IOC Accuses Female Russians of "Systematic Doping"


The head of the International Olympic Committee's medical team has said that Russia's female track and field athletes are guilty of "systematic doping" and tampering with their urine samples used for doping tests.

Medical chief Arne Ljungqvist said: "I think it is just frustrating to find that such type of cheating -- planned cheating -- is still going on. That's very disappointing to find." 7 female athletes are on provisional suspension.

The scandal comes as a blow to Russia, with one of the athletes favoured to win the 800 and 1,500 metre races.

  How interesting!  
It just so happens that quite a few people consider the IOC to be systematically dopey.

  pot calling the kettle black...  
the IOC has already sold out any sincere credibility behind the Olympic games...

It's not as though these countries have a moral standard to strive for is all I'm saying.

Heh, my sentiments exactly....go figure, the Russians looking to pull out all stops to make sure they look like the "best" at yet another endeavour...must be roids in the water or something.

  Speaking of roids in the water  
Think it could be a legit excuse? Just get the paper work showing its in the water where they live & hope they don't notice the fact that the concentration is too low to affect you (supposedly).

  Just for..  
A little balance, considering some of the comments..some of you might want to remember about Marion Jones. Last I heard she isn't Russian..
