Perth Football Club Player Banned

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) has acknowledged decision of the West Australian Football League (WAFL) Anti-Doping Tribunal for imposing a ban of two years on Perth Football Club player Joel Fiegert, for the presence of prohibited substances. The WA Football Commission released findings from a WAFL anti-doping tribunal hearing and said the 21-year-old Fiegert tested positive to an illicit drug prohibited under clause 11.1 of the anti-doping code.

The substances D-amphetamine and D-methamphetamine were detected in a sample that was collected by the ASADA in-competition from Mr Fiegert, following a 30 July 2011 match between Perth and South Fremantle at Brownes Stadium, Western Australia. D-amphetamine and D-methamphetamine are classified as stimulants and are prohibited in-competition, under the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List.

Fiegert, who played 13 league matches in four seasons at the Demons, said he was clean and vehemently denied producing a positive test or being suspended at the end of last season. The ban imposed on Fiegert by the WAFL tribunal was backdated to the date of his provisional suspension and he would be ineligible to participate as an athlete or support person until 23 August 2013 in any sports that have adopted a World Anti-Doping Agency compliant anti-doping policy.

Perth president Vince Pendal was believed to be devastated by the information, but he would not discuss it and said we are not making any comment until the process has gone through. Perth Football Club chief executive Marty Atkins said the club supported the tough stance against recreational drugs and added that he club would work with the player and his family to give him the chance to a make a return to the club once the ban had been lifted.

The former Perth Demons midfielder has become the fourth WAFL player in two years to be suspended for testing positive to a banned substance after East Perth’s Kane Goodwin, Swan Districts’ Travis Casserly, and fellow Royal Dean Cadwallader. Goodwin tested positive to cocaine and the anabolic agent Clenbuterol and can play again in June next year. Casserly tested positive to the banned stimulant pseudoephedrine in cold tablets that he used during the 2010 grand final and would be eligible to play next season. Since then, he has visited many clubs for warning players of risks caused by drugs. The ban of Cadwallader for using Nandrolone expired in May.

Joel Fiegert is no longer at the Demons and is working in Karratha and said he is not aware of a positive test. When asked why he didn’t play the last two matches of 2011, Fiegert replied that he had a stress fracture in his foot last year.

The WAFC informed all WAFL presidents of the identity of the suspended player’s club but stayed away from disclosing name of the player. The matter was being overseen by WA Football Commission integrity manager Steve Hargrave, who is the only WAFC official who was authorized to discuss it but said confidentiality requirements meant he could not comment. In 2010, ASADA conducted 24 WAFL tests but doubled that last year and may double again this season at a cost of nearly $100,000.

  Andre Agassi To Relive Olympic Glory

Andre Agassi To Relive Olympic Glory – Cliff Notes

andre agassi 3 - drugsThe retired American professional tennis player, @Andre Kirk Agassi, is presently reliving his Olympic gold medal day when he won against Sergi Bruguera after beating India’s Leander Paes in two tough sets.

Born on April 29, 1970, Andre Agassi was one of the most dominant tennis players from the early 1990s to the mid 2000s. Called the best service returner in the history of the game, Agassi was described by the BBC upon his retirement as “perhaps the biggest worldwide star in the sport’s history.”

In 1992, Agassi was named the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year and reached the world no. 1 ranking for the first time in April 1995 and held it for a total of 30 weeks.

The eight-time Grand Slam champion, Agassi, competed in 15 Grand Slam finals, and was the 1996 Olympic gold medalist. The American is one of four male singles players to achieve the Career Grand Slam (all four Grand Slam championships) in the Open Era and one of seven in history besides the first of two to achieve the Career Golden Slam (Career Grand Slam and Olympic gold medal), and the only man to win the Career Golden Slam and the ATP Tour World Championships. Andre Agassi was also the first male player to win all four Grand Slams on three different surfaces (hard, clay, and grass), and the last American male to win the French Open (1999) and the Australian Open (2003).

In 1997, he confessed to making the use of crystal methamphetamine and failed an ATP drug test, which was later dropped as a warning. During these times, Agassi was struggling to keep his marriage with actress Brooke Shields and had lost interest in the game. On November 10, 1997, his ranking sank to World No. 141 that prompted many to believe that the end of his illustrious career was near but he went on to win five titles and leapt from world no. 110 to no. 6 in 1996, the highest jump into the top 10 made by any player during a calendar year.

