Youngsters are so easily led , they adopt " idols " as role models , so references to lounging around coffee shops , easy to believe !

Hard work as against a life on the bike would be easy to ignore . IF they knew the backstory of their coaches/mentors , would they then take the easy route ?

" Donati Report " portrays Oz as the source of so much PED Product that the Criminal Element must always be on the lookout for easy marks /
well, they never gave a hoot about Werner Reiterer and M Vinnicombe did they.

ASADA have just released information relating to an investigation into cycling in Australia (this is different to the Cycling Australia review).

Media and full details available at:

http://www.asada.gov.au/media/cyclin...stigation.html

On the outside at least, it looks initially like a thorough review will be undertaken by ASADA independent of CA and with a focus specifically on doping within cycling.

bingo.

we got some bites of the apple.

Now just ask Elka Graham who offered her gear. Where Scott Miller got the steroids that turned up in his safe from. Why Thorpe was using Touretski. The Touretski whitewash in 2002. The lutenizing hormone. Etc etc et al et al. Come on folx, swimming is where the gem is at wrt doping in Oz.

Feeling sorry for Thorpe?

Genuinely nice kid who got used?

No wonder he's struggling with mental health since...

Too big a secret to not come out... At some point. Maybe better sooner than later...

Huh? What? Oh, that was all soooooo long ago. [Reach into pocket for IOC response card and clears throat]
-It's in the past. $sport_XYZ is cleaner than ever.
-Athletes are the problem. $sport_XYZ is clean, not like cycling
-Drug testing works. We catch cheaters all the time, after the cameras are off and everyone has gone home.
-Drug testing is advanced. It is *very* difficult to figure out if athletes are doping. That's why testing is so infrequent. See: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-33747_16...ld-for-doping/

Huh? no doping scandal here.. No one in the IOC knows what you are talking about. You are one of those conspiracy crazies, right??? Look over there! Another dirty cyclist!!!!

Blackcat you need to figure out how to get the IOC to pay for your silence. Maybe Pat might give you a trip to the TdF if you play your cards right.... Either that or mock you...

Too much water under the bridge, it's too quiet in swimming right now, too big a secret to hold. Someone will break, probably Ian himself. After the worlds...

I dont think the athletes are the problem. Like Martin Hardie. The pressure at the 2012 London Olympics was immense, and absurd. The swimmers were expect to bring home a swag of metals

the swimmers have a halo more precious than Jesus at Easter

Thats quite amazing Ian Thorpe's swimming coach was charged with possession of steroids and I didn't even know about it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gennadi_Touretski

Cyclists are the dirty ones though. This is going to make for a fun youtube vid tomorrow...

who was Elka Graham a housemate of? (not a partner). She lived as housemate with Miller. Before Miller was put up by Alan Jones. Before his marriage to that tv model/personality. And Miller thumped that guy in Atlanta at worlds in 1995, the year before the Olympics. They said the guy he thumped was a neo nazi who was beating up his partner. Perhaps he was. But perhaps it was roid rage like Nick D'Arcy. The public gotta wise up. Enable doping, then when the athletes have breakdowns, or positives, wipe hands of them. Dajka was treated horrendously by AIS I thought. (someone could correct me). Apart from D'Arcy and Monk, in Oz, the swimmers are treated like masters of the universe, and given hero worship in the media. And then they are expected to hold up to that standard. Its risible.
