Serves 'em right, cheating bleeders. Wonder how long it's been going on? Remember years ago the size of those Russian Women weightlifters and Hammer throwers?

I do, and it was definitely cheating. In fact, heavy musculature is not possible without testosterone. So it was a little more than doping there...it was a heavy dose of gender-blender.

pirat

The East Germans were caught out in the 1970s and 1980s;  (there were a couple of female swimmers and athletes had their names stripped from the record books..).

And they probably imported, and traded, their technology and drugs from Russia back then..

And they weren't alone --  China had a team of suspect female swimmers at a couple of the Olympics during the '90s.   And Ben Johnson and Flo Jo' also lost their records; and then there was a team of Bulgarian weight lifters; and Lance Armstrong..
