Two Jamaica athletes tested positive for Banned substances!

The situation has not changed since 2004. Its the same exact system. The question is 'Do you have faith in the current system?'


Some people just won't be happy unless Bolt or Asafa test positve. :roll:


I agree with this sentiment also nony. This was my feelings on Trackshark when almost everyone said that steve was pushed under the bus to protect asafa and I was like really??? My thing is while that whole incident was sketchy, you wanna tell me that had asafa been using he wouldnt have been caught already by the iaaf, and i don't think i'm naive to think that...as much as I endured on TS as a Jamaican, I know a lot of these TS posters have changed their tune towards especially asafa and bolt, but are secretly hoping they test postive to confirm their suspicions...I know some are just waiting like vultures for these two names to be called, and don't get me started on how they did SAF


i'll get you started....12.11 to 10.78 during the 2008 year. 11.31 in 2007 to Olympic Champ the next. That extra butter and salt does wonders for Jiffy Pop Popcorn ah???

LMAO :lol: :wink:


All of a sudden mr 9.84 man is going below 9.8


Yeah, and Mr. I can slow down, give daps to my Jamaican Long Jumper teammate, while playing dominos, afterwards, catch a game of spades, win that, then do a peppa seed dance off against Spagga Benz and still break the world record, once was a 400m runner Bolt is now talking about running 9.5. Now Mr. 10,03 one year to friggin 8.89 the next is just the product of good home training and grass tracks training right???

A few things from the article I would like cleared up, I'm sure you have probably been over this but I wasn't at Trackshark when this went down....

Mullings is trying to request a DNA sample from the original test to prove that it's not his. Mullings continues to fight that he is innocent of any wrongdoing


What happened with this?

According to published reports from the BBC, Mullings tested positive twice for testosterone.


So there was the June 24 test and then what? It says in the article his next test on August 5 was negative.

Meanwhile, Dr. Marion Bullock-Ducasse has been asked to chair an interim committee set up by the newly formed Jamaica Anti Doping Agency, until the appropriate legislation has been put in place.


So there is a Jamaica Anti Doping Agency? But the JAAA conducts the tests?

Oh snap!!! he came hard, not bad for a poor country with 2.8 million people, running on grass tracks. What a great think it would be if Bolt does go 9.5, Carl wpuld piss his panties.

Well the plot thickens as a significant number is now rumoured to have tested positive. Does seem odd that those being implicated did not gain much not even PBs as they were only alternate half pints.

http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/htm ... CHEATS.asp

Hmmmm there have always being proper testing at JAAA trials so its not a question of prudence so could this be a backlash of their Beijing success as athletes who missed out on the blings in China wanted in on the Berlin gold rush.

Also this without question clarifies the independence of the Jamaica dope testing agency.

The worst taste in my mouth is NOT about the cheats who have been found out and will be appropriately punished, but a large country whose drug taking athletes habits, especially in sprints up to 400m, brought more ignominy to and disgust with our sport than any other, except East Germany.

Yes, we are talking Olympic Champions and World Champions and an endless list of 400m sprinters huzzahed by those fans shouting ''we are the best''. These athletes in that country were able to play the lawyer game for too long with a mealy- mouthed National track and field authority who spouted weak kneed rubbish on several famous occasions ( a fellow called Reynolds springs to mind)
Many posters on this Forum were not, I suspect, as ruthlessly tough on their athletes cheating, which we lesser mortals knew had been going on throughout the track and field scene throughout the Eighties and Nineties.

Nothing so nasty and hypocritical as the almost joyful ,speculative and largely hysterical outbursts against 5 Jamaican cheats . What a good idea if the posters of that country were to leave it to Jamaicans to express sadness and disappoinment at what is about to unfold.

One thing that independent track fans know is that a lot of that particular country's fans can never forgive, deep in the hearts, the fact that Bolt , Asafa and the Jamaican women sprinters are currently, but not forever, possibly better at the very apex than this country's sprinters. Just look athe obsession with the hundreds and hundreds of posts about Gay, Bolt etc.

Yes, posters, its the United States of America.

Track and field is still continuing despite Jones, Gatlin and others who never were officially caught out..!!!

According to our sources, none of the country's premier sprinters are among the five. However, three of the athletes - two male and the female - are members of Jamaica's sprint (4x100m) relay pools, having finished in the top six of the 100 metres.


