Polscy lekkoatleci w prywatnych rozmowach przyznają, że Międzynarodowa Federacja Lekkiej Atletyki toleruje stosowanie dopingu przez największe gwiazdy. Są one objęte nieoficjalną ochroną przed kontrolami - ale tylko przez osiem lat.
Przykładem na tego typu działania może być ukaranie dyskwalifikacją i odebraniem medalu Bena Johnsona podczas olimpiady w Seulu. Jednocześnie umiejętnie zatuszowano to, że wyniki kontroli antydopingowej Carla Lewisa także wykazały niewłaściwe wyniki.

Kilka lat później, gdy amerykański sprinter zakończył karierę, wyszło na jaw, że także on stosował doping przed koreańską olimpiadą. Skutecznie tuszowali to Amerykanie, którzy mieli w IAAF znacznie większe wpływy niż Kanadyjczycy.


Aha, I see, good points. But I would also like to add that:

Well, I can't provide the translation or it will be pulled by the mods as a copyright violation. And if I gave a synopsis of the article, it would probably be pulled as making baseless accusations... :evil:

Nothing new under the sun. The article states that while Ben Johnson took it on the chin, the Americans, namely Carl Lewis got off. This we have heard umpteen times.

In essence, it says that the major-major stars are enjoying special protection by the IAAF and will not be allowed to test positive. This protection, though, is of limited duration (the article suggests 8 years) and if these athletes hang around too long, the IAAF will eventually let them go - hence the positive tests by Merlene Ottey, Javier Sotomayor and Linford Christie coming late in their careers. Marion Jones' recent positive is also an example of that - according to the author she must have been framed, since it makes no sense for a sprinter to use EPO.
Disclaimer: I'm not suggesting any of this makes sense, merely presenting one point of view I came across. If you disagree, don't debate with me.
