Armstrong drug fallout
Howard Sattler spoke to SBS cycling commentator Matthew Keenan about the fall out of Lance Armstrong's decision to not defend drug allegations that have been made against him by the US Anti-Doping Agency. Armstrong will be stripped of all his results since August 1998, including his seven Tour de France titles.
testing any athlete, particularly when considering variables such as multi-million dollar sponsorhip from billion dollar industries like nike, adidas, energy drinks, supplement companies, etc, etc becomes an exercise in futility because there is so much money at stake ie for every dollar invested in inventing new drug testing procedures, there is multiple times that amount invested in creating new drugs, masking agents, etc to beat them. it is not only futile but obtuse to expect ANY athlete to admit to using because that would be career and legacy suicide. said athlete would instantly lose everything they've been working their guts out for (probably their entire life) and risk being shunned, banned from the sport/activity they love. to presume any competitive athlete is/was or is/was not on drugs is therefore ludicrous. further, performance enhancing drugs have existed for as long as sports/athletics. steroids have been around since 1932 (used extensively on everyone from underweight children to soldiers and athletes, they were actually considered a health tonic until the 1970s. my point is, why attack living legends like Armstrong after the hose has bolted (parden pun). might as well continue with Jesse Owens while they're at it. i agree with Armstrong, to the morons hell bent on ruining a great athlete's legacy, get over your jealousy and get a life.Lost Property: Integrity Friday 24 August, 2012 - 10:45 PM
Great choice of words. Nuts!
I detest competitive sport...or dancing, or anything which deminishes a child's simple joy in movement.
When sport becomes a job (or profession), it's not fun. Remember the days when sporting people actually held down jobs and their committment was evident?
We're not dogs, or horses, born, trained or programmed to "perform".
Children are not stupid and cannot be trained to run around in circles everyday to make them fit or perfect or anything else than what we have made them.Dellas Friday 24 August, 2012 - 8:55 PM