The other two male athletes were selected to Jamaica's team, having finished in the top six of the 400m metres and are members of the 4x400m relay pool.

laux :lol: :lol:

200 and 400 as i said.

boy it look obvious is who now lol.

5 athletes come on man, these guys must have really thought they could draw in medals.
But it greatly puts Jamaica at a disadvantage in Berlin, in the respective events.

We have to give credit where credit is due still! JAAA is doing a pretty good job. Better to catch some than believe there are none.

Do you have any idea how stupid you sound?

No one except the most foolish fans are interested in comparing positive tests as a means of smearing fans of the other nation. All we have are facts. You are so paranoid about the competition between us that you will fight at the drop of a hat.

since they say its not one of jamaica's premier sprinters, so it is NOT bolt or powell, the bad thing for those 2 is even though they may be 100% innocent, that there teammates got caught, lots of people are going to say those 2 are not clean they just did not get caught. absolutely unfair to then, but it's a reality.

5 is a piss pot load.
Its good that we are cleaning house though, its embarrassing but its the right thing.
Other countries need to follow this example; there are a whole lot a athletes around the world doing this. This incident only shows how intertwined doping is in T&F, especially when it comes to desperation for success.

Ah fuck...

Now it's saying that 3 of the 5 that failed the drug test were Jamaican 4x100 team members (2 mens 4x100 team members and 1 womens 4x100 team member).

So now unless it's just Frater and Carter, we are looking at one of the big boys going down I guess.

Whoever it turns out to be, the guilt-by-association is going to have a big effect on the leading sprinters. If it's Blake and/or Anderson, they train with Bolt. If it's Carter and/or Carter, they train with Powell. And if it's Mullings, he trains with Gay (I think... or at least that's what a TV commentator said recently).

I still think the guilt by association thing is overplayed since balco. If one guy from a training group tests positive, there is no real reason to suggest the entire squad is juiced up. Two or more, however...

They almost certainly mean Berlin relay pool rather than last year's OG team. This will be clear if you can find the few posts above that don't involve US and non-US posters fighting each other...

I agree. I don't think that's a bad thing though as it often turns out to be correct!
Half this board will be banned for posting speculative posts. Totally agree though. I think it would be worse if it was MVP as they seem to live in each others pockets.

Having said that, Gatlin was banned and Shawn Crawford maintained a glossy image. Indeed, he's the perfect fair sport by all reports lately.

If so, he's banned for life. We'll know tomorrow as he's due to start in Madrid.

Well, according to the Jamaica Observa, 2 men who finished in the top 6 at the trials in the 100m are among the ones who tested positive. So, here are the candidates:

Top 6 men 100m

Bolt
Powell
Frater
Anderson
Mullings
Blake

The article, which appears on the news section of T&FN front page, says that it is not a top tier runner. But what do they mean top tier? Two of these 6 have tested positive for something. Oh boy, this is going to get dicey.

Would they pull these athletes from upcoming meets based on these positive results or do they have to wait for sample B to be tested? Can these athletes appeal and continue to participate while the appeals are being heard?

What I'm getting at is could we see Jamaican athletes, who were supposed participate today, be pulled from their scheduled races? If yes, then we will know today which athletes are safe..........

Top tier is clearly top 3! All former global medallists.

Maybe it is a coincidence, but I don't see Marvin Anderson listed as a participant in the 200m today. He was on the original list and he has been replaced by Jamaican Nickel Ashmeade. Here is the start list:

1 Kim COLLINS SKN 20.20 20.55

2 Jaysuma SAIDY NDURE NOR 19.89 20.67

3 Nickel ASHMEADE JAM

4 Mark JELKS USA 20.28 20.28

5 Marlon DEVONISH GBR 20.19 20.55

6 Tyson GAY USA 19.58 19.58

7 Wallace SPEARMON USA 19.65 19.98

8 Paul HESSION IRL 20.30 20.50

Anderson is hurt, and there is a lot more to this issue than meets the eye. Meeting being convened at the Prime Minister's office to try to make sense of what is happening.

Suspect that what will happen is that quickly establish that it's not Usain Bolt the government will twist enough arms that the rights of the accused to have confidentiality until the B-stage is done will magically disappear.

For the good of the sport, I guess it has to be done, but a pox on whomever prematurely leaked the story in the first place.
