Maria Sharapova & meldonium: Which drugs are on Wada's watch list? - BBC Sport
For a substance to be added to Wada's prohibited list involves a three-stage consultation process, which lasts several months and includes input from Wada experts, its health, medical and research committee (HMRC) and its executive committee.

According to Wada, a substance may be "considered" for the prohibited list if it meets two of the following three criteria:

Enhances performance
Poses a threat to athlete health
Violates the spirit of sport
A substance can be added to the prohibited list without first featuring on the watch list.

Meldonium - or mildronate as it was known to 28-year-old Russian Sharapova - is no longer on the 2016 watch list, but several other substances remain on it. //&! aria Sharapova's failed drugs test was "reckless beyond description", according to former World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound. -

Alberto Salazar's response: What questions remain? - BBC News
Salazar has demanded the BBC retracts its allegations. The BBC says it stands by the journalism in the programme. Within two hours of his open letter going online, it was reported that the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) had been investigating allegations that Salazar had skirted anti-doping rules. The reports suggested USADA had taken statements from more than 12 witnesses. The BBC now understands that at least six former Oregon Project members have been contacted by USADA in the past month, and that an inquiry into Salazar is being led by chief USADA investigator Bill Bock. USADA does not confirm investigations. [...] The BBC understands USADA is also investigating allegations that Salazar skirted anti-doping.

Only 1% of the athletes tested each year are found to be taking banned substances - the same percentage as in 1985 - and last year Wada set up a special working group to investigate why more cheats are not being detected. The group's damning report points out multiple failures including a lack of independence among national anti-doping organisations, and doping officers being offered bribes, being harassed and even threatened. It also said instead of Wada being recognised "as the leader in the fight against doping in sport and supported by the stakeholders, it is viewed as an irritant". [...] And Pound added there was evidence of "potential interference of the governments in the operations of national anti-doping organisations to make sure domestic athletes are not caught". ... >> money is missing in anti-doping.

And she believes the disgraced cyclist would “sully” the sport that Britain has enjoyed huge success in over the last five years. Wellington said: “I am angry. Angry at Lance — and others — for doping. Angry at his perpetual lies, defamations and deceit. Angry that he hurt, bullied, coerced, manipulated, corrupted, insulted, sued and cheated. “I believe that Lance’s participation in triathlon would sully the reputation of our sport and undermine its fragile credibility. “When questioned, he made his actions seem banal, like pumping up his tyres or ensuring he had a water bottle in his bike cage.” --- Interesting thing is that WTC never formally apologized itself to the triathlon community for its lack of judgement, paying him $2m for a 2 year return, and @Panama 70.3 2012 not testing him (the Top 3).

Armstrong war keiner, der durch das von ihm betriebene Doping Waffengleichheit mit der ebenfalls dopenden Konkurrenz herstellte. Sondern er nutzte die sich ihm bietenden Möglichkeiten zum Betrug, um sich einen Vorteil zu verschaffen gegenüber all jenen, die weniger weit zu gehen bereit oder in der Lage waren.

Dieses Vorteils, dem Kampf mit ungleichen Waffen zu seinen Gunsten, war er sich stets sicher. Wie sonst hätte er ernsthaft glauben können, nach zweijähriger Auszeit, weit jenseits des Höchstleistungsalters, es wieder mit den Besten bei der Tour de France aufnehmen zu können? Wie sonst hatte er sich in einem Duell mit den weltbesten Triathleten Siegchancen ausrechnen können?

With Triathlon: Armstrong wollte der Welt zeigen, dass er der größte ist.

Exclusive – Obree says UCI not fit for purpose | We Are Free Agents
As someone who had his own share of battles with the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Graeme Obree is well-placed to judge the effectiveness of an organisation currently defending themselves against accusations of at best incompetence, and at worst being complicit in systemic doping in professional cycling.

“I don’t think the UCI are a fit body to be running the sport. The UCI is an autocratic, old boys’ network all the way through the levels of the pyramid. I think there’s no way of repairing that organisation.”

