Doping probe rocks Australian sport

Updated February 07, 2013 20:49:50

An ACC (Australian Crime Commission) investigation ("Organised crime and drugs in sport") has found widespread drug use in Australian professional sport, with some athletes being given substances not yet approved for human use.

The year-long investigation says organised criminal networks have been involved in distributing the drugs to athletes and support staff, including doctors and coaches.

In at least one case an entire team is believed to have been doped.

A former head of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority says today is the "blackest day in Australian sport" while Justice Minister Jason Clare says "the findings are shocking and they'll disgust Australian sports fans".

The report's key points:

* The use of prohibited substances, including peptides, hormones, and illicit drugs, is widespread amongst professional athletes.
* The Australian Crime Commission says no code is immune from the scandal.
* Players are being administered with drugs not yet approved for human use.
* The doping is being run by sports scientists, coaches, support staff, doctors and pharmacists.
* Organised crime is involved in distributing the drugs and, in one possible case, match-fixing.
* The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) will get new powers to conduct a "full and unhindered investigation".
* Authorities are refusing to name the athletes and teams involved But Victoria Police say a confidential version of the report contains names.
* The NRL is investigating Manly and Penrith's records; the AFL announces changes to its integrity program.
* Find out more: GHRP, pig brain extract, and other weapons in the dopers' chemical arsenal.

...


11:33am: Here are some more key findings contained in the ACC's report:

* Some sports scientists and doctors are experimenting on professional athletes in an effort to determine if particular substances can improve performance without being detected.
* An instance of team-based doping, orchestrated by some club officials and coaching staff, has been identified.
* Officials from one club have been identified as administering, via injections and intravenous drips, a variety of substances, possibly including peptides
* The ACC has identified links between professional athletes and organised criminal identities in Australia.
* Illicit drug use by athletes leaves them particularly vulnerable to exploitation for other criminal purposes, including match fixing and fraud arising out of the provision of "inside information".
* There are clear parallels between what has been discovered in Australia and the USADA investigation into Lance Armstrong, underlining the transnational threat posed by doping to professional sport, both from a ‘fair play’ perspective and as a broader integrity issue.

So, what else is new?

Reporting on sports corruption is just like reporting that the sun came up this morning!

Same old story over and over again!

Only the names of people and places change from one NEWS report to another.

It's never going to change, unless sports are all eradicated!

"Corruption? In my sports?"

It's more likely than you think.

The tragic result of the abuse of one of those drugs . . .
