  Positive Drugs Tests “Capped” At 12 During Los Angeles 1984, Says Former IAAF VP

A former International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) vice-president has alleged that the number of positive drugs tests at the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984 was “capped” at 12 despite a higher number of failures.

Ollan Cassell, a member of the American gold medal winning 4×400 meters relay team at Tokyo 1964 who later served 23 years at the world athletics body, made this revelation. Cassell remarked the decision formed part of a pact between then IAAF head Primo Nebiolo and Juan Antonio Samaranch, former International Olympic Committee (IOC) President.

The former International Association of Athletics Federations vice-president also said the decision by Samaranch and Nebiolo was reportedly taken in order to give an impression to everyone that both bodies were taking a strong anti-doping stance while avoiding too big of a scandal. Cassell said he had been warned by Nebiolo about the decision he and Samaranch had made about capping the number of positive drug tests in Los Angeles Olympics at a dozen. The former IAAF VP further added Nebiolo told him they had done it ‘to protect the Olympics and the USA’ so there would be no scandal.

The allegations of Cassell fit with claims in the past about the covering-up of failed drug tests at Los Angeles 1984. Arnold Beckett, a former member of the IOC Medical Commission, had remarked that someone had broken into the hotel of Commission chair Prince Alexandre de Merode and shredded the documents. Merode admitted sampled had been destroyed but claimed this was due to accidental haste by organizers rather than deliberate wrongdoing.

Allegations of a similar nature have also been made by officials working within the UCLA facility where drug testing took place.

Craig Krammerer, one laboratory official, said five of the nine allegedly covered-up failures were for anabolic steroids, with the remainder for either Testosterone or Ephedrine.

In total, 1,502 athletes were tested at the Los Angeles Games and twelve positives were reported across the sports of athletics, volleyball, weightlifting, and wrestling. The list included two silver medal winners in Swedish wrestler Tomas Johansson and Finnish 10,000 meters runner Martti Vainio. The remaining athletes subsequently admitted to blood doping during the Games, although this was not made illegal until 1985.

Ollan Cassell also praised the present-day IAAF for their tough stance to recent Russian doping scandals that also involves allegations that samples have been tampered with. Cassell remarked the IAAF had moved in the strongest direction toward Rio by suspending the All-Russia Athletic Federation. The former IAAF VP criticized the International Olympic Committee for not taking a similar stance and remarked he thinks the IOC is the one that came out looking the weakest on drugs by not taking a firmer stance against the Russians. Cassell also said it seems to him like the IAAF is going to be the one that’s going to have to sort of lead this movement of stronger drug testing and make sure that clean athletes are the ones that are participating in international competitions.

Jamaican Athletes Face Bans For Alleged Doping

@Dominique Blake, 4x400m relay star, and Ricardo Cunningham, national 800m senior champion, would be facing the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) on October 17 over doping violations returned by the pair at Jamaica’s senior championships in June.

Cunningham tested positive for pseudoephedrine and the substance found in the sample of Blake was not named, according to the Jamaica Observer.

Blake, who has previously served a nine-month ban for testing tested positive for ephedrine at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana on June 24, 2006, sent a representative and Cunningham appeared in person at the initial hearing in Kingston on October 2, 2012. The 25-year-old Blake represented Jamaica at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Turkey in March, where she qualified for the semi-finals of the 400m and also competed at the CAC Games and Commonwealth Games in 2010.

Blake, who finished sixth in the Women’s 400m final in 51.83 seconds, as a relay alternate but did not compete and criticized her omission from the preliminary rounds of the women’s mile relay on August 10 on team politics. Blake, the 2008 NCAA national champion and 2012 World Indoor semi-finalist in 400 m (Istanbul, Turkey), competed on the European circuit from July-August 2008 and was the Hampton Games 2010 silver medalist. She is also a three-time Penn State record holder, Big Ten championship record holder, and six-time Big Ten champion, besides being a seven-time NCCA Championship participant. At the 2006 national outdoors, Blake was a member of the fifth-place mile relay team at the NCAA East Regional Championships that clocked a school-record 3:34.92. At the Big Ten Championships (2007 indoors), Dominique Blake was a member of the gold-medal winning 4×400-meter relay for the second-straight year that set a new conference record (3:37.70).

