Her next words, though, were even more damning. “The chronological coincidence of the TUEs just before major events raises suspicions with me based on my experience of patterns and ways that I’ve seen other riders try and beat the system.”

Cooke was also fiercely critical of the efforts to tackle doping, saying that Ukad held a “chocolate sword” because of its lack of resources. But she also attacked the body for not doing enough to investigate wrongdoing. She said that several times she had gone to the authorities, including after being asked to dope by a team manager, yet been fobbed off.

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. -

And admits he took them because he "wanted to look as good as possible". He says it was because he wanted to be bigger and stronger while training for the match. Newsbeat recently revealed one in 10 men training in UK gyms struggle with a body anxiety known as "bigorexia", or muscle dysmorphia. It's been compared to anorexia in reverse - where men become obsessed with putting on muscle. Depression, steroid abuse and even suicide are effects of bigorexia.

Adidas to end IAAF sponsorship deal early in wake of doping crisis - BBC Sport
Earlier this month, the commission's chairman, Dick Pound, delivered a second, damning report, which revealed that "corruption was embedded" within the IAAF under former president Lamine Diack. Within days, a decision at the highest level in Adidas was taken to terminate the relationship. It is understood the German multinational believes the doping revelations in Pound's reports constitute a breach of its agreement with the IAAF. The 11-year sponsorship deal was signed in 2008 and was due to run until 2019. At the time of signing, it was reported the deal would be worth about $33m (£23m). But sources have told the BBC the figure is much higher, and that in terms of cash and product, it is worth about $8m (£5.6m) per year. This would mean the projected lost revenue for the IAAF over the next four years will be more than $30m (£21m). //&! Unglaubwürdig. -

Athletics doping crisis: Secret plan to delay naming Russian cheats - BBC Sport
A senior figure at athletics' world governing body was planning to delay naming Russian drug cheats in the run-up to the 2013 World Championships. The plan is outlined in an email from IAAF deputy general secretary Nick Davies to Papa Massata Diack. Diack, who worked as an IAAF marketing consultant at the time, is the son of former IAAF president Lamine Diack. Davies wrote he needed to "sit down" with the anti-doping team to discuss "Russian skeletons in the cupboard".

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.

How I became a drug cheat athlete to test the system - BBC News
Despite taking EPO for seven weeks, seeing steady rises in my haemoglobin & haematocrit counts & gaining a significant performance benefit, I was clean. He said he could see "traces" of what I had done but "not of a sufficient magnitude to elicit an adverse analytical finding" in the passport. "There is no evidence that you have injected yourself with EPO," said Lundby. "If you were an athlete, you would have gotten away with it." This confirmed my fears that the passport had put a stop to the worst excesses of the Lance Armstrong era but was not sensitive enough to pick up a careful programme of micro-dosing. [...] EPO having such a short detection time the testers have to get pretty lucky to get a positive from a urine sample. I thought the passport was supposed to be the answer but, like Howman told me, it is not a cure for all sport's ills. [...] athletes who choose to compete clean deserve our utmost respect and admiration.

A second offense will result in a ban from the league, with the opportunity to apply for reinstatement after one year. // for too long, officials looked away - on purpose.

Netherlands to Continue In World Cup Despite Doping Scandal - National Report | National Report
On Saturday and Sunday, FIFA officials administered random drug tests to all of the participants in the 2014 World Cup, and during those tests, it was revealed that six players from the Netherlands and one player from Belgium have tested positive. “These seven players, whom we will not identify, have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.  It is a shame, a real shame,” says Dr. Giorgio Bertolucci, the FIFA official in charge of drug testing. “We have privately issued fines to each of the players, and will monitor them closely to ensure they do not cheat in the future.  The clubs have also been fined, and three fitness staff, two from Netherlands and one from Belgium, have been expelled from these games.”

