Previous reports had identified only...

    Irina Starykh, the reigning European champion selected for the Russian Olympic team, is reportedly among three biathletes who have failed drugs tests. In what is a bitter drugs-related blow for the host nation with the Opening Ceremony of the Games just nine days away the suspension of three unnamed athletes - from Russia and Lithuania - was announced in a statement by the International Biathlon Federation (IBU). The statement revealed "four adverse analytical findings were obtained in samples of three IBU athletes from Russia and Lithuania," and "the outcome of the test showed the presence of a non-specific substance."

    BANNED steroid drugs were found in Oscar Pistorius’s house after he shot dead lover Reeva Steenkamp. Police also discovered a blood-stained cricket bat in the Blade Runner’s mansion in Pretoria, South Africa — and evidence of heavy drinking before the 3am shooting. Cops are now probing a theory that Pistorius may have blasted Reeva in an explosion of fury caused by the performance-boosting steroids. They are investigating whether murder suspect Pistorius was in the grip of “roid rage” — a side-effect of high doses of the outlawed drugs. Officers who searched the 26-year-old’s home after lover Reeva was killed in...

    In a ruling with broad implications for computer privacy, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that federal investigators went too far when they seized the digital records of a drug testing company and kept the results of confidential drug tests performed on all Major League baseball players during the 2002 season. According to published reports, 104 players tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. The names of four of them — Alex Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, and (now retired) Sammy Sosa — were leaked to the press by an anonymous source or sources. The court...

    Two more people linked to a nationwide investigation into the illegal sale of steroids were arraigned Tuesday on drug-related charges as published reports implicated more athletes, including the winner of the Ohio bodybuilding competition named for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Steven and Karen Lampert of Anti-Aging Centers in Nanuet pleaded not guilty in an Albany County, N.Y., courtroom and were released without bail. They are charged with submitting prescriptions to a Florida pharmacy - some "obviously forged" according to the district attorney - for drugs totaling more than $50,000 for people without a medical need. Steven Lampert is charged with 20...

    WASHINGTON (March 31) - The same Congressional committee that conducted hearings into steroids in baseball has asked NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue for information about how football regulates the performance-enhancing substances. The Government Reform Committee also said Thursday it will ask for similar data from the NBA, NHL, NCAA, U.S. Track and Field and Major League Soccer. "As the committee has stated publicly numerous times, its focus on the performance-enhancing drug use in sports is not limited to professional baseball," the committee said in a letter signed by committee chairman Rep. Tom Davis and ranking Democrat Rep. Henry Waxman. "As part...

    In the midst of a Sports Illustrated/CNN Sports blog entry about the NCAA men's basketball tournament, Boston Globe Magazine writer Charles Pierce, who in a 2003 article touted how if Mary Jo Kopechne had lived, "Edward Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age," denounced columnist and CNN commentator Robert Novak. Pierce castigated Novak as "a mendacious lycanthrope" and warned CBS, which is carrying the tournament: "If you use him as a talking-head anywhere on your network, you've sacrificed credibility for celebrity in a big way." Novak is a big college basketball fan. Mendacious means untruthful and...

    Despite pressure from a Congressional committee, Major League Baseball is intent on allowing its newly re-written drug policy to work before seeking any more changes from the players association, Commissioner Bud Selig said at a press gathering at HoHoKam Park on Saturday. A year after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and his Senate Commerce Committee told Selig and union chief executives Don Fehr to toughen baseball's steroid-testing program, the top ranking members of the House Government Reform Committee told them to do it again at the end of an 11-hour hearing on Thursday in Washington, D.C. MLB responded to Congress by...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger acknowledged using steroids during his years as a champion body builder and said he would still have used them even knowing what he knows now about the adverse effects of the performance-enhancing drugs. In an interview to be broadcast Sunday, Schwarzenegger told ABC's George Stephanopoulos, "I have no regrets about it, because at that time, it was something new that came on the market, and we went to the doctor and did it under doctors' supervision. We were experimenting with it. It was a new thing. So you can't roll the clock back and...

    We keep hearing about "zero tolerance" from government officials and in government schools. Well, perhaps it is time We the People ought to demand a little zero tolerance from them. For instance, they jailed Martha Stewart for lying to an investigator. What about Bill Clinton? There are still a few matters that have not been resolved with the Clinton fiasco yet. Why isn't out and out perjury treated more seriously than lying so some stuffy investigator? We should have zero tolerance for all political lying -- for all public officials, which are public servants, actually. Turn the law around and...

    By now, most of you know that I'm not that much of a sports fan. I watch maybe one football game a year. Not a whole one, mind you, just a minute here, 30 seconds there, as I'm flipping channels between Food Network, Animal Planet, Adult Swim and Fox News. I'm not all that fussed about basketball, except when a fight breaks out of course, and I can't be bothered too much with hockey except when a fight doesn't break out. Being an American citizen and a male of the species, however, it is expected that I give a rat's...
