Zhang Wenxiu, women’s hammer throw champion from China, has been stripped of gold medal at the Asian Games after she failed a drugs test.

Zhang’s positive test is the first time that a Chinese athlete has tested positive during an Asian Games since Hiroshima 1994 Games. During 1994 Games, 11 members of the Chinese swimming and cycling teams who won a total of 15 titles between them were disqualified after they failed tests for Dihydrotestosterone.

The 28-year old won her third straight Asian Games title on September 28 by making a Games record of 77.33 meters. According to a statement by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), the pre-competition urine specimen of the Olympic bronze medalist collected on September 26 was found to contain Zeranol and its metabolite (ß-Zeranol), a prohibited substance in the WADA [World Anti-Doping Agency] Prohibited List 2014. Zeranol, a semi-synthetic estrogenic veterinary drug with growth-promoting properties, is a non-specified substance under category S1.2, “Other Anabolic Agents”.

The statement was signed by Dr M Jegathesan, chairman of the OCA Medical Committee and Anti-Doping Commission. It added that the hammer throw champion has been disqualified from the competition as well as these Games and as such his accreditation cancelled and her gold medal has been withdrawn. The statement added these findings will now be forwarded to the competitor’s national authorities, the Asian Athletics Association and the IAAF [International Association of Athletics Federations], and the World Anti-Doping Agency for further action on their part as per sanctions concerning eligibility.

Zhang won the Olympic bronze medal at Beijing 2008 and also won the hammer title at Doha 2006 and Guangzhou 2010. She also won bronze medals at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships at Osaka in 2007, Daegu 2011, and Moscow 2013. Wang Zheng, the compatriot of Zhang, who finished second, is now set to be elevated to gold while Bala Manju of India will now win silver and Masumi Aya of Japan will be promoted to bronze.

Tajikistan footballer Khurshed Beknazarov was the first athlete to be banned during the Incheon 2014 Asian Games. The 20-year-old defender tested positive for Methylhexaneamine, according to an announcement by the Olympic Council of Asia. The adverse urine sample was collected on September 14 shortly after 1-0 victory of Tajikistan over Singapore.

Wushu player Tai Cheau Xuen was then stripped of her Asian Games gold medal after she tested positive for banned drugs. The 22-year-old tested positive for Sibutramine, the banned stimulant (often found in diet and slimming pills) that prompted the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) to take away the gold medal she had won in the nanquan and nandao all-round event. Xuen was disqualified from the Games and her accreditation was canceled. Findings of her positive drug test will be forwarded to the International Wushu Federation, the Wushu Federation of Asia, and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Indonesia’s Juwita Niza Wasni will be promoted to gold and Wei Hong of China will take silver and Ivana Ardelian Irmanto of Indonesia will take the bronze position.

Steroids and Sports sharing an unchallenged relationshipAnabolic steroids and sports are sharing an unchallenged and successful relationship despite tall claims and measures by doping and government authorities. The fact that steroids allow sportsmen to realize their true potential and aim for greater heights is something that brings sportsmen to take on steroids.

 While some individuals may want to spread bad words about anabolic steroids, the underlying truth is that steroids do not cause any harm unless abused or of a low-grade quality. They are best taken under medical guidance and as per recommendations so that top-notch performance is easily attainable.

Relationship between steroids and sport under no threatDespite tall claims from WADA and government officials, one can easily say that the relationship between steroids and sport is under no threat and is growing more than ever. The fact that steroids are being sold over the Internet easily and without a medical prescription is something that says it all.

However, what most of us are ignorant about is the fact that steroids are not bad for any of us and actually help in treating severe health complications and adding “flavor” to professional sporting events.

Recent studies have been very clear in suggesting that the use of anabolic steroids in the world of medicines is not without a valid reason. Thousands of people have benefited from steroids and people who say steroids are bad or harmful to health must first read those study papers.

Relationship between sports and steroids goes stronger than everThe relationship between steroids and sports is getting stronger and stronger with each passing day despite the fact that sports and anabolic steroids are condemned by former sportsmen, sporting bodies, and even some of the steroid-using sportsmen of the past.

Even though steroids are considered to be totally harmful by some, the truth is that they are not harmful and does not bring any side effects with them.

If one has a close look at the abovementioned facts, it can be easily derived that anabolic steroids are nothing but exceptional products that have no side effects until lack of knowledge or over-dependence leads to steroid abuse.

  Use of Anabolic Steroids in Sports

Use of Anabolic Steroids in SportsMost of us do not seem to have a clear understanding when it comes to use of anabolic steroids in sports or bodybuilding.

Let us find what anabolic steroids are and how they benefit professional athletes and bodybuilders to excel at competitive events.

From Entertainment.howstuffworks.com:

Anabolic Steroids
A steroid is a chemical substance derived from cholesterol. The body has several major steroid hormones – cortisol and testosterone in the male, estrogen and progesterone in the female. Catabolic steroids break down tissue, and anabolic steroids build up tissue. Anabolic steroids build muscle and bone mass primarily by stimulating the muscle and bone cells to make new protein.

Athletes use anabolic steroids because they increase muscle strength by encouraging new muscle growth. Anabolic steroids are similar in structure to the male sex hormone, testosterone, so they enhance male reproductive and secondary sex characteristics (testicle development, hair growth, thickening of the vocal cords). They allow the athlete to train harder and longer at any given period.

Anabolic steroids are mostly testosterone (male sex hormone) and its derivatives. Examples of anabolic steroids include:

* Testosterone
* Dihydrotestosterone
* Androstenedione (Andro)
* Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
* Clostebol
* Nandrolone

From the above information, it can be easily concluded that anabolic steroids are excellent options for any one who is expecting to deliver a top-class performance with dedicated efforts.

However, one thing that needs to be noted is that steroids must always be respected and never abused. This is because steroid abuse can lead to mild to serious health consequences.

Anabolic Steroids Have Caused Alarming Increase Of Premature BaldnessAnabolic steroids are known to produce several side effects including excessive sweating, insomnia, heightened aggression and male pattern hair loss. According to a leading hair clinic the premature baldness is becoming an alarming complaint among men who use designer drugs.

Optima Hair Specialists – which supplies advanced hair replacement systems – has seen a 60 percent increase in enquiries from men who have taken anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) and suffered early hair loss.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) has an adverse effect on hair follicles and is the main culprit behind hair loss. Recent studies have found that steroid drugs can increase the levels of DHT within the body and therefore accelerate hair loss.