Cunningham declared that he had taken an over-the-counter medication that may have contained pseudoephedrine, a substance found in most cold medicines. Recently, Cunningham won the men’s 800m final with a time of 1:48.00 seconds at the JAAA/SVL Jamaica Senior National Championships at the National Stadium in Kingston wherein Aldwyn Sappleton finished second in 1:48.43 seconds, while Darryll Oliver was 3rd in 1:48.98 seconds.

Cunningham recorded a personal- and season best-time of 1:49.99 in the 800-meters to finish in the top 15 at Tennessee’s Sea Ray Relays at 2003 Outdoor and posted a season-best time of 3:09.26 to finish third in the IC4As in the 800. Named Sophomore of the Year in 2002, Cunningham was the bronze medalist in the 800 meters at the 1999 Carifta Games. Hraduated from Vere Technical High School in 2000 and from SW Christian Community College in 2002 and competed in soccer for three years at Vere Technical High School in Jamaica.

Just before the Beijing Olympics in 2008, sprinter Julien Dunkley tested positive. In 2009, 200m specialist and 2001 World Championships silver medalist Christopher Williams returned a positive finding at a meet in Europe and was banned for two years. Five athletes returned positive tests after consuming a sport drink during Trials in 2011. The five — Yohan Blake, Allodin Fothergill, Sheri-Ann Brooks, Marvin Anderson, and Lanceford Spence — were all banned for a period of three months. Last November, former Jamaican relay world champion Steve Mullings was given a lifetime ban from competing in athletics after a second doping offence.

  Maradona Sacked By Al Wasl

diego maradona 1United Arab Emirates club Al Wasl has sacked former Argentina World Cup-winning captain Diego Maradona after the team failed to win any silverware under Maradona during his season at the helm. The team was knocked out of the UAE league cup at the semi-final stage by Al Ahli, the eventual winners and even ailed to progress past the second round of the President’s Cup under Maradona.

Judgment of the former Argentina captain at Al Was had been questioned through his decision to select goalkeeper Majid Naser despite him being in the middle of a 17-match domestic ban for slapping Al Ahli coach Quique Sanchez Flores after a match between the two sides.

“Following a meeting held by the board of directors of Al Wasl Football Company to evaluate the technical staff of Al Wasl under the leadership of coach Diego Maradona, it was decided to terminate the services of coach Diego Maradona and his technical staff,” a club statement said.

Considered by many as the most gifted football players, the association of Maradona with controversies is not new. During the 1994 World Cup, he was sent home after failing to clear a drug test for ephedrine doping, which he claimed were due to the power drink Rip Fuel given by his personal trainer. An excellent strategist and a team player, Diego Armando Maradona Franco is rated very highly by many experts, football critics, former players, current players and football fans.

Maradona is the only player in the history of football to set world-record contract fees twice. During his illustrious career, he played for Argentinos Juniors, Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, Sevilla and Newell’s Old Boys and earned 91 caps and scored 34 goals while playing for Argentina. He reached the peak of his professional career at Napoli and elevated the team to the most successful era in its history by helping the team win their only Serie A Italian Championships in 1986/87 and 1989/1990, placing second in the league twice, in 1987/88 and 1988/89. The #10 jersey of Napoli was officially retired in honor of the football player and his achievements during his career at Napoli.

Maradona Goal of the Century – Víctor Hugo Morales commentary – Argentina-England 2-1 1986

Diego is the only player to win the Golden Ball at both the FIFA U-20 World Cup and FIFA World Cup, in 1979 and 1986. Diego Maradona played in four FIFA World Cup tournaments and won Argentina the 1986 World Cup against West Germany in the final and was even awarded the Golden Ball award as the tournament’s best player. In the quarterfinals of this World Cup, Maradona scored the “Hand of God” and a 60 m (66 yd) goal while dribbling past five England players (Peter Beardsley, Steve Hodge, Peter Reid, Terry Butcher, and Terry Fenwick) and goalkeeper Peter Shilton, which was voted “The Goal of the Century” by FIFA.com voters in 2002.

