Some farmers in Mexico still illegally use clenbuterol for bulking up cattle even though it is abanned substance that can cause an increase in aerobic capacity.

WADA issued a statement asking all athletes in Mexico to “exercise extreme caution with regards to what they eat and where they eat.”

Matildas’ hopes of a London Olympic reprieve have been dashed after Australia’s calls to have North Korea banned from the tournament over a doping row fell on deaf ears.

The women soccer team of Australia narrowly missed a 2012 Olympic berth after finishing third at the Asian qualifying tournament in September behind Japan and North Korea.

“WADA has carefully considered the award relating to all the sanctions handed out by FIFA to the North Korea women’s team,” a WADA statement said.

As Australia appeals to have North Korea banned from next year’s London Games over a doping row, the shattered Olympic dreams of  Matildas could be revived.

A 2012 Olympic berth was narrowly missed by the national women’s soccer team after it finished third at the Asian qualifying tournament in September behind Japan and North Korea, who claimed the two Games spots.

“We think it’s strange that a team is banned for 2015 and not 2012 so we have raised the issue with WADA, the IOC and FIFA but so far to no avail,” Football Federation Australia national teams chief John Boultbee told AAP.

The health authorities of Mexico are cracking down on cattle merchants who use the banned substance clenbuterol to make the meat from livestock less fatty.

The measure was launched after clenbuterol turned up in the urine of 109 players from various countries taking part in the Under-17 soccer world championship, an event hosted by Mexico in June and July.

“Steps taken by the Mexican government have reduced the number of cases of such contamination from 555 in 2005 to 89 in 2010,” Mikel Arriola, director of the Federal Commission for Protection against Health Risks, said in a conference call to Mexican Soccer Federation headquarters.

Soccer improves the health standards of growing boysAccording to a new research published by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), long-term and regular participation in soccer greatly improves the health profile of young boys.

The study revealed sharp contrasts between regular and long-term benefits from extracurricular sports participation against physical education alone.

Soccer needs to be promoted as a low-cost option to facilitate sound and healthy growth of growing boys as per lead researcher Jose A. L. Calbet, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in Spain.

It was revealed that growing boys who play soccer not just benefit from increased whole body bone mineral density but they also witness high regional measurements in areas such as femoral neck in the hip and lumbar spine.

Soccer player Eduardo Carlos Morgado Oliveira tested positive for the anabolic steroid nandrolone after the Russia-Italy matchup at the FIFA Futbal World Cup Brazil 2008 on Oct.18.

Meanwhile Liberian player Melvin King received a five-month ban subsequent to a positive test at a doping control after the match of the preliminary competition of the 2010 FIFA World Cup between Senegal and Liberia. The match took place on 21 June 2008. King was discovered of using a glucocorticoid, which is a medication included in the list of specified substances of WADA.

The use of such a substance requires a therapeutic use exemption, something which the player did not have. The sanctions for such an anti-doping rule violation range from a warning to a two-year suspension, and the FIFA Disciplinary Committee decided to impose a sanction of five months starting on 2 October 2008, the date on which the player was first provisionally suspended by the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee. The sanction applies for all matches, whether friendly or official fixtures, at domestic and international level.
