Multi sports thread

A thread for sports other than WTA tennis, which will hopefully put a stop to the discussions about what is and isn't appropriate for the "continual reference to Caro" thread.

I used too and still remeber being ripped to shreds by my cousin who was at the time a reigning womens doubles Jylland Champion. Like Patrik with Caro, I realised the future right there...

Lance Armstrong ends fight against doping charges

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-19364384

" The US anti-doping agency (USADA) now says it will ban Armstrong from cycling for life and strip him of his seven Tour de France titles. "

I can think of one Dane, who's very happy he's not American

Re: Multi sports thread

The entire history of road cycling has been tainted to such a degree by PED that it's impossible to take the sport seriously.

Re: Multi sports thread

Sad thing with the Lance case. He maintains his innocence but his giving up the fight suggests otherwise. Of course it's not impossible that he's giving up the fight for the reasons he's stating - that it's too much of a burden for his family - but it doesn't fit with his 'warrior' image. That, coupled with the horde of people saying he's guilty, makes it hard to believe in his innocence anymore despite all his negative tests.

It's nearly impossible that he's innocent when you think about it, unless he's truly a freak of nature. Many of his biggest rivals and contemporaries have been exposed as drug cheats. It's very unlikely that he could beat a peleton of riders who are up to their necks in PED seven times in the toughest road race of them all if he was clean himself.

I think that riders who are active in that sport really face a dilemma. Either take PED which allows you to compete in a more or less even playing field, but run the risk of getting caught and losing it all (including your dignity). Or keep a clear conscience and don't take PED in which case you're only take part to make up the numbers - if you make it to the professional ranks at all, that is.
