You really are on a McCarthy witch hunt with Coe aren't you?
The translated article from 83 is laughably poor in its accuracy.
For a start it says that UK Athletics dropped him from the Worlds. This is not true.
He pulled out of the 1500m team early in the season when the usual arguments and complaints from lesser athletes said they should go became everyday tabloid fodder. He then pulled out of the team for 800m a week before the Games on the advice of the doctors treating him at hospital. It was pretty obvious to anyone around at the time that he wasn't himself and running well below par. It didn't really come as a surprise to most in Britain when he pulled out. He wasn't dropped from the team.
The article also says he had a blood exchange which caused him to fail a drug test by his own team. Well for a start, there was no test available then that could detect blood doping, in fact I don't think there exists one today, hence the ABP. So the journalist here basically doesn't know the difference between the benefits of a blood transfusion (which they claim he had) using autologous blood and taking steroids which can be detected in a blood test.
One also has to ask that if he was taking drugs prior to Helsinki, why did they make him so piss poor in performance yet were able to be detected just that year, while in other years when he ran well, they were not detected? Was he clean in the years in which he won medals and broke records yet dirty when he was running badly and getting beat? The two things don't add up at all.
And why would being kicked off the national team for failing a drug test prevent him from any sort of running/training for the next 5 months?
It is quite pathetic the number of vultures on here who are happy to accuse Coe of drug use at this time, due to the collective responsibilities of the old IAAF coming to light, basing their claims on a foreign piece of poorly written and factually inaccurate tabloid sensationalism. If some obscure journalist on a Finnish rag was privy to such information, you can guarantee the British press would have been all over it at the time and found something concrete in the intervening 30 years to follow it up. He was a bloody Tory MP for goodness sake. Nothing dodgy from Tories escapes the UK press.
The witch hunt is getting boring and very predictable.
