nearly all the medal winners dope in women's 1500m

if you take a look at world finals you'll find that most of them are probable dopers or banned later

IAAF says more positives are coming. I wonder what the strategy is behind funding back-dated testing. Maybe there's another wave of doping in cycling scandal coming?
I hope so. Not that sport is filthy. We sort of know that is the case but I hope that back-dated testing can nail as many athletes as possible. It is a reasonable practice that, along with harsher bans, can balance the risk/reward situation to encourage cleaner sports, cycling included.

More 2012 London medals being redistributed.

London 2012 discus silver medallist Darya Pishchalnikova 2nd offense, 10 year ban.

European 800m champion Yelena Arzhakova has been banned for two years for longitudinal profile AAF. Russia retested May 2012 samples.

Cakir Alptekin could face a lifetime ban, with the athlete having already served a two-year doping ban after testing positive ... in 2004 as a teenage steeplechaser. That's more shocking than the second positive.

For a pretty bloody obvious reason, Dirty.

There are clearly pockets of particularly bad practice in different countries. If I had to guess Ireland for example, I'd say gaelic football, rugby and horses. GB, rugby league especially, a bit in football, and again the horsies - lots of jockeys on the gear. Suspect a few of the boxers too.

Russia's clearly has a pocket in track and field. There is no denying it. If they are being caught in bunches, just as they're about to host a World's, I suspect WADA have intervened, because RUSADA's moscow lab was a shambles - hell, I think the sister of one of the lab's head honches was a steroid pusher!! Years of doping with impunity suddenly replaced with wada and labs that kinda know what they're doing.

I'm trying to stand the exact details up now. I know some of the samples that *would* have gone to Moscow now go direct to Cologne (Köln). the upsurge in Russian positives seems to coincide, but RUSADA itself, to be fair, has also stepped up efforts recently. And turns out my lizard brain remembered shambles, because apparently WADA came right out and described it as such.
 
So wasn't this the cleanest olympics ever. :rolleyes:

The testers were more advanced and bla bla bla.

Oh wait. Russian athletes shat all over this supposed advanced testing.

I bet they'll get it all fixed by the summer of 2016 so Rio can be the next "cleanest olympics ever"

Sad thing is that it probably was the cleanest Olympics in a long time, with the bar set so low. Don't forget Bolt.

Vino winning gold underscores how thorough the testing was in London...

Good thing the ITT was clean.
