Quote Of The Day
Robin Parisotto: “Never have I seen such an alarmingly abnormal set of blood values. So many athletes appear to have doped with impunity, and it is damning that the IAAF appears to have idly sat by and let this happen.”
Michael Ashenden: “I feel deeply sorry for the genuine athletes who were cheated out of medals because it would have been near impossible to compete against some of the blood values I evaluated. Some results were simply grotesque in their extremity. They were quite easily the worst I’ve ever seen. … athletics is in the same diabolical position today that professional cycling was in 20 years ago.”
– Two of the world’s “foremost anti-doping experts,” Michael Ashenden and Robin Parisotto, talking in the latest ARD doping documentary about a leaked IAAF database of athlete blood values. According to the report, a third of medals won at the Olympics and World Champs between 2001 and 2012 came from athletes who have recorded “suspicious” blood values.
