Usain Bolt Clean
Usain Bolt continues to shine as the beacon of cleanliness in a sport that is always under suspicion for cheating. track & field athlethics struggles with the reputation of being a ‘cheater’s haven,’ and the latest findings seem to confirm that.
Endurance Medals Suspicious
A third of the medals won in endurance Olympic events are allegedly tainted. This from the findings that Kenya alone had 18 medals won by suspicious athletes. Russia is much worse. More than 80% of its medals were won by suspicious athletes.
As ways are found to combat drug use, ingenious new drugs and methods of deception are found. The latest trend is the use of blood transfusions and EPO micro-doses to boost the red cell count.
Usain Bolt has recently changed his junk food diet to a healthier, more natural one. Let’s hope that he continues to be vigilant and ends his career without being tainted. We know he will not be lured into that direction, but “there’s many a slip between the cup and the lip.”

Jamaica’s Usain Bolt was among the big name athletes recording no abnormal results after fresh allegations of suspected doping emerged following a leak of test data.
Britain’s Mo Farah whose coach has been recently embroiled in doping allegations was also said to be clean.
According to the BBC, the Sunday Times and German broadcaster ARD/WRD have obtained access to the results of 12,000 blood tests from 5,000 athletes. Among the leaked data, Russia emerged as “the blood testing epicentre of the world” with more than 80% of the country’s medals won by suspicious athletes, while Kenya had 18 medals won by suspicious athletes.
Additionally, athletes are increasingly using blood transfusions and EPO micro-doses to boost the red cell count.
The investigation used two of the world’s “foremost anti-doping experts” to review the data.
