In the Farah section above, he said he's going to release his blood tests data publicly. He's one of 8 British athletes doing so.

A 'significant' number of 'major' names in world athletics will this week be confirmed as historic dopers and be stripped of medals won as long ago as 2005, the Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The development is the result of the long-term pursuit of drug cheats by the International Association of Athletics Federations, and will come just as the world governing body are under fire accused of failing to tackle doping effectively.

It is believed that one of those set to be exposed, as a result of re-testing old samples using new technology, and monitoring of developments over time in athlete blood passports (ABPs), could be double world champion Tatyana Tomashova.

'There's going to be a bombshell,' said a source. 'We're talking about big names, multiple names. It's taken time to nail some of these athletes but the message will be clear to all cheats — your past can and will catch up with you.'

It is understood there are no Britons involved in the cases to be announced this week. The timing will no doubt lead to scepticism that athletics' world governing body has been stung into action by recent adverse publicity.

According the Australian 100m hurdler Sally Pearson drugs do not work, they only help with athletes who lack self confidence and need a mental boost. She said this in an interview on Australia radio when asked how she could be the best in the world if she was clean and others had cheated. While I was under no illusion that she was definitely clean these comments raise a huge red flag, why would she make comments like this if she was clean.
 
I thought the Daily Mail had been derided on this forum as rubbish. I think that description is a standard put-down, mainly by lefty malcontents, who dislike its right-leaning appeal to its solidly middle class, female-centered audience. Its online version is claimed to be the world's most viewed newspaper website. Its sports coverage is good in my view, often covering events or issues in my sport (tennis) that other newspapers don't bother with.

It is rubbish. Pushes an agenda of hate against pretty much anyone who is not a white middle class straight english man.

According to the sunday times today the person who took out the super-injunction is male.

The exact quote - "A top sportsman, unarguably No 1 in his calling, has used this device in the last week. The goal? To keep information away from the public. But surely there will be a price to pay. I wonder if, in the end, it's worth the bother. Surely it would be better if he just had a heart-to-heart with his wife!

(its in Rod Liddle's column)

You're confusing two separate matters. Joe Hart shagged Katie Price and doesn't want the world to know.

oh, my bad. I think I'd rather people knew I was doping than to be in Hart's predicament.

Yeah seperate issue. I doubt Linford Christie would have tweeted about that.

At the time LC made his injunction Tweet the first gossip of a sportsperson having taken out an injunction the previous Saturday was just breaking and it wasn't until the following day it became clear it was Hart/Price. Since LC is currently the sole source for this story, the possibility should not be excluded that he's been as much a pillock as people here making the exact same mistake.

So whats the bomb shell.

Also what's this about jo hart.

Also lol at the idea that releasing your profiles proves you are clean. When brad and lance djs it in 09, releasing clearly dodgy profiles, saying that anyone who didn't say they were clean is a psudoscientist and taking credit for the simple act of releasing them.
