She is a quite an astonishing character. Amazing sports career.

Watched a lot of the boxing. Have to say that was easily done by her .If you did not know you could have thought it was a qualifier and not a final. Must say the olympics is about the only time I make a point of watching the boxing. Think the Cubans dominated the mens comp.

I'd keep an eye on the Italian mens athletic team. In terms of performance, their improvements are "unusual".

I'm not sure about that. One of the top high jumpers won gold in the high jump and their top sprinter improved his PB by what, 0.15 seconds? Not really earth shattering, just a great Olympics for them.

It's more that he had never run under 10 until this year, the whole 4x100 team have improved a hell of a lot. I read a report a couple of days ago on some WADA stats. In 2017, the country with the most offences, either failed, missed or suspect tests was not Russia, China or the US - it was Italy.

The Italian tally was inflated by a particularly high number of non-analytical ADRVs, those which do not arise from detection of a prohibited substance or method in an athlete’s sample.

The statistics included 77 non-analytical ADRVs against Italian athletes, approaching half - 36 - in bodybuilding and a further 24 in cycling.

A footnote to a table on non-analytical ADRVs stated that among decisions rendered in 2017 but excluded from the table were "210 cases from Italy which involved people that are not a member of any sports federation or association".

Ujah provisionally suspended for testing positive for two body building drugs.

Silver medalist in the 4x100 team so they could all lose their medals if upheld.

Seems like he'd have a tough time overturning it - testing positive for two different drugs that do a very similar thing specifically useful for sprinting seems pretty bang to rights to me.

BTW it was noticable how tiny this thread was for such a major event as the olympics.

Was that due to lack of interest, people using things like twitter instead, or the fact the thread doesn't pop up in the 'latest active threads' bit when there's a new post?

It was the least interested I have ever seen most people in the build up to and during an Olympics. I usually know people who are into sport and take a passing interest and mention something that happened that they enjoyed. Almost no one I know watched any of it. The lack of BBC coverage was probably a factor, time zone, lack of crowds and covid in general but I thought there would be some interest

Imagine letting your relay team-mates down like that

stange555 13-08-2021 03:10 PM

Not hugely surprised by the positive tests so far. There will be more (I am a massive cynic)

B Sample positive. I am surprised by the lack of media about this. Us Brits tend to not mention "one of our own" when they've been caught. Ohuruogu's ban never gets mentioned, nor Christie's or Don's.

Adlerhorst 15-09-2021 12:56 PM

I’m sort of glad they didn’t win. An Olympic silver being taken from you will be hugely gutting, but a gold….

davech 18-02-2022 07:15 PM

Ujah disqualified.

Thank you Google:

Ostarine is for boosting muscle and is an "Investigational New Drug" with a half-life of 24 hours in the system. A bit of mis-calculation?

S-23 is both a male contraceptive(?) and again a muscle booster and fat burner. It is prescription only. It is stronger than normal drugs.

"Accidental contamination" and "Unknowingly consumed a contaminated substance".? Unless it is a mistake, it seems bang to rights to me. Disappointing. Let his team-mates down.
