible for a trained (not beginner) female competitor to put on that kind of mass in a year's time (and still stay relatively lean) without the use of PEDs? Do women on average produce enough testosterone? For the record, I have no problems with PEDs, and am not for a second suggesting anyone at the Games used them.
And speaking of the Games, were there any reported cases of Rhabdo? Any SLAP tears or ruptured Achilles tendons?
