Has anyone else seen this?? Apparently Usain Bolt and Paula Radcliffe are both guilty of taking actovegin. I know it's not illegal by WADA's standards but Jesus Christ...

End of discussion really.
This is starting to sound like Meldonium - old news finally coming to the forefront. Whereas Meldonium has been somewhat established for anti-ischemia, there is evidence (as pointed out) that Actovegin greatly helps with something relatively similar - hypoxia as a result of circulation abnormalities. This and PRP always sounded like it went against the spirit of the sport.

Whats shocking is that WADA allows basically injections of this stuff multiple times in a 24 hour period.
