Colombian Skaters Positive

何だか、遠い昔のように感じる World Championships Guarne 2010 ですが・・・今ごろ「ドーピング発覚!」と言われても、ちょっと遅くないですか。コロンビアが獲得した金メダル5個は剥奪され、公式順位は繰り上げられるみたいですが、あまりネットでは話題に成っていないようです。

Well it only scratches the surface & the Hemocrit level tests from the trials is alleged to have been docted up & all the readings 4 to 5 less than what was normal & done by individuals prior to the Trials & afterwards, with the trial tests well under what was normal. As a couple of years earlier when the 17 were caught, some of the good skaters could not carry on & do the selection trials & this lead to Andres Munoz for one missing the team.

Colombia is very good but when they win twice as many World titles as the rest of the world put together, ask yourself. Yes they had an Anti Joey Circuit, Altitude & deliberately eliminated some of there threats, but a lot of us very knowlegeable & experienced sports Science qualified coaches know some things do not add up. But it also fueled from within as Colombian people are telling us about an alleged smart doctor in Cali . Coaches are telling us they have 15 year olds comming to them asking for the same stuff the others are on.

One Colombian told my daughter that if they had blood tests, she would have had some medals waiting for her when she got home, it appears he could get a few more himself.

The cheating on & off the track costs other skaters & countries there government funding & lots of repercussions.

Lets hope the B samples do not get smashed this time.
