  Cheating Russian Athletes Exposed By Anti-Doping Scientists

Canadian law professor Richard McLaren has revealed a ‘well-oiled’ machine was geared up by Russia to undermine advances in science and anti-doping strategies to help Russian athletes cheat at major international competitions including the London and Sochi Olympic Games.

The report disclosed state-sponsored doping by Russia benefited more than 1,000 athletes at the London and Sochi Olympic Games. The extent of the doping and evolved techniques for hiding the evidence was uncovered by the report.

Commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the McLaren report used science for confirming the testimony of Grigory Rodchenkov, the former director of the Russian anti-doping laboratory who fled to the United States in January. The former anti-doping laboratory head developed a test for metabolites of the anabolic steroid Turinabol while working for the lab. He undermined that advance by developing a cocktail of Oxandrolone, Methenolone, and Trenbolone, with a very short detection window.

The Russian lab conducted a program of ‘washout’ testing to verify if the athletes have been successful in moving from the Turinabol doping regime to the new cocktail so that they do not test positive at the London Olympics. This form of pre-competition testing was facilitated to ensure athletes would be able to compete without being detected by doping control. The Moscow labs recorded negative results on the reporting system of WADA even though a positive pre-competition test would have resulted in an athlete being banned. Non-official sample bottles were used to hide pre-competition results. Athletes that failed to come “clean” were left out of international competitions.

The report also revealed the Russia’s sports ministry and the Centre for Sports Preparation of National Teams of Russia compiled a ‘protected’ list of 37 athletes who were likely to win a medal and managed to dope right up to and possibly during the Sochi Games. These athletes provided “clean” urine that was possibly taken from them while not on the cocktail and the samples were frozen and stored for swapping at the Sochi games.

McLaren had previously accused the International Olympic Committee of completely misrepresenting his findings that were never designed to prove individual doping cases. McLaren said he was asked to write a report to determine the facts and he did that but the IOC turned it upside down. McLaren went on to add that the IOC made it look like whether the report could prove the guilt of individual athletes when it was actually about state-sponsored doping.

Christiane Ayotte, the inquiry’s medical and scientific adviser, noted that ‘significantly high levels of prohibited substances’ were demonstrated by a number of positive results on the washout list. The samples were destroyed by the Moscow labs so that they cannot be retested at a later stage. However, 62 urine samples from 27 of the 37 ‘protected’ athletes were still available to the investigation.

Alan Brailsford at the Drug Control Centre in London aid one normally looks to detect something that should not be there but the Russian labs were trying to work out what would indicate tampering.

  British Shot Putter Carl Fletcher Banned

British Shot Putter Carl Fletcher Banned

A four-year ban has been imposed on British shot putter Carl Fletcher after he was convicted of trafficking in doping substances. The shot putter was sentenced to a jail term of nine months at Liverpool Crown Court for offenses including the supply of anabolic steroids.

Fletcher supplied 16 types of class C substances, including the supply of anabolic steroids, including testosterone, human growth hormone, and Trenbolone, all of which are banned under the World Anti-Doping Agency code. The ban on Fletcher is backdated to November 9, 2011 and he is banned from participation in sport until November 7, 2015. The WADA code provides for a minimum ban of four years for trafficking or administering the provision of a banned substance.

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) chief executive, Andy Parkinson, said the case of Carl Fletcher was a major landmark for UK Anti-Doping and a real breakthrough as UKAD is actually cutting doping off at the source. He added that UK Anti-Doping worked closely Merseyside Police and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) throughout the operation to help bring the first trafficking violation of the United Kingdom. Parkinson further added that this case proves the invaluable role that law enforcement agencies have in the fight against doping in sport and highlights that the intelligence system is working effectively.

Fletcher set a personal best of 18.70 meters in 2011 and competed for Woodford Green with Essex Ladies. The shot putter had pleaded guilty to possessing Class C drugs with intent to supply and was one of five men receiving jail sentences, two of whom were serving Merseyside Police officers, one of whom was Carl Fletcher’s uncle, David Fletcher.

During 2011, information was received by UK Anti-Doping from sources including the Report Doping in Sport hotline, about Fletcher, who owned a sports supplement shop in the North West. This shop was later raided as part of a police operation, and the shot putter was charged with the supply of classified substances under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

Carl Fletcher admitted to his criminal charges on 21 October 2011 for possession of many controlled drugs with intent to supply. Information obtained from the police that was passed to the legal team of UK Anti-Doping was sufficient to charge Carl Fletcher with an anti-doping rule violation for trafficking of substances on the Prohibited List.  Fletcher and four other males were sentenced on 21 November 2011 for their involvement in a steroid drug ring and the shot putter was sentenced to nine months in prison. At the same time, UK Anti-Doping imposed a four-year ban on Fletcher from sport for trafficking performance enhancing drugs.