In 1999, Andre Agassi entered the record books by coming back from two sets to love down to beat Andrei Medvedev in a five-set French Open final. He won the eighth (and final) Grand Slam title of his career at the Australian Open in 2003 by beating Rainer Schüttler in straight sets in the final. He recaptured the world no. 1 ranking on April 28, 2003 after a quarterfinal victory over Xavier Malisse at the Queen’s Club Championships to become the oldest top-ranked male player.

Nicknamed “The Punisher”, Agassi has been married to fellow tennis star Steffi Graf since 2001 and retired from professional tennis on September 3, 2006, after losing in the third round of the US Open. His autobiography, Open, reached No. 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list and received favorable reviews. In this book, he admitted that he used and tested positive for methamphetamine in 1997.

  Surfing body introduces Comprehensive drug testing

In 2012, the Association of Surfing Professionals would be rolling out a policy to screen competitors and officials for performance-enhancing and recreational drugs. This would mean the international governing body of surfing for the first time has prepared to introduce comprehensive drug testing for professionals.

This move came after the death of Andy Irons, triple world champion, in November 2010. The postmortem revealed that he died from a heart attack and “acute mixed drug ingestion” and traces of methadone, methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, and a metabolite of cocaine were found in his bloodstream.

Anthony Ruffo, a 47-year-old pioneer of the Santa Cruz scene in the 1980s and another surfer, is facing a possible jail sentence after he was found selling methamphetamine and caught with an ounce of the drug.

“I have seen guys who are stoners and they drop off the scene because it is not sustainable,” he said. “Athletes are training hard. The way the contests are now, it will catch up with you,” Gerry Fitzgerald, a professional in Ireland, said.

This finding was disclosed in a survey of 523 drug addicts led by Prof. Kim Dae-jin at Catholic University of Korea’s College of Medicine and commissioned by the Ministry for Health, Welfare and Family Affairs.

The percentage of cocaine, heroin, and marijuana is much higher than of methamphetamine in North America and Europe.

  RESULTS OF STUDY DONE ON TEENAGERS, ADDICTIVE DRUGS AND STEROIDS

RESULTS OF STUDY DONE ON TEENAGERS, ADDICTIVE DRUGS AND STEROIDSThe results of the 2008 Partnership Attitude Tracking Study was revealed recently by the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. This study was meant to show the changes in the youth with regards to their views on drug use. From the report, it seems like the media is doing a good job in telling teens the risk of using various drugs. Parents have also played their roles too in informing their children about the negative effects of methamphetamine and marijuana. The study showed that about 50% of those who had learned about drug abuse at home will not be using these drugs in the future. Unfortunately, the use of anabolic steroids still needs some improvement with regards to discussion at home. Although only a few teens might use anabolic steroids, it is still important that they be made aware of the risks of these drugs.

According to the president and CEO of the Partnership, Steve Pasierb, the youth needs to find out more about anabolic steroids in order to lessen future chances of them abusing these drugs. Parents should approach this matter more aggressively and shouldn’t find it awkward talking to their kids about such issues.

  Steroid testing in schools but NOT marijuana , cocaine or meth testing?

methPlease someone explain to me why the governments are spending money to test for steroids in schools but don’t test for the most dangerous drugs like marijuana , cocaine or meth or ecstacy ? please explain that one to me.

A Missouri Senate committee will consider legislation today to require the state’s school districts to start testing for steroids.

Anyone with common sense knows that testing for steroids is a waste of money! now testing for coke , meth , E and weed! there is something schools need. How much do you think this will cost the taxpayers (testing for steroids)?

but it’s not cheap. A single test can cost $200, and many school districts don’t want the state to pass that cost to them.

So let’s see, USA has a failing education system with one of the highest rates of widespread drug abuse among teenagers, with methamphetamine claiming over 25% of high school students, but nothing is being done about that drug? let’s let students smoke marijuana and do cocaine but we’ll look the other way and spend MILLIONS of tax dollars testing for steroids , where is the common sense here?
