  • More bad news

    This is going way back. This is probably old news but was the first I'd heard of it today. I apologize if it's old.http://www.globeandmail.com/servlet/sto ... ry/Sports/

    I assume Boulami's time from 2001 will still stand as the WR.

      Well there is a silver lining, at least it shows that EPO cheats can sometimes get caught.

        Any globe and mail readers out there? Today's news headline asking the U.S. to pay up to WADA or don't bother trying to get 2012. Even many of the poorer countries have made an effort to pay what they can. http://www.globeandmail.com/servlet/sto ... ry/Sports/

              And you expect WADA to carry on a comprehensive international testing program how? With food stamps? Dick Pound sitting on the corner with a tin cup? (no, wait, that last one....)

                The U.S. should tell Rogge to fire Dick Pound before anymore money is sent. Besides the U.S. paid more last year than China and Greece combined paid this year and last, and they still qualified to hold the games.

                  how many other countries have to pay $1 million a year? probably not many. WADA is worthless.

                        Yeah, maybe chump change compared to the tremendous waste our government perpetrates every year, but waste is waste and I seriously doubt it's proportional to the needs of WADA.

                            If countries like the United States stop producing designer steroids , and teaching their athletes like Regina Jacobs, Mary Decker, TJ Hunter and on and on to cheat , the world would not need WADA. Its not Dick Pounds fault the US Chemist have such a huge demand for their products. The way the world views the USA these days, the chances of an American 2012 Olympics are about as good as a CBS "Christmas with the Taliban TV special."

                              Gutsy statement. Though I don't think you can blame the United States for "teaching" their athletes to use designer steroids. This isn't East Germany, nor even a remote analogue.
