  • What do we know about IGF-1?

    I see on letsrun that it's rumored to be the PED du jour. Here's wiki's info:

    previous discussion didn't have much about its current use in T&F.

    Nothing new about it. It has been part of the growth hormone doping regimen for the better part of 10 years.

            Has it been in the news lately, or a hot topic on letsrun?

                Funny line here:
                While in some sense the public has finally caught on to “steroids,” the high-tech, high-minded athletes have moved on, light years ahead of what the public can conceive of and comprehend. “Steroids” is the Model-T Ford; IGF-1 is the USS Enterprise or the Millennium Falcon.

                  And this is precisely why the throws marks from that old steroid era are so far inferior to those of the current period.[where are those emoticons when I need them?]

                      But you're missing an alternate explanation of why marks are off now. (insert emoticon of a different nature here)
