  1. Still surprising for me that Venus Williams is tested more than John Isner...

    In other news, Lord Coe suggests that independent testing in sport is is the way to go. I agree. You can't police and promote. The responsibility for testing should be taken out of the hands of international organizations who are inherently conflicted.

  2. Why bother to test Odesnik? It's already known he dopes.

  3. Shows how woeful their testing is then if they still can't catch Odesnik.

  4. On another note.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/athletics/30384501

    A British female athlete from 2006-08. Hmm I wonder who that could be? Someone who missed several drug tests perhaps?

  5. Wish ARD would look into Tennis doping and I don't just mean Nadal but a history into doping in the sport.

  6. Little Lord 'Fauntleroy' Coe spends too much of his time bedding crumpet so not much cop at catching dopers. All mouth and no trousers - literally!

    1. Well, right now, he's trying to become head honcho of the IAAF, so in the light of the Russian scandal, he pretty much has to say that he thinks testing needs to be tougher, and less conflicted...

      That said, the sentiment is correct, and we don't hear it often enough from people with prominence in sport.

  7. Has anyone seen a Jewish man that is 6'-10' tall other than John Isner? Makes me wonder about growth hormones.
