  • Jamaicans admitted to doping

    Did anyone else check the article on Universal sports about the 4 athletes who admitted to doping?

    Yohan Blake, Lansford Spence, Marvin Anderson and Allodin Fothergill all admitted to taking ban substances before the Jamaican National champs.

    Wow.

    I hate to hear that for the sport. You hate it anytime one of these young athletes makes a poor choice. I'm sure Bolt is upset by this association since his training partner is involved.

    And how will this affect Jamaica and it's overall image? I know that doping positives in the past have hurt the image of the US and other nations.

    That this revelation was confirmed after the WC seems a bit scripted. Seriously doubt that's a coincidence.

      They admitted taking a stimulant that's not mentioned by name, but is in a category of related substances as far as I understand it. Just like Tori Edwards. It's really not worth getting worked up about.

      They're hardly running down a track with a needle full of designer steroids hanging out of their arms!

            Thanks.

            OK, so this is bad news for Jamaican track. Blake looked very good this season, and we may have found out why. And how incompetent do the JAAA look now seeing that the assigned disciplinary panel actually cleared Blake and the others before an appeal was made?

            ......now I'm just going to wait for the clever posters that will somehow link this story to Bolt and the success of the other Jamaican athletes in Berlin.....

              ((Irrespective of the fact I know prudent information regarding this case))

              I have a feeling this topic might get ugly pretty soon .

                Smart move. And you are right, this is going to get nasty. I think we all know which group of posters will pounce and proclaim the entire Jamaican track team dirty after this.......nevermind that the runners that admitted to being dirty didn't go to Berlin.

                        re Racers Track Club athletes

                        Actually only Blake and Marvin Anderson are members of Racers.What happens if the offense merits only a public warning?I would think that after the Torri Edwards fiasco the lords of the sport would move cautiously in levying a two-year ban here.

                          The news release is quite brief and doesn't add much to what we already knew. In effect the athletes have said, Yes, those positive A and B samples are ours. They haven't admitted to knowingly taking performance-enhancing drugs. Ignorance is no excuse, I know, and the penalties are the same whether or not they knew what they were taking. Still, it's too early for us to start making moral judgments.

                            It says they admitted to taking a banned stimulant, not that they admitted to having positive drug tests.

                            I dont recall any news of any of them admitting to taking banned substances or anything like that, so what did we already know?

                              Will the tempest be in a teapot(this board) or in real life?
