Athletes accused me of doping, says shelly ann fraser-pryce

Jamaican track and field sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has remarked that the majority of comments by athletes toward her after she won three gold medals at the World Track and Field Championships were negative. The sprinters said some athletes believe she made use of performance enhancing drugs this season.

Fraser-Pryce ascended to prominence in the 2008 Olympic Games when she at the age of 21 years old became the first Caribbean woman to win 100 m gold at the Olympics. She then went on to defend her 100m title and became the third woman to win two consecutive 100m events at the Olympics. Like countryman Usain Bolt, Fraser-Pryce swept 100-meter, 200-meter and 4×100-meter relay gold medals at the recent World Championships in Moscow. The colorful Fraser-Pryce with half her long hair dyed pink beat three-time champion Felix in the 200m final. She won the 100 in 10.71 seconds to beat the second-place finisher by .22 of a second and won the 200 in 22.17 seconds, beating the second-place finisher by .15 of a second.

Fraser-Pryce added she has not done anything that nobody else has ever done before, apart from winning three gold medals, but it was just hard work and the times were not ridiculous; it was just very good execution.

In 2011, the Jamaican sprinter served a suspension of six months for testing positive for Oxycodone though she claimed it was because of a medication she took for a toothache. A banned narcotic, Oxycodone is not considered a performance enhancing drug or a masking agent.

In the 2009 IAAF World Championships, she won the 100m gold medal to become only the second female sprinter after Gail Devers to hold both World and Olympic 100 m titles simultaneously. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce became the first female sprinter to win gold medals in the 100 m, 200 m and 4×100 m in a single world championship in 2013. Fraser-Pryce s ranked fourth on the list of the fastest 100 m female sprinters of all time, with a personal best of 10.70 seconds.

The sprinter, who trained with Asafa Powell, took the 100 m Jamaican title in the 2009 Berlin World Championships and won with a world-leading time of 10.88 s. At the same championship, she ran the second leg on the Jamaican 4x 100 m relay team while competing against Chandra Sturrup of the Bahamas, Anne Mollinger of Germany, and Kelly-Ann Baptiste of Trinidad and Tobago to help the Jamaican team eventually claimed the gold medal. In 2010, Fraser-Pryce won the Golden Cleats Award for female Athlete of the Year and then she won the Golden Cleats Award for female Athlete of the Year for the second time for her outstanding accomplishments in the 2012 London Olympic Games. The fastest women on earth, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, competed with Jessica Ennis of Britain for the Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year Award where she lost the award. On 22 February 2010, the sprinter from Jamaica was named as the first UNICEF National Goodwill Ambassador for Jamaica.

  Shot Putter Armstrong Might Be Awarded Olympic Bronze

Shot Putter Armstrong Might Be Awarded Olympic Bronze

Canadian shot putter Dylan Armstrong who narrowly missed the bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics may get the same real soon.

This was after Andrei Mikhnevich of Belarus, who edged Armstrong for bronze, was one of six athletes caught for doping in re-tests of their samples from the 2005 world track and field championships in Helsinki. The 2003 world champion, Mikhnevich, had already served a two-year suspension for a doping offense, so a positive test from 2005 should result in a lifetime ban. Mikhnevich threw 21.05 meters at the Birds Nest in Beijing, while Armstrong, from Kamloops, threw 21.04 at the Beijing Olympics.

Among the other five athletes whose re-tests were positive was Belarusian shot putter Nazdeya Ostapchuk, who won the shot put at the 2005 worlds and finished second in 2003, 2007 and 2011, Ivan Tsikhan of Belarus and Olga Kuzenkova of Russia — men’s and women’s hammer throw champions at the 2005 world championships, Vadim Devyatovskiy of Belarus, who took second in the hammer at the 2005 worlds, and Tatyana Kotova of Russia, who was second in the long jump.

IAAF president Lamine Diack said in a statement that the message of our organization to cheaters is increasingly clear that, with constant advancements being made in doping detection, there is no place to hide and the IAAF will continue to do everything in its power to ensure the credibility of competition, and where the rules have been broken, will systematically uncover the cheats. The IAAF said it re-tested samples using “the most up-to-date analytical techniques.”

Armstrong, the Canadian shot putter, is the reigning Commonwealth Games and Pan American Games champion and has also won a world championship silver medal in the shotput event and holds the Canadian national record, the Commonwealth games record, and the Pan American Games record for shotput. He remarked after news of his winning the bronze medal that the IOC and the World Anti-Doping Agency need to go harder after governments and national sport federations in the fight to weed out drug cheats. He added that these federations are protecting athletes and he knows where throwers have been caught three times and remarked it’s ridiculous and it just goes on and on.

Armstrong went on to add that some national federations are weak on the issue and they’re under the influence of governments and there’s no incentive to catch their own nationals. The shot putter praised WADA and the IAAF for using new technology to re-test samples from years ago, but said there are still a number of loopholes that have to be sealed. Meanwhile, organizers of The Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic, which goes July 1 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, have plans to celebrate Armstrong being bumped up to a medal position, although a formal awarding of an Olympic bronze may take a couple of months. The medal is the first ever won in a throwing event by a Canadian athlete at the Olympics.

Dylan Armstrong has been competing almost daily in Europe since May 30, throwing a season-best of 20.74 meters at Velenje, Slovenia, on June 4. Only 11 other shot putters have thrown further in 2013, including Ryan Whiting of the U.S., who is the only man to go over 22 meters (22.28). He has two more meets in Europe before heading to Canadian nationals in Moncton June 20-23-and then on to the Jerome.
