Bolt remains beacon of hope: Sports medicine expert

Aug 6 2013, 3:40am CDT | by IANS

Kingston (Jamaica), Aug 6 (IANS/CMC) Six-time Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt remains a beacon of hope in a sport rocked by elite athletes testing positive for banned substances, a leading sports medicine specialist in Jamaica has said.

Kingston (Jamaica), Aug 6 (IANS/CMC) Six-time Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt remains a beacon of hope in a sport rocked by elite athletes testing positive for banned substances, a leading sports medicine specialist in Jamaica has said.

Paul Wright says Jamaica would suffer from infinite distress should Bolt's name fall on the wrong side of any drug test.

"Usain Bolt has been tested more often, I think, than all of the athletes in Jamaica, and he is well aware of his importance to the sport," declared Wright, the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCo) doping control officer.

"I remember, and this is a quote from Usain, 'if I test positive, the whole Jamaica dead' and that is true."

Jamaica's sprint queen Veronica Campbell Brown, former 100-metre world record holder Asafa Powell, and Beijing Olympics silver medallist Sherone Simpson are among those who recently returned adverse analytical findings. All three are seeking to prove their innocence.

"As I told another interviewer, I said I would drop down dead. There is so much on it and he is well aware of his responsibilities," Wright said while addressing a function in Kingston.

Wright is warning athletes, some of whom he believes are taking undetectable performance-enhancing drugs, that they will be caught.

"We are going to catch everybody.We all know that there are chemists who change around these steroids. All you have to do is change one of the wings of these steroids, it will have the same effect and it's undetectable," Wright explained.

"If you are going to detect that in somebody's urine, the computer has to recognise it and that is where you have to feed standards into the computer that the computer can recognise. If there isn't a standard, it can't recognize."

What If Sports Stars Were Fat? Including Rory McIlroy, Henry Shefflin And Tommy Bowe

Sep 16 2014 4:45am CDT | Source: balls

Balls.ie Professional sports stars are like fine-tuned athletic machines. In the modern era of specialised diet programmes and rigorous training regimes, it is a rare sight to see an athlete carrying a bit of extra weight. The novelty of what has become colloquially known as the “fat-lete” has almost become extinct. If you ever wondered, even just out of sheer bitterness, what a certain sporting hero would look like if they were dangerously portly, look no furth ...

Chelsea FC: Can the Blues Run Away with the Premier League?

Sep 16 2014 3:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Before we begin, constituting what "running away with the league" means seems paramount. There is no clear-cut definition, but for the purposes of this article—and hopefully our posterity—the scenario could be explained as follows: "A side has ‘run away with their league’ should a distance of at least 10 points exist between them and the runners-up come season’s end." Obviously the mathematics may deceive historians on occasion, but should a team wi ...
