NBA Should Study The Potential Benefits Of HGH, Says Dallas Mavericks Owner

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has remarked that the National Basketball Association (NBA), the premier men’s professional basketball league in the world, and other sport leagues should take a closer look at the prospective benefits of human growth hormone (HGH).

Cuban remarked the issue is not whether he thinks HGH should be used and the issue is that it has not been approved for expediting an athlete’s return. He also remarked one of the reasons why human growth hormone has not been approved is that there have not been studies done to prove the benefits of prescribing HGH for athletic rehabilitation or any injury rehabilitation that he is aware of and the product has such a huge public stigma that no one wants to be associated with it.

Cuban’s comments echoed the same he made this summer while making an appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” While discussing about the season-plus-long PED suspension of MLB player Alex Rodriguez, Cuban said it’s never been proven that HGH helps a baseball player or a basketball player and HGH is just been so tainted that players shouldn’t take it that it’s become banned for no good reason.

The Dallas Mavericks owner said he believes that professional sports leagues should work together and fund studies to determine the efficacy of HGH for rehabbing an injury and working together could lead us from the path of demonizing HGH and even testosterone towards a complete understanding. Cuban said it could allow us to make a data based decision rather than the emotional decision we are currently making and if it can help athletes recover more quickly, maybe we can extend careers and have healthier happier players and fans.

Under the 1990 Anabolic Steroids Control Act, use of human growth is illegal without a prescription. The distribution and possession of the hormone for any use other than the treatment of a disease or other recognized medical condition, where such use has been authorized by the Secretary of Health and Human Services and pursuant to the order of a physician is classified as a felony, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. HGH is classified as a performance enhancing drug by the World Anti-Doping Agency and International Olympic Committee and the agencies ban athletes from using it. Human growth hormone has the ability of promoting and increasing the synthesis of new protein tissues. It also has the potential of improving sleep patterns and sexual performance. HGH is also found beneficial for improving the quality and duration of heart and kidneys and is equally effective for building stronger bones. Supplementing human growth hormone can raise the metabolism and energy levels of an individual, which in turn makes people, feel energized and burn fat at a faster pace.

In the past, the National Basketball Association and the National Basketball Players Association agreed to the appointment of a panel of experts for studying the issue of human growth hormone testing as part of the 2011 collective bargaining agreement but no findings were reported as yet.

  Jamaica Has Never Carried Out A Blood Test, Claims ex-JADCO Chief

Jamaica Has Never Carried Out A Blood Test, Claims ex-JADCO Chief

The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission has never conducted a blood test, according to Renee Anne Shirley, the former head of JADCO. She also remarked the anti-doping body is so short-staffed that it risks botching the prosecution of country’s sport drug cheats.

The claims of JADCO’s executive director from July 2012 until February this year have already sparked an outcry and the World Anti-Doping Agency has initiated an investigation into the anti-doping program of Jamaica. This was after Shirley claimed that the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission carried out just one out-of-competition drug test in the five months leading up to the London 2012 Olympics. She also claimed that blood-testing kits that were delivered during her tenure at the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission have never been used.

Renee Anne Shirley remarked that athletes of the country were subjected only to urine tests by JADCO despite the fact that blood testing is the only way for detecting the presence of human growth hormone (HGH). Her comments have infuriated many who have accused her of tarnishing the international reputation of Jamaica with her accusations made public.

Shirley said we have a number of doping positives which are going to need to be managed because JADCO has to manage the results process and put the cases together to go to the hearings. She added her concern is that the staff is not in place to do this job and nobody is addressing this issue and this process must be managed and cases have to be put together with witness statements. The ex-JADCO head said we can’t afford for people in Jamaica to get off on a technicality because there was some breach in the processing of the paperwork. She went on to add that the Asafa Powell situation is also compounded by the criminal investigation that was going on in Italy and the details of the case are going to have to come forward and it’s going to have to be rigorously handled. She added JADCO on the legal side is going to have to present a case – what was found, all the details – and it needs to stand scrutiny in the eyes of the world because everybody’s going to be watching.