> the whole shabang points that LA and UCI are covering each ones back. UCI was and still is at least looking over the issue of doping culture in cycling. at worst it was complicit and helped cover-up the tracks of positive samples and other evidence.
> IOC has every reason to suspend (road) cycling from the olympic program for at least one cycle because UCI isn't willing to clean the sport and itself.
> next up, Weightlifting, and other Sports

Armstrong: Amnesty the only way to save cycling
“As much as I’m in the eye of the storm, this is not about one man, one team, one director. This is about cycling and to be frank it’s about ALL endurance sports. Publicly lynching one man and his team will not solve this problem.”
> Armstrong is covering his buddies. Armstrong isn't honest about being sorry. He is sorry that he got caught. Tygart from USADA, USADA were the one agency that brought LA to justice. Not UCI, not WADA. Anything forward without USADA is half-measures. Isn't worth anything.

> amnesty program under the helm of UCI, isn't public, isn't transparent, isn't accountable, won't remove the people - all people - involved.

Travis Tygart tells ’60 Minutes’ that Lance Armstrong is still lying
Asked about Armstrong’s denial of allegations that the UCI had covered up a 2001 positive drug test at the Tour of Switzerland, Tygart said evidence gathered by USADA indicates otherwise.
“I think [UCI’s] involvement was a lot deeper in him pulling off this heist than he was willing to admit to,”
>> UCI looks more and more in one boat with Armstrong.
- Travis Tygart of USADA considered a hero, the man that kept pushing and caused the fall of Lance Armstrong
Lance Armstrong’s lawyers say the cyclist will talk more about drug use in the sport, just likely not to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency ...
- LA is not willing to help clean up the sport

"Arrogant" and "deceitful" - WADA's damning verdict on the UCI | | Road cycling news, Bike reviews, Commuting, Leisure riding, Sportives and more
World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) president John Fahey has branded the UCI as “arrogant” and “deceitful” in a strongly worded statement issued this afternoon in response to world cycling’s governing body’s announcement yesterday that it has scrapped the Independent Commission it had ordered to examine its own role in the Lance Armstrong scandal.

> UCI not doing its job to clean up the sport it governs. IOC should warn UCI and threaten to scrap cycling from Olympic program till further notice

Radsport: Ex-Usada-Chef bezichtigt Armstrong der Lüge - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Gegenwind für Lance Armstrong wird immer heftiger: Der ehemalige Usada-Chef Terry Madden warf dem Ex-Radprofi erneut vor, dem Verband eine Spende angeboten zu haben. Armstrong hatte dies bei seiner TV-Dopingbeichte bestritten.

Bereits nach der Ausstrahlung des ersten Teils hatte John Fahey, Chef der Welt-Antidoping-Agentur (Wada) Armstrong vorgeworfen, weiterhin die Wahrheit zu verschleiern.

Der gefallene Rad-Profi hatte im Gespräch mit Winfrey bestritten, auch bei seinem Comeback 2009 gedopt zu haben. Laut Fahey ist die Usada jedoch im Besitz eindeutiger Blutproben Armstrongs, die "mit absoluter Sicherheit" zeigten, dass er auch bei seiner Rückkehr in den Profisport mit verbotenen Substanzen nachgeholfen habe.

Kathy LeMond: Lance Armstrong embarrassed, not sorry - More Sports - David Epstein -
SI: What did you and Greg make of the part one of the Oprah interview?
LeMond: It's all about how he can forward himself. This is not authentic. If this were authentic, he would ask to talk to us and ask, 'What can I do to heal you? I really hurt you.'
SI: Are you convinced by anything in his sort of general admission of mistakes?
LeMond: No. No. Honestly, I don't feel that he's even in there. I do believe he's embarrassed, kind of. One of our lawyers has a house in Hawaii just down from Lance and I talked to him a couple days ago and he said every other year he's been there he sees Lance out riding with locals and everybody's kind of excited. Now he said he's never with anybody out on the road. He's by himself. ... I think it's hit him. People don't want to be near him. He's become a pariah. I think he's flailing, but I don't have any reason to believe what he's saying is true. The parts I know of what he's saying aren't true! Or only partially true.

A Letter to Lance Armstrong: A Fellow Pro Athlete’s Plea
But the central tenet of being a professional athlete is not winning; it is fair play. In your warped world, everyone is a cheater, but in reality, 99% of us are doing it right. A commitment to fair play is THE defining element of the profession. We sign agreements to it. Regularly. If you violate that, you may seek forgiveness as a person, but you need to find a new job. The public may not understand sports as a profession, which could lead them to feel sorry for you, but we will help them understand.

