    USA Today reported (8/28) that the 1999 mystery doper was Jerome Young. IAAF wants the sydney gold back.

      No, actually, it is Dick Pound (appropriate name...) of WADA who wants the medal back. The IAAF considers the case closed.

        Yes, somebody please give the aptly named Dick Pound a dictionary and point out him what the word EXONERATED means. Does this man crave publicity or what?

          Dick Pound...now there's another wanna-be dictator. The man hates the USA. He'd like us all to bow down and worship his image. Good ridance to him and his ilk.

            Dick Pound has also never understood that the reason he's not head of the IOC isn't because of a deep dark U.S. conspiracy to keep cheating those poor Canadians, it's because he's the absolute opposite of diplomatic and no one can stand him!!

              So they "exile" him to a WADA job, where they know he will keep dogging the Americans and stay out of the Europeans & Africans back yard.

              They hate him but are quite happy with the status quo.

              Maybe we should take the Israeli's lead, declare him a bureacratic terrorist, and fire a guided missile or two at his limousine.

                  Dick Pound is a great guy. He will not tolerate more US cover ups - why should he or for that matter the rest of the world. Dick Pound wants clean sport, he will not let political bullshit get in the way. Good on him, more top officials should have the balls to speak up like he does.

                    They will have to write at least one more letter:

                    "The IOC has written to the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the USOC, strongly urging them to pursue the matter."

                      Except it's not just Pound:

                      "IOC president Jacques Rogge sent a letter to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the International Association of Athletics Federations "strongly urging them to pursue the matter.""

                        I've said this to you before Randy. That is out of line-especially this day and age.

                          Depends on where you stand with regard to the Israelis and terrorism.

                          But I'll give Pound a reprieve.
                          He definitely has no business being head of WADA though, with such a huge personal grudge.

                            The IAAF is just as bound as USATF at this point-
                            by their own rules, once a matter has been ruled upon the International Arbitration Board in Switzerland, the matter cannot be reopened.
                            The matter has ALREADY been pursued by the IAAF, all the way to a conclusion.

                            Young has been exonerated TWICE, once by the USATF Appeals Board, and again by Arbitration.

                            I fully believe that Pound has had the case transcripts from the Arbitrator for many years.
                            He knows he CANNOT win there.

                            So he tries to do it through the news media, knowing how sensitive the IOC is to public relations.

                            Masback and Diack should team up to tell Rogge to go Pound sand.

                              Take the lead that the USA does, if your athlete test positive for the steriod nadrolone, have an internal hearing, clear the athlete for whatever reason, and NOT disclose the name to the IAAF. What happened to all you Americans about "bashing". Dick Pound did'nt test positive for Nandrolone, it was J Young.
