Two-Year Suspensions For Cyclist And Track & Field Athlete

Yosmani Pol Rodriguez of Weston, an athlete in the sport of cycling, has tested positive for a prohibited substance, according to an announcement by the United States Anti-Doping Agency.

The 32-year-old has accepted a two-year sanction for his doping offense after testing positive for Dexamethasone as the result of an in-competition urine sample collected on March 10, 2012 at the Delray Beach Twilight Criterium. Dexamethasone is classified as a glucocorticosteroid on the World Anti-Doping Prohibited List and is prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Cycling Union (“UCI”) anti-doping rules, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code (“Code”) and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List. The cyclist accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on September 2, 2012, the date of his last competition. Rodriguez has also been disqualified from all competitive results achieved on and subsequent to March 10, 2012, including the forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes.

A potent synthetic member of the glucocorticoid class of steroid drugs, Dexamethasone can suppress the natural pituitary-adrenal axis and acts as an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant and is medically prescribed to treat inflammatory conditions such as allergies, skin conditions, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, and breathing disorders. When taken orally, Dexamethasone is 26.6 times more potent than the naturally occurring hormone cortisol and 6.6 times more potent than prednisone. The CYP2D6 enzyme inducer is commonly used by sportsmen to develop fat easily and may increase the effects of many prodrugs and protoxins which are metabolized via CYP2D6 (like tramadol or codeine) by directly increasing the amount of the active metabolite produced.

In another development, Shawn Crawford of Culver City, an athlete in the sport of track & field, has received a suspension of two years for committing an anti-doping rule violation in which he failed to file his whereabouts information. The 35-year-old Crawford was a member of the USADA National Testing Pool from 2001 through the beginning of 2013, which consists of a select group of athletes subject to certain whereabouts requirements in order to be located for USADA Out-of-Competition testing.

The track and field athlete failed to comply with the whereabouts requirements and, as a result, accrued three Whereabouts Failures within an 18-month period. Under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Anti-Doping Rules, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code (“Code”), the combination of three Whereabouts Failures within an 18-month period constitutes a rule violation. A Whereabouts Failure for National Testing Pool athletes includes failure to provide required quarterly whereabouts filings and/or failure to be available for testing due to inaccurate or incomplete information provided by the athlete. The two-year period of ineligibility for Crawford, began on April 17, 2013, the date he received the sanction. As a result of the violation, Crawford has been disqualified from all competitive results achieved on and subsequent to November 17, 2012 the date of his third Whereabouts Failure, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.

This is not just because this weight-loss medication can easily and reasonably be purchased online, with or without a prescription, but also because use of this medication is not associated with adverse reactions that are common with use of performance improving drugs, especially aromatizable steroid drugs.

However, misuse of Clenbuterol just like any other substance misuse can cause adverse reactions. When Clen is wrongly used or misused or used for a beyond-normal time range, its use may cause adverse reactions, such as gastrointestinal irritation, myocardial infarction, skin rash, urticaria, diaphoresis, dry mouth, nausea, tightness in the chest, vomiting, dizziness, depleted phosphate levels, difficulty in breathing, insomnia, muscular shivering, cardiac hypertrophy, potassium depletion, palpitation, loss of concentration, frequent mood swings, drowsiness, taurine depletion, hypophosphatemia, hypokalemia, stroke, vertigo, headaches, anxiety, and tachycardia. Moreover, Clenbuterol abuse over an extended duration has been found to be associated with adverse reactions such as increased blood pressure, tremors, muscle cramps, excessive sweating, heartburn, face flushes, and restlessness.

Individuals using medications, Accutane, oral 17-alpha-alkylated steroid drugs, or hepatotoxic (toxic to liver) elements should avoid using Clen as such a mixture may cause liver toxicity.

  Why You Should Avoid Abusing Anabolic Steroids?

In today’s cutthroat world, second chances are rare due to intense competition and able contenders more than ready to take your place, at the workplace or the sport field. This is one of the biggest reasons why more and more people, and not just sportsmen, are using anabolic steroids these days. However, some of them often fail to differentiate between the right use of steroids and steroid abuse and this is exactly where health complications come into the picture.

Anabolic steroid abuse is related to interference with efficient collagen deposition in tendons that may cause weakening of the tendon structure. Few studies in the past have indicated that steroid users are more likely to face tendon injuries as their muscle tissue become so strong that they tend to surpass ability of the muscle to transmit force. Moreover, the use of steroid drugs (even if for the first time) may enhance infrequent or dysplastic development of bovine collagen materials that may cause stiff tendons with significantly reduced elastic qualities. The use of steroid drugs is also relevant to a rise in prothrombin time, which is time taken by our body to produce blood clots. This means that a steroid user’s body may take slighter longer than others (non-users) for a small cut to stop blood loss that can lead to a more serious trouble. Moreover, these changes may get aggravated with the use of medicines such as Tylenol, Pain killers, and especially anticoagulants.

In short, anabolic steroids should always be used sensibly and for medical purposes only such as the treatment of severe burns, prostate cancer, breast cancer, knee or shoulder injury (joint repair), anemia, thrombosis, osteoporosis, endometriosis and hereditary angioedaema, asthma, and muscle-wasting disorders. They may also be used for help individuals gain weight for chronic nutritional deficiencies or AIDS wasting syndrome, improve protein synthesis, and nitrogen balance.

One of the biggest reasons why anabolic steroids are used by athletes and others is because of the desire to be invincible. While athletes use these performance enhancing medications to run faster, grow bigger, and hit harder, others use steroid drugs to obtain or shed weight and develop solid muscles and lean overall look.

It is worthwhile to note here that there is a very little difference of difference between steroid use and steroid abuse. While steroid use is legal and all about use of medication to treat wellness issues under the expert assistance of a qualified doctor, the misuse of steroid drugs is unlawful and done to obtain unjust advantage or alter physical aspect in the desire to be better, and this may be with or without healthcare assistance. However, most steroid users are not aware that indiscriminate use of steroid drugs or steroid abuse could lead them to nowhere and such unlawful functions may bring them closer to illnesses and wellness problems besides legal complications.

The misuse of anabolic steroids can cause wellness problems and these may range from mild to severe and from reversible to irreversible. Some of the possible side effects of anabolic steroids could be testicular atrophy, gynecomastia, acne, greasy skin, kidney damage, decreased ejaculation fertility, hypertension, cardiac arrest, stroke, abnormal functioning of the liver, and prostate enlargement. In addition to these side effects of steroid abuse, people abusing steroid drugs may experience deepened voice, menstrual cycle changes, depression, hallucination, dizziness, stunted growth, male pattern baldness, reduced sex drive, testicle shrinking, clitoris enlargement, growth of facial hair, and increased aggression. Anabolic steroid abuse may even result in wellness problems, including hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism or rapid discount rates in terms of serum concentrations of LH (luteinizing hormone), FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), and testosterone levels. Not only this, steroid abuse has also been related to early skeletal growth and liver organ damage.

In short, anabolic steroids are extremely potent drugs that may lead to side effects and therefore they should be used legally and as directed.

Abuse of steroid drugs may even cause a rise in the amount of water and sodium saved in cells of our bodies that may further convert into health issues such as hypertension and kidney stress or damage. The use of steroid drugs in the long term may even block the binding of cortisol, a chemical hormone produced by our bodies to manage stress, to its receptor sites that is useful for preventing breakdown of muscle tissue and enhancing the procedure of restoration after accidents. Moreover, steroid ointment drugs can improve the stages of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and decrease the levels of HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) that translates into increased risk for atherosclerosis (process of blocking the blood flow to heart).
