There was a big cooler on the bus, we had ten thermoses for each rider along with the other usual supplements, and just used them. I believe they made us slower, actually. Fanboys: What were the other “usual supplements”?

About Renée Anne

About Renée Anne | Doping in Sport - A Jamaican Insider's Perspective | Scoop.it

Welcome to the site "Doping In Sport - A Jamaican Insider's Perspective." I've been deeply involved in the fight against doping in sport for over a decade and I am curating this site with the aim of providing viewers with a steady stream of breaking news and current issues globally re doping in sport.

 

I also curate 2 companion sites: "Match Fixing & Corruption in Sport - The Spider's Web http://www.scoop.it/t/match-fixing-corruption-in-sport-the-spider-s-web. I believe that these issues => Doping in Sport + Match Fixing + Corruption are all inextricably linked just like the silken threads of the Spider's Web. No matter how faint the connections may seem they need to be explored to see where they lead us.

 

And "Human Diversity in Sport: An inalienable right for all" http://www.scoop.it/t/human-diversity-in-sport-an-inalienable-right-for-all which seeks to promote acceptance and inclusion, and identify barriers that inhibit participation by all persons in the sport of their choice, specifically issues related to sex, gender and human rights. 

 

So please join me on this journey.

Feedback is always welcomed.

this is an issue that doesn't get enough attention and is a serious issue in sports. Doping needs to be taken more seriously due to the unfair advantage it gives athletes.

In late November 2016 Hilary Evans (@OlyStatman) and I published a blog on this site about the IOC (International Olympic Committee) re-testing of the 2008-12 Olympic drug tests.

The way, then the lack of will: A story of anti-doping and those who might save it | The Science of Sport | Doping in Sport - A Jamaican Insider's Perspective | Scoop.it
The history of antidoping can be divided into two overlapping phases. There was once a huge lack of a "way" - inadequate tools to catch doping, leaving antidoping two steps behind the cheats. Advances in science have narrowed this, creating a better "way". This has exposed a bigger problem - a lack of "will". This article describes this, and offers a conceptual solution.
