Ingebritsen is definitely on the sauce. He beat the two mile record by 4 seconds. Komen’s record in the 2 mile and 3000m are one of the best distance track records of all time. Look at the names that are on the list of top 25 names for that 2000m. Ridiculous.
Norway seems to have a quality state run program between him, their triathletes and their winter sports stars.

Tobi Amusan in the women's 100mH must be discussed. For context, when 2022 began she had a PB of 12.49s. Through the course of the season she had shaved off 0.08 and came into the World Champs with a PB of 12.41s. She ran the PB in Paris on the 18th of June.

In the 3 runs in Eugene she went 12.40s (heat), 12.12s (semi) and 12.06s (final). Her semifinal run smashed the previous world record (it was previously 12.20s). The final run was faster but the wind-reading was +2.5m/s, and therefore the time did not count.

So either she's on some serious dope to make such a massive quantum leap in performance in the space of a month, or the wind-meter was faulty in the 12.12s run (it was apparently +0.9m/s).

Update.

She's just been charged for missing three doping tests!

This is big: Issam Asinga - 100m WR holder under 20 (9.89) tests positive for the metabolic modulator GW1516:


Ran HS track in Georgia. Also holds the under 20 American record for the 200m (19.97). Qualified for the World Championships in Budapest. Accepted a full-ride scholarship to run track at Texas A&M.

Lol, that's stuff for weekend warriors who can't affort Aicar. He's either really stupid or it's one of the rare times that someone actually messed up by using shady supplements.
Anyway, it's the USADA, so an under 1 year slap on the wrist ban for tainted supplements is almost a lock.

Yep...here's a study from 2012 showing GW1516 is detectable in urine up to 40 days after a single oral dose of 15mg!


If Asinga's B sample comes back positive - this might be a legitimate tainted supplement case (whey protein, creatine, BCAAs, etc). What doper in his right mind would take an oral compound with a glow time of over a month? Lol.

A lot of "fat burners" and endurance enhancing compounds are spiked with GW1516 apparently. Especially Sr9009 and Sr9011 .

I guess you could also say “what athlete in their right mind would take supplements without knowing what’s in them, especially given that they know they might be contaminated?. I’m just really tired of the supplements excuse. They’re not required to take them. Obviously if they couldn’t claim supplements they would claim tainted food (steak, burrito, etc), but it doesn’t seem as easy to get a result thrown out as with supplements. And usually they have to be a little creative with their stories when they claim tainted food,

So Kemi Adekoya, back from a four year doping ban, seems to be going full Pourseyedi - she has been back from her ban for a few months but has not been seen internationally at all, has run ONE 400m hurdles since her ban, at the Arab Games, and then drops her PB by 0,7 seconds twice across two races to make the final easily. Commentary is giving her the Taoufik Makhloufi treatment, only he hadn't actually got banned to receive those hints.

Swiss commentator was pretty much, yeah, we want to give her the benefit of the doubt, but when you come back from a 4 year ban just to smash your PRs over and over again it becomes really difficult for us to prentend that it isn't fishy.
 
I wondered at the time that because she quickly made an admission and didn’t appeal, that perhaps THC wasn’t the only PED that turned up in that blood test.
Who would be willing to cover for her though? I know Nike was totally behind her and even made a commercial hyping her up, but then she totally blew it...

She is a very polarizing person/athlete though, I'll give her that.