BBC News - Steroids can benefit athletes for a decade after use
Norwegian scientists had previously published work that showed the existence of a "muscle memory". This suggested that if people exercised when they were young, their muscles grew more easily when they exercised later in life. Continue reading the main story “ Start Quote In science if you cheat you are out for life, and my personal view is that it should be similar for athletes” Prof Kristian Gundersen University of Oslo The same team has now looked at the impact of a brief exposure to testosterone on mice. They found that three months after the drug was withdrawn, their muscles grew by 30% after six days of exercise. A control group of mice saw growth of just 6% in the same time period.

"BBC" - Horizon 2014 The Power of the Placebo - YouTube
ie neurotransmitter PGE2 downregulation to exert oneself further. ie own opiate production to reduce pain. ... we have the receptors in our brain, and the ability to produce neurotransmitters/hormones to connect to those connectors. and thus ie reduce pain reception by producing own chemical in the brain - a opiate. ... how people do with their condition has a lot to do with their attitude. and it is all about our expectation. feelings. and knowledge. bc our thoughts and expectations can trigger chemical releases / or inhibition in our body/brain. if we expect the placebo to do something, it can make our brains to release the appropriate chemicals to be able to achieve/attain those expectations. Even hypnosis can act as a placebo. Extra strength, non deceptive. Even the Practitioner - Patient relationship/interaction does matter about the outcome, a more positive outcome of the treatment.

BBC News - Gene doping: Sport's biggest battle?
This could be a battle like no other in sport. The authorities are so concerned, they have been preparing for it for more than 10 years. But it is still unclear whether they have the tools to test for it - or whether anyone has done it successfully. It is gene doping. [...] The authorities, the athletes, the fans may need to agree a whole new definition of what we want sport to mean.

Winter Olympic Snub Casts Shadow on Elite Sport in Germany - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"The Olympics are too big and too expensive, and decisions about them are made from the outside. The athletes and officials may not care that it's the general public that has to pay. But the general public definitely cares." Winter Olympics are an expensive and risky undertaking. In 2006, in Turin, the Olympics proved a financial disaster, with the region ultimately having to pick up the tab for a budget shortfall of €25 million. Olympic planners in Vancouver, in 2010, were only able to narrowly stay within their budget because the province of British Columbia, the Canadian government and the IOC all chipped in with extra financial support. [...] Olympics "no" vote in Bavaria shocking, because he believes it amounts to "an ominous message" that people simply feel elite sports are "no longer important."

Prozess im Eisschnelllauf: Claudia Pechstein will Schadenersatz - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Wir greifen den Internationalen Sportgerichtshof Cas als Institution an, wir halten ihn für kein geeignetes Schiedsgericht", sagt der Münchner Anwalt schon vor Prozessbeginn und schiebt damit die Angriffslinie nach vorn. Im Prozess will er ein Urteil erzwingen, das es Sportlern künftig ermöglichen soll, auch zivilrechtlich in ihren Ländern gegen ein Urteil des Cas vorzugehen. [...] In der Schweiz sei man "nicht gut aufgehoben, wenn man Gerechtigkeit will". Das sehe man ja daran, wie ungeschoren die der Korruption verdächtigen Herren des Weltfußballverbands Fifa davonkämen.

Doping-Geschichte: Der Unfug des Innenministers | ZEIT ONLINE
>> Welchen Elite Sport will Deutschland? so wie es schaut keinen Sauberen. Und keine Aufklaerung. "Kurzum, es war eine unwürdige Show, die im Sportausschuss aufgeführt wurde. Wenn irgendwann Historiker die Protokolle dieser Sitzung lesen, werden sie sich gehörig wundern, auf welch erbärmlichem Niveau die Aufarbeitung der westdeutschen Dopinggeschichte im Parlament stattgefunden hat. Die Volksvertreter haben zwar Aufklärung gefordert. Gewollt war diese Aufklärung, von wenigen Ausnahmen abgesehen, tatsächlich nicht." + "In den Doping-Strukturen spiegeln sich die politischen Systeme der DDR und der BRD. Im Osten diktierte der Staat, im Westen betrog man föderal und autonom." ... Ist kein Doping Sumpf das ist ein Deutschland ist ein Doping Treibsand Gebiet gewesen. Und wer weiss wer noch alles aktive is in welcher Position auch immer. Mitwisser, mit geritten.