He becomes the fourth British shot putter to be punished in less than two years for a doping violation. During an out-of-competition test in February 2010, Jamie Stevenson and Keiren Kelly were banned for a period of two years after they refused to provide a urine sample. In August 2010, a one-year suspension was handed to Rachel Wallender that was later reduced to four months on appeal after he tested positive for the stimulant methylhexaneamine.

  Swiss Sanctions Approved By WADA

Swiss Sanctions Approved By WADA

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has issued its approval of recent sanctions on Roger Nachbur and Reto Eigenmann, two athletes from Switzerland. The two athletes have been banned for buying drugs on the internet. It was claimed by WADA that the case has been “noted with interest” but the anti-doping agency has refused to elaborate on the possibility of instituting similar rules.

Nachbur purchased “clenbuterol and EPO” while Eigenmann bought clomifene, testosterone, and trenbolone. The Swiss Olympic committee remarked that the two athletes had violated by the rules since they were in possession of the drugs. Despite the fact that there was no drug test involved, it was enough for the committee to believe that there was enough evidence that they were planning on using them.

Nachbur, a 30-year-old road cyclist, and 41-year-old speed skier Eigenmann are barred from competition through August 22, 2014. Both the athletes have not competed in the Olympics but fall under jurisdiction of the committee as they are national athletes. Nachbur was fined 22,000 francs (CHF 500 Franken Busse, 500 francs party compensation costs to Anti-doping Switzerland, CHF 1,200 legal costs) and Eigenmann was fined 1,700 francs (500 francs party compensation costs to Anti-doping Switzerland, CHF 1,200 legal costs).

WADA President John Fahey said this is the first time that athletes from Switzerland have been sanctioned for buying prohibited substances online and he applauds the efforts of the organizations that were involved and added that this case is a good example of the impact that public and law enforcement authorities can have when they share information with the anti-doping community.

Clenbuterol is commonly used by sportsmen to lose body fat and weight besides being used as a thermogenic drug and stimulant. Use of this performance enhancing drug is associated with aerobic capacity, oxygen transportation, and blood pressure improvements. Clenbuterol is medically recommended to treat ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), cardiovascular shock, arrhythmias, anaphylactic shock, and migraine headaches.

Erythropoietin (EPO), also known as erythropoetin or erthropoyetin, is used by sportsmen to improve the production of red blood cells and has become very popular with sportsmen, especially those into cross country skiing, biathlon, triathlons, cycling, horseracing, boxing, distance running, race walking, and rowing. It has the ability to improve oxygen carrying potential of the body to result in improved on-field performance and promotion of the sense of well being, motivation, feeling of invincibility, and mood. Trenbolone, on the other hand, is used to improve muscle mass, body strength, performance, and muscle definition and commonly used by sportsmen since it is metabolized by aromatase or 5α-reductase into DHT or estrogenic compounds such as estradiol. Use of this anabolic steroid can promote the count of red blood cells that further improves oxygen transportation ability of the body. Testosterone derivatives such as testosterone cypionate, testosterone suspension, and testosterone enanthate are commonly used by sportsmen, especially those into strength athletics, to benefit from improved performance, muscle mass, and body strength and lead to balanced growth and development of secondary male sexual characteristics.

One of the greatest benefits associated with Trenbolone Acetate is that its use does not result in transformation to estrogen. This indicates that users of Trenbolone acetate need not fear about estrogenic adverse reactions such as greasy skin, pimples, and gynecomastia. The second best thing about Trenbolone is that it is better than androgenic hormonal agent or testosterone, on a milligram for milligram base. If that is not all, this anabolic steroid is not metabolized by aromatase or 5α-reductase into DHT or estrogenic compounds like estradiol.

The use of Tren for a period of six to eight weeks is generally associated with extraordinary and retaining upgrades with regards to muscle mass, protein synthesis, nitrogen retention, muscle function, and stamina.

