Lance Armstrong appears finally to have run out of rope. (Read 2696 times)


Fat butt on couch

    Reading the wikipedia entry, it seems possible that substance is in many otherwise legal supplements. I remember going to GNC as a college athlete and the salesperson knowing which supplements would make us fail a NCAA test. Mostly those were ones that had ephedrine. Still, those were popular for those of us transitioning from 30 mpw to 80 overnight. 

     

     

    IIRC there was a study looking at over-the-counter supplements a few years back, which found that many contained steroids and stimulants which were not reflected in the labels.  No athlete caring about their eligibility should be taking any sort of over-the-counter supplement.

    Not A Runner

       No athlete caring about their eligibility should be taking any sort of over-the-counter supplement.

       

      Which can include "male enhancement" pills, as LaShawn Merritt discovered.

        Define supplement. Does this include whey protein?

          It's really up to you whether you think of it as a food or a supplement... it's a component of milk.

            Oh, and incidentally, your supplements may contain more than you imagine that they do:

              Or they could just legalize everything...

              On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

                I misread the title and thought he was running out of dope.

                I'm on the wrong thread.

                Nevermind.

                  If I were a pro athlete, I'd be very paranoid about what I put in my mouth.  Risk disqualification and possibly my career by trying to fool the testing labs?  Nah.  'Course, I have a hard time imagining how I'd react to 6-7 figure prizes and sponsorships.

                  Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                      Which has nothing to do with runners using PEDs.

                       

                      I just wanted to share.

                        Plus there are a lot of things that normal people may take - Sudafed or eat that may be a banned substance or give a false positive.

                            And lance says, "not so fact fast monseur pussy cat"

                             

                            I did like the line from the named defendant:

                            Tygart said Monday that he was not surprised by Armstrong’s aggressive move, considering that other athletes “who attempted to have their own rules” have challenged the antidoping agency before, and failed.

                             

                            MTA fact = fast

                            Set a man afire and he'll be warm the rest of his life.

                              Well, I hope for his sake he didn't do it all for the benjamins, 'cause Patton Boggs LLP will eat up his prize money in no time.
