Friday Humor? Russian "I Don't Do Doping" Bobsledder Fails Doping Test

We couldn't help but smile at the irony...

Following headlines that Russian curler (yes a curler) Alexander Krushelnitsky was found to have meldonium in his system (a drug designed to aid in intense high activity sports) earlier in the Games...

Russian bobsled federation president Alexander Zubkov has just announced that a second athlete, Nadezhda Sergeeva tested positive for a banned heart medication.

Sergeeva was the pilot of the bobsleigh team that finished 12th in Pyeongchang, and her positive test result was announced on Friday morning.

But what makes her case so ironic is that just days ago, she appeared in an Instagram video wearing an “I Don’t Do Doping” sweatshirt.

In the video below, posted to the social network on 15 February by filmmaker Roman Bibishev, Sergeeva features in several scenes wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with: “I don’t do doping, I am ZASPORT.”

The substance that triggered Sergeeva’s positive result at the Olympics was trimetazdine, a medication used for angina sufferers. Sergeeva has denied taking the drug, with the Russian Bobsled Federation president Alexander Zubkov stating: “She confirms she took no such medication and the team confirms she was not issued any medication.”

Who takes the sample?  Who generates the results?  Who knows they are doping?  Who doesn't know they are doping?  Who is doping whom?  In this day and age, really almost no way for any of us to know anything.  I didn't know the Olympics started until last night I saw a Youtube of the great US Women's hockey finish.

There are numerous cheaters and dirty athletes.  Fancy Bear put out lists of them before.  Apparently all one needs is the right permission slip, and they are good to go.  Lance Armstrong must have made someone really pissed off for WADA to come after him.  Have a look at all the athletes who have permission to take everything from Ritalin to Dilaudid https://fancybear.net/

I think we're leaning towards MANDATORY drug use. Wake up in the morning with a nice line of Peruvian flake, no need for coffee (or breakfast or lunch at that rate) and get into competition sailing on a nice buzz of crystal methamphetamine but for the actual performance we want everybody tripping their balls off on the finest Owsley acid. Do that for 4-6 hours and it's time for a nice relaxing joint. And maybe a handfull of Valium. Bonghits and cocktails until dinner time, maybe just a dusting of blow before a very deep nodding sleep courtesy of uncle Henry. You know, duji, smack, the shit. Straight outa Afghanistan. Kind of an international smorgasbord of drugs. Very inclusive, tres multicultural!

How do you know? Who took the sample? Was there a verifiable chain of custody?

Who did the testing? Was it an independent third party? There a many questions that remain unanswered. I can say one thing for sure, if I am ever in a situation where I am being tried by a jury trial I pray that some brainless fuck like you is not in the jury. Innocent until proven guilty. If you have not noticed, and apparently you have not. All, of the Olympic organizations bow down to a corrupt U.S.  The Olympics have become so politicized there are in fact no more games. It is now all just bullshit. Look at the ratings, anyone with an ounce of brains see what is happening and turns that shit off. I am sure that you will continue to watch.

As I already said a few days ago... Russian athletes are 100% targets for Doping -- whether real or manufactured. Their coaches and team members must hyper-control what they ingest, while abroad.

> Super Filter all water, to keep out spiked drugs in drinking water offered.

> Beware of restaurants and hotels. Spooks can easily spike the food. Ever seen Fight Club?

> Careful what you touch, while out in public. Many things can be absorbed through the skin by touch.

Only the paranoid and cautious can avoid getting Tagged with illegal substances.

To be fair it's been an interesting demonstration of zio-american pettyness, spite and the determination to ruin people's lives.

It should be a wake up call that this pharisee evil NEVER STOPS.

The running n stuff is irrelevant though, with you there, completely overshadowed by politics. It's been a lesson in politics with a tiny bit of sport squashed in there as a token.

All the teams use drugs, they have teams of doctors following them around to make sure they will test clean when they need to, a lot of them also do  blood transfusions to keep the white corpuscles up before their match.  best clean athletes money and drugs can buy

And even if we did, we also know how easy it is for some random CIA faggot to spike someones food or drink. Yes I'm more weary of CIA faggots then i am of Russian Olympians who magically test positive for single doses of drugs that require long regimented use to be effective.

I fear the American Police State more than the Russian Bobsled team.

When it comes to the illegal use of anabolic steroids, your muscle-bound, skin-headed, not-so-friendly local police officer is a prime candidate.

I seem to remember Serena Williams and that black gymnast testing positive for doping, but they were for "treating ADD" or something. SO they were OK.

Sorry Serena but you don't get that body without massive doses of HGH and Testosterone. But since she's black, doping is fine.