In response to Shirley’s serious allegations, WADA said it will visit the island country in January for carrying out an “extraordinary” audit of the activities of JADCO. Herb Elliot, the JADCO chairman, doubted the authenticity and accuracy of her claims and described Shirley as “demented” and “a Judas”.

In the last few months, Jamaican athletes have come under close scrutiny and many have been suspended for using banned substances. Last month, Jamaican international footballer Jermaine Hue was banned for nine months after he tested positive for a steroid while star track and field athletes Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson tested positive for stimulants. Three-time Olympic champion Veronica Campbell-Brown was among six track and field athletes who failed anti-doping tests. Olympic taekwondo player Kenneth Edwards became the eighth Jamaican athlete a few days back to test positive this year when he failed a drug test for a banned diuretic.

  Doping Probe Into Sydney Roosters Ceased

Doping Probe Into Sydney Roosters Ceased

The integrity unit of National Rugby League has ceased anti-doping investigations into the Sydney Roosters, according to NRL chief executive Dave Smith. Smith, speaking at the Men of League’s annual luncheon in Brisbane, remarked expected the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority would not pursue the matter further.

Smith added he did not expect the club or its players to face any sanction for a doping-related matter and added we became aware earlier in the year of the issues being reported (on the Sydney Roosters) and that information has been with ASADA for some time too.

Roosters went into trouble after some of their players returned elevated Human Growth Hormone (HGH) levels in an unsanctioned test. A report by Fairfax Media revealed that six Roosters players returned blood test results with elevated readings for HGH. The team, two days before their preliminary final against Newcastle, remarked that it had sacked a sports nutrition company when six of its players returned tests with elevated readings for HGH. Nubodi, the company, was hired at the end of last year for helping fine tune detox diets for players before being dismissed in January. Nubodi Group boss Sean Carolan has denied providing HGH to Sydney Roosters’ players and claimed his work with the team was confined to dietary advice based on blood pathology.

NRL chief operating officer Jim Doyle expressed concerns that the blood tests of players including Boyd Cordner, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, and Sam Moa ending up on the mobile phone of an alleged crime figure raised concerns.

In a statement, the Sydney Roosters remarked there had been “full voluntary disclosure” with the integrity unit over the matter and they had not received any contact from Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority about the matter. The statement also revealed that players have been regularly and extensively tested throughout the season by ASADA and the club has fully cooperated with the organization’s routine tests as is the case with all clubs and the team reinforce that the club maintains the absolute highest standards in its own policies and governance and, as a club, we have nothing to hide.

Roosters’ chief operating officer Brian Canavan however remarked that we were very unhappy that the extended (blood) testing was conducted. It was done without our knowledge. He went on to remark that the players thought they were being tested for conventional nutrition tests and the tests results came back to us and the growth hormone levels were indicated on the test results. Canavan added we did not order those through this company and once all this unfolded he wrote a report to the NRL integrity unit and what the integrity unit did from there I’m not sure. Canavan said the Roosters had no case to answer and added the couple of players who had elevated readings were tested again by our club doctor and those readings were perfectly normal and some tests were done which were parts of a normal nutrition test that the athletes undergo.

In a preliminary final, the team will take on Newcastle on Saturday night with the winner to progress to the grand final on October 6.

Weightlifter Patrick Mendes Banned

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has banned Olympic weightlifter Patrick Mendes after he tested positive for human growth hormone (HGH), a banned substance.

The weightlifter from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” in Las Vegas, Nevada failed anti-doping controls on February 7 and February 27, 2012 prior to the 2012 United States Olympic Team Trials for Weightlifting that determine who would represent the United States at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Patrick Mendes was the top-ranked U.S. Olympic weightlifter at over 105 kilograms.

