Greek weightlifters test positive



Eleven out of 14 members of Greece's national weightlifting team have tested positive for banned substances.

The Greek Weightlifting Federation said it would test the B samples before setting up a special investigation.

It also said national coach Christos Iacovou had handed in his resignation and been suspended.

If the B samples also test positive, Greece could find itself without a weighlifting team at the Olympic Games in Beijing in August.

Since the 1992 Barcelona Games, Greece has won 12 Olympic weightlifting medals, including five golds. Before Barcelona the country had not won a weightlifting medal since the 1904 Games.

Iacovou, a former weightlifter himself, has been in charge of the national team since Barcelona.

The Greek federation said the out-of-competition drugs tests were conducted by the World Anti-Doping Agency on the orders of the International Weightlifting Federation.



They could join Castleford Tigers ?

Hang on. How the f**k can you ban the Greeks from the Olympics?

As Greece is the birthplace of democracy it seems very undemocratic to me. If most of them are on something I'd ban the clean lifters personally for letting the side down.

Ah well. Sport is a better place today for sure.

I like it, none of this one lifter here or there, but if you go out, go with style together with the whole crew!

Finnish long distance skiiers did the same, every f**ker got caught due to a snitch inside or something like that.

What kind of f**king stupid sport is long distance skiing? How can you do that unless you have a long distance hill.

No wonder the Dutch smoke weed en masse.

cross country skiing - got my internal translator mixed up, since cross country skiing is just "hiihto" in finnish, stupid name for it anyway, how the f**k are you going to ski long distance if not cross the country???

I think round the country would take a lot longer, actually.
