The Australians Have the Scoop?

Postby Donley » Wed Nov 19, 2003 7:48 pm

http://foxsports.news.com.au/story/0,86 ... 18,00.html. Includes speculation that the 4th US positive for THG is a male hammer thrower. If that is the case only one person is possible, if what the USATF folks also said is true. Anyway I will let someone else point out the only possible person this could be if this report is true.

Um.....maybe i'm wrong here but didn't they already out McEwan? He was the "hammer thrower" wasn't he?

Straight from the article.

Five track and field athletes have so far tested positive to THG. They include Europe's top sprinter Dwain Chambers of England and Americans Regina Jacobs (1500m, 5000m), Kevin Toth (shot put) and John McEwen (hammer throw).

The identity of a fifth athlete who competed at the recent world championships in Paris has not been made public.

The fifth athlete is understood to be a low-profile thrower, possibly an American male hammer thrower.


Hopefully this will not go past the "cut and paste" limit.

there currently are no high-profile hammer throwers in the US

speculation probably exists because Toth, McEwen, along with a few top hammer throwers all have the same coach

What makes you think the test was done in Paris?

Mike Hurst, who wrote the article in The Australian, is a friend, but don't trust his sources on this one. He wrote that THG positive No. 5 was an athlete who competed in Paris AND that the athlete might be a U.S. male hammer thrower. Both can't be the case.