Mendes was the protégé of renowned weightlifting coach John Broz who lived and trained during his competitive career with legendary Bulgarian superheavyweight Antonio Krastev, who recorded a world record snatch of 216 kilograms in 1987.

The 21-year-old Mendes who was a U.S. Olympic hopeful in weightlifting tested positive for human growth hormone (HGH). The prospective medal favorite in the super heavyweight division at the London Olympics confessed to using the drug after testing positive in two tests administered in February, according to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in a statement.

Graduated from Del Sol High in Las Vegas, Patrick Mendes accepted a two-year ban, which commenced on March 19. His positive test results for HGH were the result of two separate samples collected on February 7, 2012, and February 27, 2012 as part of USADA’s Out of Competition Testing Program. The samples of Mendes were tested at the WADA-accredited Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory (SMRTL), located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Human Growth Hormone is prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”) Anti-Doping Policies, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code.

The weightlifter admitted his use of HGH and accepted a period of two years of ineligibility that began on March 19, 2012, the day he accepted a provisional suspension. As a result of the sanction, Mendes is also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on or subsequent to February 7, 2012, the date the first blood sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.

USADA CEO Travis T. Tygart said the case demonstrates yet again that the human growth hormone testing works to stop this dangerous drug from being used in sport and added that the agency is pleased that Mendes chose to admit his use of HGH and accept the sanction.

With this suspension, the weightlifter become only the second U.S. athlete found using human growth hormone, the first being minor-league baseball player Mike Jacobs, who tested positive under the program instituted by Major League Baseball last summer.

In another development, 19-year-old Olympic weightlifter Joshua Gilbert of Las Vegas, Nev. from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” tested positive for the diuretic furosemide at the 2012 National Weightlifting Championships that was held in conjunction with the U.S. Olympic Trials as part of the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus (Ohio) on March 2, 2012. Joshua Gilbert was suspended for a period of three years for his anti-doping rule violation by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

Olympic Weightlifter Joshua Gilbert Banned

Olympic weightlifter Joshua Gilbert of Las Vegas, Nev., an athlete in the sport of weightlifting, accepted a suspension of three years from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for his anti-doping rule violation.

The 19-year-old tested positive for Furosemide on March 2, 2012 at the National Championships, and refused to submit to doping control on March 20, 2012. Since Gilbert had not yet been notified of the results of the March 2nd test prior to his refusal to submit, under the rules both incidents are classified as one anti-doping rule violation. Both the incidents are prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”) Anti-Doping Policies, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code.

Gilbert was banned from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” (Las Vegas, Nevada) after he tested positive for a banned substance.

Aggravating circumstances justify a period of ineligibility greater than the standard sanction, and as such the weightlifter received a three-year period of ineligibility for his anti-doping rule violation which began on April 5, 2012, the day he accepted a provisional suspension in accordance with the WADA Code.

Joshua Gilbert s also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on or subsequent to, March 2, 2012, the date his sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes. Gilbert, a promising Olympic lifter who trained under John Broz, tested positive for diuretic furosemide at the 2012 National Weightlifting Championships that was held in conjunction with the U.S. Olympic Trials as part of the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus (Ohio) on March 2, 2012. Broz lived and trained with legendary Bulgarian superheavyweight Antonio Krastev, who recorded a world record snatch of 216 kilograms in 1987, during his career.

Furosemide is listed as a masking agent because of its potential to assist in elimination of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs from the body besides helping athletes to make weight in sports with multiple weight classes like weightlifting, boxing, and wrestling.

In another development, Patrick Mendes also from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” tested positive for human growth hormone and was suspended for a period of two years. The 21-year-old tested positive for Human Growth Hormone (HGH) as the result of two separate samples collected on February 7, 2012, and February 27, 2012 as part of USADA’s Out of Competition Testing Program. The samples were tested at the WADA-accredited Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory (SMRTL), located in Salt Lake City, Utah. HGH is prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”) Anti-Doping Policies, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code. He accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on March 19, 2012, the day he accepted a provisional suspension.

