    The Doping thread

    Thread to keep up to date with the latest drug cheats. We had Spanish cyclist Maria Isabel Moreno being the first to test positive, there was a Taiwanese baseball player as well.

    Today there are reports of two more positive tests. Apparently North Korea's Kim Jong-Su who won a Silver medal in the shooting tested positive for a band substance and Vietnamese gymnast Thi Ngan Thuong Do also tested positive after finishing 82nd and last in the Women's floor...wonder if she thinks it was worth it?

    Why would you need performance enhancing drugs for shooting?

    My local girl Goldie Sayers unimpressed with the javelin gold medallist Barbora Spotakova according to The Mirror.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Whenever athletes say these sorts of things the alleged culprit always ends up being caught. I remember someone saying to Darren Campbell in Sydney 2000, "it'll be gold by the morning" after he finished second in the 200, can't remember the name of the Greek guy who won gold but he pulled out of the Athens Olympics after a, ahem motorcycle accident and was soon found to be a drugs cheat.

    Think if you fail a drugs Tests all medals from your career prior to then should be stripped itbt

    Either Sayers is talking out of her bum or the Mirror journalist has failed to understand things. Špotáková is the world champion and won at the world athletics final; she's won one and finished second at another of the two world meets she entered this season.

    Silver medallist Mariya Abakumova, on the other hand, had a personal best of 64.08 metres coming into the Games and has never been up there. For my money, Sayers was talking about her, and the Mirror journo went with the best story.
