    Donald Trump suggested without evidence Saturday that Democrat Hillary Clinton might have been on drugs at their most recent debate and that the election is “rigged” against him, adding a new round of unsubstantiated assertions to an increasingly scathing campaign.

    Donald Trump on Saturday repeated his argument that the election is rigged against him and returned to his suggestion that Democratic rival Hillary Clinton appears physically unfit to be president -- so both of them should take a drug test. “Looks to me like a rigged election,” Trump said at a rally in New Hampshire. “The election is being rigged by the liberal media to push outright lies to rig the election." Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has since this summer hinted at the possibility of voter fraud in big, Democrat-run cities like Philadelphia swinging the election for Clinton and...

    Donald Trump suggested Saturday that his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, has been "getting pumped up" with performance-enhancing drugs and challenged Clinton to take a drug test before the final debate next week. Trump argued that Clinton was more energetic during the beginning of their debate last Sunday, but lost her steam by the end of the debate. ... "I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate," Trump said during a rally here [NH].

  • In vilifying Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova, Americans are splashing murky waters

    RIO DE JANEIRO — Feels good, doesn’t it, to slap water in the face of the rest of the world and go all jingoist? Lilly King kept America strong and pure when she sent a blast of chlorine into the eyes of that Russian criminal mastermind Yulia Efimova and prevented her from melting the earth’s core. Or something like that, right? But there is a disquieting aspect to the narrative going here at the Olympics. It’s not a moment of perfect American moral clarity. King, 19, is a swaggeringly great swimmer, but the rivalry between her and 24-year-old Efimova in...

    Lilly King put her money where her mouth is on Monday night, romping to victory in the 100m breaststroke final after she called her closest Russian rival a drugs cheat - and took another shot at her minutes after securing gold. Yulia Efimova, who was caught in a doping scandal, was booed when her name was announced in the women's 100m breaststroke final. King started strongly and maintained the lead — with Efimova trailing right behind her. 'We can still compete clean and do well in the Olympic games — and that's how it should be,' said King after finishing...

    American swimmer Lilly King had some choice words, as well as a finger wag, Sunday night for Russian counterpart Yulia Efimova, who was twice banned for doping but was surprisingly reinstated for the Rio Olympics Saturday. Efimova, the reigning world champion in the 100 meter breaststroke, has a long history with using substances to get a leg-up on her competition. She was suspended for 16 months in 2013 when anabolic substances were found in her system, and received a provisional ban (which was later lifted) earlier this year for using meldonium. in their rulings on Russia's state-sponsored doping scandal, The...

    Officials are considering banning the Russian national team from this summer’s Paralympics after the World Anti-Doping Agency has exposed evidence of a state-run doping scheme that has also put the country's status for the Olympics in jeopardy, according to the New York Times. At least 35 positive doping tests by Russian Paralympians had been covered up by the Russian sports ministry since 2011, according to the Times. An additional 19 doping samples from the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi were tampered with, much like the samples of other Russian athletes at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

The IAAF Council met in Vienna to vote on the association’s November ruling that suspended all Russian track and field athletes indefinitely. A news conference is expected to be held later on Friday.

    Cycling officials on Saturday detained a bicycle ridden during the cyclocross world championships in Zolder, Belgium, to investigate "technological fraud," and on Sunday they confirmed the bike had a concealed motor in the frame. The International Cycling Union said the bike belonged to 19-year-old Belgian Femke Van den Driessche. It is the first official case of "mechanical doping" or "bike doping" at cycling's highest level. If used at the right time during a race even a small motor can provide a critical burst of power and speed.

    In an effort to build an audience - and credibility - Al Jazeera America has staked its reputation on deep dive investigations and topics that mainstream TV news divisions have largely abandoned amid shrinking news budgets. And The Dark Side fit squarely in that wheelhouse. It was an undercover probe about doping in sports that fingered several high-profile current athletes including the Denver Bronco's superstar quarterback Peyton Manning. But now AJAM finds itself on the hot seat as the sources of some of the allegations have begun to recant amid furious denials from the athletes. "The allegation that I would...

    The day before Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s highly anticipated bout against Manny Pacquiao, agents for the United States Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) conducted a surprise drug test on Mayweather and found evidence of an illegal IV being used on the boxer, according to Thomas Hauser of SBNation. The fluids that Mayweather's camp says were administered to the fighter — saline and vitamins to combat dehydration — are not banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which sets the standards used by Usada. The use of the IV, however, as well as the decisions by Usada to not notify the Nevada Athletic Commission...

    t was the story he had denied. The story Emma O'Reilly went some way to telling when she exposed Lance Armstrong as a drug cheat. But when the conversation moved to the subject of that positive test in 1999, he not only agreed with her that she had been right but went a stage further. O'Reilly always believed there was a bigger conspiracy and with her sitting before him he finally revealed the full scale of the cover-up, naming Hein Verbruggen as a central figure in his escape from punishment. Certainly, Armstrong used this opportunity to his full advantage. He...

    Armstrong was open about his doping with Crow, never suspecting that she would tell anybody about it. "Rather than try to hide the transfusion from her, Armstrong was completely open about it," the authors write, according to the Daily News. "He trusted that Crow would have no desire to tell the press or anyone else about the team's doping program. He explained that it was simply part of the sport - that all cyclists were doing the same thing."

    Major League Baseball will seek to suspend about 20 players connected to the Miami-area clinic at the heart of an ongoing performance-enhancing drug scandal, including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, possibly within the next few weeks, "Outside the Lines" has learned. If the suspensions are upheld, the performance-enhancing drug scandal would be the largest in American sports history. Tony Bosch, founder of the now-shuttered Biogenesis of America, reached an agreement this week to cooperate with MLB's investigation, two sources told "Outside the Lines," giving MLB the ammunition officials believe they need to suspend the players. One source familiar with the...

    Lance Armstrong, who this fall was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for doping and barred for life from competing in all Olympic sports, has told associates and antidoping officials that he is considering publicly admitting that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career, according to several people with direct knowledge of the situation. He would do this, the people said, because he wants to persuade antidoping officials to restore his eligibility so he can resume his athletic career.

    GENEVA, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life on Monday after the International Cycling Union (UCI) ratified the United States Anti-Doping Agency's (USADA) sanctions against the American. The long-awaited decision has left cycling facing its "greatest crisis" according to UCI president Pat McQuaid and has destroyed Armstrong's last hope of clearing his name. "Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling. Lance Armstrong deserves to be forgotten in cycling," McQuaid told a news conference as he outlined how cycling, long battered by doping problems for decades, would have to...