Trenbolone use also encourages muscular firmness and increase the body’s capability to deal with extreme exercises. Use of trenbolone acetate is also relevant to decreased levels of cortisol, the extremely catabolic (muscle destroying) hormonal agent and feed efficiency and mineral absorption improvements that encourage growth and development of muscle tissues. One of the other benefits generally associated with use of Trenbolone is that it encourages the count of red blood cells that further increases fresh oxygen transportation capability of the body. The anabolic steroid is also valuable in the withdrawal of endogenous androgen development and reestablishing the production of natural androgenic hormonal agent or testosterone. Tren use also encourages appetite and decreases extra fat being stored in the body besides having a good impact on metabolic rate of the body.

The suggested dosage of Trenbolone acetate is 37.5-75.0 mg per day though some athletes use Tren in amounts of 100 mg per day. The anabolic androgenic steroid should always be used after the advice of a certified doctor and Tren use should only be for lawful and healthcare reasons. Sportsmen looking for a cutting cycle may use Tren with Winstrol or Primobolan; some athletes use Trenbolone and stack it with Dianabol or Testosterone while some choose stacking Tren with Durabolin or Equipoise.

Let us read more about this trenbolone mixture to make and maintain a complete understanding.

Trenbolone enanthate is ranked by one and all as the most popular and successful mixture of Trenbolone besides being the lengthiest performing edition of Trenbolone. This Tren mixture has an anabolic/androgenic rate of 500:500 making it five times as effective as androgenic hormone or testosterone. The active life of this Tren mixture is nearly 7-8 days and it is noticeable within a period of around five months.

When used in amounts of 300-600 mg per week for men for 6-8 several weeks at a stretch, Tren enanthate encourages extraordinary muscles, efficiency, and durability profits. Use of this anabolic steroid does not cause to Tren coughing, gynecomastia, and bloating and it is second to none for helping the levels of nutrient efficiency and mineral absorption in as short as 2-3 weeks.

If you are looking for a strength training drug or weight-loss medication, Winstrol is a remarkable choice for you. Also known as Winny and Stanozolol, Winstrol is categorized as a controlled substance under Schedule III of the Anabolic Steroids Control Act of 1990. This mixture of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) is quite androgenic in characteristics and offers a large anabolic to androgenic rate.

Clinically, Winstrol is used prophylactically to reduce the intensity and regularity of angioedaema problems and used by professional athletes to lose human extra fat and bodyweight under a cutting cycle. The use of research quality Winstrol, when used in complete compliance with medical guidelines, does not lead to steroid side effects.

The use of Winstrol is carefully associated with extraordinary discount rates in the level of SHBG, much more than any other steroid ointment. A dosage of 0.2 mg per kg of bodyweight is adequate to increase the amount of free, moving androgenic hormone or testosterone in the system. Winny also helps athletes maintain muscles and durability while dropping human extra fat. This 17aa drug may lead to some stress on the liver but this impact can be neutralized with consumption of 8-10 glasses of water a day.

One of the best things about Winstrol is that it does not aromatize, which indicates athletes on Winny do not need to hassle about estrogenic adverse reactions such as gynecomastia, liquid storage, acne, and greasy skin. It also indicates that customers need not order antiestrogens such as Clomid and Nolvadex if research quality Winstrol is used as per guidelines. However, users with a history of unwanted estrogen creation could feel needing using antiestrogens while taking Winny, alone or in a mixture with other anabolic steroids and efficiency improving medication.

The use of Winny is also related to extraordinary improves with regards to protein anabolism, nitrogen storage, efficiency, and endurance. It is valuable and valuable for athletes to observe that this efficiency improving medication does not get transformed to estrogenic metabolites and has little joining to SHBG. When used in oral form in amounts of 50-100 mg per day by men and 2.5-10 mg per day by females or in injectable amounts of 25-50 mg per day by men and 2-5 mg per day by females, Winstrol shows its actual prospective. This DHT-derivative is generally placed with Testosterone Propionate, Testosterone enanthate, Deca Durabolin, Trenbolone, Dianabol, and Primobolan during a steroid cycle of 6-8 weeks.

Dustin Richardson, the 26-year-old left-handed pitcher, has been suspended for 50 games, after he tested positive for five different drugs, a result that a spokesperson for Major League Baseball recognized was “unusual.”

“I’ve never seen a case like this, and we’re talking about 30 years I’ve been doing this kind of work,” said Don Catlin, an anti-doping expert and former director of the U.C.L.A. Olympic Analytical Laboratory.

“I’ve had doublets and triplets, but to have five, and have it cover three different subclasses of drugs, is unique, as far as I can tell,” Catlin added.
