Russian gymnast banned for doping May 7, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Sports.

Russian gymnast Anastasia Guseva will miss the Beijing Olympics after being banned until November for testing positive for a banned diuretic that can be used to mask steroids.

Guseva will miss the September 19-23 rhythmic world championships in Patras, Greece, the International Gymnastics Federation said Monday in a statement. It’s a qualifying event for next year’s Olympic Games in China.

She tested positive for the diuretic, furosemide, at the rhythmic events of the 2006 World Gymnasiade in Athens last June.

The Russian Federation of Rhythmic Gymnastics banned Guseva for one year in November 2006. “FIG has taken note of these decisions, in accordance with its own rules and in support of the fight against doping,” the sport’s world governing body said.

A doping addict? Ban her out of any Games, for the rest of her life!

No dope, no hope.

TV sports are all about steroid entertainment.

From MLB to TDF to the Olympics.

I guess you are right, but I think this is not the noble spirit of sports, or am I still living in the ancient times?

ESPN-Disney, CBS & NBC will NOT underwrite Corinthian Sports.

The networks INSIST upon doped, corked, pine tar, event fixed, prescripted WWE, theater. Ask George Mitchell, steroid auditor for MLB AND Chairman of Disney-ESPN. (a $2.6 BILLION confict-of-interest)

Clean sports do NOT exists on television. Never have.

Lance Pharmstrong and Nike say: LIVE WRONG!