>> Caught Cheats have a very very very very hard time for re-entry in the professional triathlon world post-ban. The triathlon community (pros) pat them self on the back for their race cheats.

>> The public may forgive him. The public who don't give up everything else to compete in elite sports. The public sees a human being. But other elite athletes see others too who were hurt by the actions and the doping of Cheats. Its the viewing angle & experience that differs (public/athlete).

BBC Sport - Lance Armstrong's apology questioned by Wada president
John Fahey believes Armstrong ducked key issues relating to his cheating in a TV interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Both Fahey and the United States Anti-Doping Authority (Usada) want the disgraced cyclist to explain the full extent of his doping "under oath".
"That is his way forward if he is serious," Fahey told the BBC.
"Don't go on a show with a woman who will give benign questions, lead you to the answers and not follow up when you don't answer properly.
"But is he going to do it? Probably not. If he was prepared to do it, he probably wouldn't go down the Oprah Winfrey route in the first place."

> because he could (if not even would - with certainty) face criminal and civil charges with potential prison time and financial ruin. he again put himself first. trying to control this whole downfall.

Armstrong critic Paul Kimmage puts the boot into Oprah for ‘soft’ interview - Other Sports, Sport -
"When he mentioned shady dealings with the UCI, the logical follow-up question is to ask about those shady dealings.

"Instead it was all very cosy and she let him off the hook."

Kimmage said he was left with the feeling that Armstrong had little or no contrition for what he had done.

He added: "It was obvious that this guy had just one regret and that was that he was caught. He doesn't give a damn about anyone except Lance Armstrong.

"If he really wants to help the sport he needs to present himself at (United States Anti-Doping Agency chief executive) Travis Tygart's door and give a full account of what he did and who helped him.

"That's the only way he can do the sport any service now and repair the damage he has done."

Fall Armstrong: Dopingexperte Franke zweifelt an Geständnis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Nach Ansicht von Dopingexperte Werner Franke hat das TV-Geständnis von Lance Armstrong nichts mit Einsicht zu tun. Der ehemalige Radstar wolle damit nur eine Aussage vor der Grand Jury verhindern. Im IOC wird gar über einen Ausschluss des Radsports von Olympischen Spielen nachgedacht.


Für Armstrong sei es am wichtigsten, dass er nicht vor einer Grand Jury aussagen müsse, glaubt Franke. "Dort könnte er Dinge gefragt werden, die bis jetzt noch gar nicht bekannt sind. Und das wäre dann noch viel kribbeliger, als wir uns das alle vorstellen können. Bei der Wahrheitsfindung sind die amerikanischen Gerichte nicht zimperlich", so Franke.

>> IOC could ban cycling for 2 games if it is true that UCI knew of doping and helped to cover up traces of doping.

BBC Sport - Lance Armstrong: Swiss lab head denies assisting American
>> doping: it is a cat and mouse game Saugy was responding to claims made by the head of the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) Travis Tygart, who told US television programme 60 Minutes that Saugy had told him over dinner he had met Armstrong and his US Postal Team manager Johan Bruyneel at the request of the UCI in 2002 to explain how the EPO test worked. The UCI insists the meetings were arranged as a "deterrent" to show riders they were getting tough on doping and not to show them how to beat the system. However Saugy added: "It's a fundamental right for the sportsmen to know the scientific basis of an analysis." --- Lance Armstrong will have something to gain but plenty to lose when he is interviewed by chat show host Oprah Winfrey. "I'm sure Armstrong and his team will look back at all his statements to make sure he is clear for five years. Otherwise it might put him in jeopardy." "Now he has lost a lot of his credibility and I think he might be playing his last card - to try to appear very human and perhaps touch people's hearts. "He is so ambitious and he might think there is a tiny chance of saving his political career." [ if not even doing some triathlon before that ] --- BUT World Anti-Doping Code rules state his lifetime ban cannot be reduced to less than eight years. WADA and USADA doping officials could agree to reduce the ban further depending on what new information Armstrong provides and his level of cooperation.
