    He got suspended from competition this year in the US for testing positive for a banned substance.... marijuana. Probably one of the contributing factors for him going to SM.

    You know the US is the only country that tests their athletes randomly year round? Everyone else just tells them to be clean when it matters.

    At least that is what someone who used to oly lift told me. She said one time they showed up at her door at 7am on a sunday morning with a sample cup for her to piss in. Gay.

    That and the fact that the US olympic committee is one of the biggest jokes in any sport, ever.

    Every other country looks for ways to have their athletes pass tests. The US actually tries to get athletes to fail. What a big fucking joke.

    It's one of the pioneering reasons why the US will never touch anything in Olympic Lifting again.

    Yes it is very common for US Olympic Lifters to be drug tested immediately, and randomly, right after they do anything noteworthy in a lift.

    Joke.

    that's shitty about the particulars of the U.S. Oly committee on one hand... but really the major problem here is that marijuana is considered a banned substance from the athletic community in general. Sure it's an illegal narcotic drug or whatever, but it's not really the NBA's job to tell their players to obey the law, those organizations should only be worrying about performance enhancing shit.


    Weed is obviously not a performance enhancing drug unless you are competing in a cheetos eating contest, yet prime athletes are gettnig taken off the field/court/ring/platform because of that bull shit.

    This is a whole other topic as well, but weed should not be illegal in the first place.

    A great deal of US laws are retarded. Steroids and weed being some of the top.

    plus it should be legal anyway, I wish I could smoke sometimes.


    edit: you got that right nudes.

    Better to make sure your athletes are clean than to face a huge inquiry and much anger when it's found that one of your highest profile athletes cheated majorly (Marion Jones).

    I don't really have sympathy for athletes who get done for marijuana either, they know (or should do) what is on the banned list and should stay well the fuck away from any of it. So not worth risking your whole career (basically your life, in most cases) for something so stupid.

    Stay clean for 10 years, not so fucking difficult.

    while that's true and they shouldn't risk their career... why put them in that position in the first place? that's the bigger issue. the guy fucked up, I don't think anybody is denying that.

    First, no american Olympic Lifter is making a career out of it. Not at all.

    Second, what's better.. risking someones career and having a shot at Olympic Gold, or playing it safe and NEVER having a shot at doing well at the Olympic Lifting portion of the Olympics..

    Big risk, big reward. No risk, no reward.

    Charlie Francis (Ben Johnsons coach) stated that his personal experience (and he has a lot) was that 80%+ of Olympic sprinters were using performance enhancing drugs.

    Well to me it's all about being the best without cheating. If I'm not good enough, then that's what it is. I wouldn't cheat by taking a banned performance enhancing drug.

    I'm not specifically talking about lifting here, just sport in general.