Dwain Chambers Back In London Olympics – Cliff Notes

Dwain Chambers 1 - dopingDwain Chambers, born on 5 April 1978, has made his return at the London Olympics. A British track sprinter and considered to be one of the fastest European sprinters in the history of athletics, Dwain holds the European record for the 60 meters and 4×100 meters relay events with 6.42 seconds and 37.73 seconds, respectively.

In 1997, Chambers made a junior world record of 10.06 s in the 100 m and made his first Olympic appearance at the Sydney 2000 Games. He broke the 10-second barrier twice at the Edmonton World Championships and won silver at the 2008 World Indoor Championships, gold at the 2009 European Indoors, and became world champion at the 2010 World Indoor Championships.

The athlete decided to relocate to California to work with veteran coach Remi Korchemny and nutritionist Victor Conte and recorded a 200 m personal best of 20.27 s in Athens on 10 June 2002 during the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Chambers also won the 100 m at the Commonwealth Games trials in style and was subsequently made team captain for the 2002 European Cup event. The captaincy brought the best out of Dwain and he went on to equal Linford Christie’s European Cup record of 10.04 s in the 100 m. After being injured in Manchester, the British athlete claimed a gold medal in the 100 m at the 2002 European Championships in Munich with a championship record of 9.96 s and recorded a time of 9.94 s at the Weltklasse Zürich meeting, again beating world record holder Greene. Dwain went on to receive the 2002 European Athlete of the Year Trophy for his achievements on the track.

Chambers’ personal best of 9.97 s set at the 1999 Seville World Championships places him as the third fastest European in the 100 m, behind Portugal’s Francis Obikwelu (9.86 s) and British record-holder Linford Christie (9.87 s).

 Dwain Chambers back in Team GB for London 2012 Olympics

When the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) was investigating the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO), a sample for an out-of-competition drugs test that Chambers had provided tested positive for a type of anabolic steroid called THG, or tetrahydrogestrinone. An independent UK Athletics tribunal banned him for two years, backdated to begin on 7 November 2003. Dwain was banned for life from the Olympics and stripped of the medals he had won since mid-2002; the athlete was also asked to pay back his earnings from the period of his athletics career by the IAAF that was affected by drug abuse.

In 2008, Chambers confessed to using epitestosterone cream, EPO, HGH, insulin lispro, modafinil, and liothyronine according to a letter by his supplier Conte to British anti-doping chief John Scott.

The two-year athletics ban and a lifetime Olympic ban in 2003 after he tested positive for Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) was overturned in 2012. The Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned his lifetime Olympic ban as the ban was deemed non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code.

During the London 2012 Olympic Games, Dwain Chambers won his heat in 10.02, with a legal 2.0 m/s following wind in the first round but finished fourth and did not make the final after running 10.05 in the semi-final.

  Roger Clemens Verdict – The Needle And The Damage Done

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

Former Major League Baseball starting pitcher, William @Roger Clemens (born August 4, 1962), nicknamed “The Rocket” and popularly known as Roger Clemens, was recently acquitted from all charges against him. The baseball player was facing one count of obstructing Congress, three counts of making false statements, and two counts of perjury.

Born on August 4, 1962 in Dayton (Ohio), Roger Clemens was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 1st round (19th pick) of the 1983 amateur draft. He made his Major League Baseball debut on May 15, 1984 and won seven Cy Young Awards (he won the AL award in 1986, 1987, 1991, 1997, 1998, and 2001, and the National League award in 2004), an MVP and two pitching triple crowns. The baseball player also won The Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award five times, was named an All-Star 11 times, and won the All-Star MVP in 1986. He got his 1,000th strikeout as a Yankee on August 18, 2007 and is only the 9th player in MLB history to record 1,000 or more strikeouts with two different teams.