Diego Maradona published his autobiography Yo Soy El Diego (“I am The Diego”) in 2000 that became an instant bestseller and won FIFA Player of the Century award in 1999. The Times, a London based newspaper, selected Maradona as number 1 in The Greatest 10 World Cup players of all time on 22 March 2010.

  Masteron Enanthate- Drostanolone Enanthate

The world of professional sports does not provide endless opportunities to sportsmen and this is the reason why they need to deliver as and when asked and this “invincibility” is more or less accomplished by those into sports by using performance enhancing drugs such as Masteron enanthate.

Having an anabolic androgenic ratio of 62:25 and an active life of nearly 8 days, Masteron enanthate (also known as Drostanolone enanthate) is best used in doses of 400-600 mg per week by men and 100 mg per week by women. It has the molecular weight of 360.5356 g/mol at the base and can be detected over a period of three months. The anabolic steroid is commonly stacked with long estered cutting cycle steroids such as Trenbolone Enanthate, Clenbuterol, Ephedrine, T3, growth hormone, IGF, and Testosterone.

This steroid is commonly made the part of a pre-contest or an off-season program for adding new muscles while retaining existing muscles. The derivative of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), Masteron enanthate does not convert to estrogen and has the potential to inhibit blocking the conversion of free testosterone to estrogen by aromatization pathway besides enhancing the active free testosterone levels in the circulation. In addition to these advantages, Drostanolone enanthate is also admired for negating the side effects of estrogens and promoting fine muscle details being accentuated like striations. Furthermore, Masteron enanthate is also beneficial to draw out water from between the skin and the muscle to result in a very cut look at low body fat levels.

Last but not the least, Masteron enanthate is a potent anabolic steroid and must be used for legal purposes and under strict medical regulation.

  Masteron Enanthate

If you want to lose weight and gain solid muscles but concerned about estrogenic side effects such as gynecomastia, Masteron enanthate is an excellent choice for you. Use of this highly potent anabolic steroid is associated with dramatic and sustaining improvements in terms of body strength and fat loss.

The anabolic steroid is commonly used by sportsmen, especially those into body building and strength athletics, during a pre-contest or off-season program to add or retain size. Originally, Masteron enanthate was developed as an anti-estrogen (under the name Masteril) to treat breast cancer and was administered in a combination with Nolvadex but is now considered one of the most “exotic” androgenic anabolic steroids. This derivative of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) does not convert to estrogen and is very effective in blocking the conversion of free testosterone to estrogen by the pathway of aromatization. By doing this, it marginally increases the amounts of active free testosterone in the circulation and even negates the side effects of estrogens.

Masteron enanthate, which is also known as Drostanolone enanthate, has the chemical name of 17beta-Hydroxy-2alpha-methyl-5alpha-androstan-3-one Enanthate. It has an active life of approximately eight days and can be detected up to three months. Masteron enanthate has an anabolic androgenic ratio of 62:25.

The recommended dose of Masteron enanthate is 400-600 mg per week for men and 100 mg per week for women. It is generally stacked with long estered cutting cycle steroids such as Trenbolone Enanthate, Clenbuterol, Ephedrine, T3, growth hormone, IGF, and Testosterone. Available in oral and injectable forms, this anabolic steroid can be easily and affordably purchased online with or without a medical prescription.

One of the best things about Masteron enanthate is that it promotes fine muscle details being accentuated like striations and is very effective drawing out water from between the skin and the muscle to offer a very cut look at low body fat levels.

The smirking Anders Breivik, who stunned Norway with mass murders, was taking large quantities of mind-altering chemicals.

Breivik was high on stanozolol, an anabolic steroid, and with an amphetamine-like drug called ephedrine, plus caffeine to make the mixture really fizz.

So had Michael McDermott, culprit of the 2000 Wakefield massacre in Massachusetts, Kip Kinkel, responsible for a 1998 murder spree in Oregon, John Hinckley, who tried to murder President Ronald Reagan in 1981.
