It said 10 medallists in track and field at the last Olympics had suspicious blood values and didn't test positive. If only 10 medallists are doping I think we are way ahead of other sports.
But remember 1 suspicious value does not mean you are doping. I'd like to talk to experts and say if they think more athletes are doping than the # of suspicious values or less.
It said 80% of Russian medals were won by suspicious athletes. I'd have assumed it was 100%.
Kenya gets singled out, saying it had 18 suspcious values. What the report does not say is there were 104 Kenyan (correct me if I counted wrong) medals from this time period. So 17% of Kenyan medals are suspicious. Less than 1/5 and the early part of this time period you couldn't get sanctioned for a biological passport positive.
Now I wonder why it left out sprinters. Is it easier to microdose with testosterone and not have a suspicious value?
Am I crazy to think this is something. to be positive about.
Also someone should do the math and see once you remove the Russian positive what % of everyone else was positive. It might be really low especially once you remove the Kenyan positives.
BBC Summary here:
It goes to say, "British athletes - including Olympic champion heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill - have lost out in major events to competitors who were under suspicion."
It doesn't say that major British athlete(s) are also on this list. The British journalist who told me that also said that one suspicious value means nothing, so they want to play it up when one of their athletes gets beat but play it down when one athlete of theirs is on the list.
I've gone back and forth on this, but I don't think one suspicious value means anything so I'd like to see the list released. I think all athletes blood values should be public anyway so actually what is there to debate. Release the list. I'm surprised an American journalist hasn't released it.