The verdict may have allowed Clemens to extend his long career as one of the greatest and most-decorated pitchers in baseball history, but the verdict was a clear blow to the legal pursuit by the government of athletes accused of illicit drug use. Moreover, the clean chit given to Clemens also raised questions on the purpose, credibility and execution of the Mitchell Report on steroid use in baseball that mentioned his name 82 times. In the report, former Yankees trainer Brian McNamee stated that he injected Roger Clemens with Winstrol (stanozolol) during the 1998, 2000, and 2001 baseball seasons.

60 Minutes Does a hit piece on Roger Clemens

The verdict also brought an end to the testifying of convicted drug dealer Kirk Radomski that he supplied human growth hormone to McNamee for a starting pitcher and even sent a shipment to house of Clemens. Radomski however had no ideas whether or not the HGH was specifically used on Roger Clemens. Debbie Clemens, Clemens’s wife, admitted that she received a human growth hormone injection from McNamee though the versions of both (Clemens and McNamee) differ over when the injection was administered and whether or not Roger Clemens was present at the time of HGH administration. The verdict also suggested that steroids actually work and they can be extremely beneficial to obliterate home run records or win gold medals.

It also indicates that steroid users are more likely to succeed and can still come out clean and sportsmen who do not take anabolic steroids would always find it difficult to compete against them.

The charges that Roger Clemens may have used anabolic steroids and human growth hormone during a career spanning 24 decades and producing 354 victories have been brought down by the verdict, but many still feel that he was not as clean as portrayed.

Clenbuterol is regularly used along with HGH with T3 Cytomel for a steroid cycle of six to eight weeks. It may be used alone in a Clenbuterol only cycle, also known as a Clen only cycle, to access extraordinary and nearly long lasting upgrades in the perspective of muscle definition, weight loss, body fat loss, protein synthesis, and nitrogen retention.

To get the best value from the Clenbuterol only cycle, dosages of this weight loss drug should be properly selected. The most typical quantity routine followed by men is between 60-140 mcg every day and ladies use Clen mostly in doses of 40-120 mcg every day. It is worth noting that the doses should be increased by 20 mcg every day from the lowest to arrive at the highest stage (140 mcg for men and 120 mcg for women) and then decreased by 20 mcg every day from the highest possible to arrive at the lowest stage (60 mcg every day for men and 40 mcg every day for women).

A perfect Clenbuterol only cycle for men would be in the order of 60mcg, 80mcg, 100mcg, 120mcg, 140mcg, 120mcg, 100mcg, 80mcg, and 60mcg and the best Clenbuterol only cycle for women the order would be 40mcg, 60mcg, 80mcg, 100mcg, 120mcg, 100mcg, 80mcg, 60mcg, and 40mcg.

Most athletes choose using Clenbuterol in a 2-day on and 2-day off or 3-week on and 3-week off cycle as it allows their individual body not get safe from the activity procedure of the medication.

Clenbuterol use is also contraindicated to those suffering from health problems such as tachycardia, tachyarrhythmia, heart or thyroid diseases, urinary retention, glaucoma, ischemic heart disease, hyperthyroidism, myocardial infarction (acute period), high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, prostatic hypertrophy, hyperthyroidism, or hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Sportsmen and others who are already making the use of drugs such as terbutaline, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, cardiac glycosides, oxytocin, propanolol, digoxin, dinoprost (Lutalyse, Prostamate), beta-blockers, sugar lowering drugs, insulin, CNS stimulants, MAO inhibitors, and sympathomimetic agents, or inhaled anesthetics, should avoid this weight and fat loss drug.

The government’s only eyewitness to Roger Clemens‘s alleged use of performance enhancing drugs, Brian McNamee, was allowed to name other former teammates of New York Yankees who allegedly used human growth hormone.

Testifying for a sixth day in the perjury trial of Clemens, McNamee, told jurors that he offered HGH to Andy Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch while helping Mike Stanton to obtain the drug.

“You cannot infer Mr. Clemens is guilty merely because he said other ballplayers used these substances and he provided these substances to them,” Walton told the jury.
