    Powerlifting is fun to do but stupidly boring to watch, especially with monos and all the rest. Weightlifting is interesting but they don't show it. Likewise discus, etc. Mostly it's just stuff they expect Aussies to medal in, like swimming.

    It's not a rippetoe quote, Bazza, sorry to disappoint. And do you think my comment was directed against drug cheats, or against the delayed testing procedure? What next, exhume the bodies of the guys in the 1924 Tour De France and test them for cocaine and strychnine?

    Does it take that long??? Remember Ben Johnson was caught days after the 100M Final. USADA books UFC fighters 3 weeks after the test.

    I think they keep the samples from Olympics etc for years to come just to test them again under newer technology.

    Mostly, no. But the few times where it's years later will of course be the ones who got gold - nobody's retesting the guy who came 12th.

    They're still testing samples from 2008. It's stupid. Tech will always improve. Should we be testing 2008 samples in 2036? Once the games are over, that should be it. "But they got away with it!" Yes, so did the Soviets in 1956 when they didn't even have tests for anything. So what, move on.

    Focus on the current athletes. And for fuck's sakes develop a proper test for HGH so we can finally bin some of Australia's swimmers.

    My mistake. Marcos.


    But I agree. Once it's over it should be over.

    Yeah I agree wholeheartedly. We should also apply that principle to Criminal Law as well. If I can Murder someone and today's investigation methods aren't good enough to catch me today, it should be over

    If you use performance-enhancing drugs to kill someone, sure. But if it's just to enhance performance... for fuck's sake, it's just sport. It's not worth chasing people down for years or decades later.

    i don't understand, why not use technology at a later date. quite simple, think twice about cheating.

    The concept that someone should not be punished for taking banned drugs, just because they passed a test at the olympics, is a bit silly if it is later found out they were cheating.

    In my case I lost a fair Work commission case based on lies when the employer said I was not an employee, but the use of FOI gave me this which indicates fraud.

    "Chris has an active sessional record but his last pay against this record was 19/12. I can terminate this record so it is
    inactive".


    Why should anyone walk away from abuse of the rules.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.

    What about when rules have changed, should those who won prior to the changed rules be stripped of their winning?
    But We're talking just sport here spart, not murder

    what about theft, robbery and fraud. There is a lot of money at stake from winning a Gold medal. If a robber, thief or fraudster can get away with it today, they should be allowed to get away with it permanently you reckon.

    Bad post Kyle. :P
