  2. Olympians who died in 2018

    John Lawlor - Discus LAWLOR, Dr. John F. Passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 20 surrounded by three of his children, Maeve, Paul and Owen. Dr. Lawlor was born on March 14, 1934, in Dublin, Ireland to Edward Lawlor of New Ross, Wexford and Mary Ireland Lawlor of Enniskerry, Wicklow. He was educated by the Christian Brothers at St. Joseph's School, Marino, Dublin. Upon graduation, he joined his brothers, Eamon and Paddy, in the Dublin Garda, where his father had been a Sergeant. A gifted rugby player and hammer thrower, Dr. Lawlor attended Boston University on athletic scholarship where he was a three-time NCAA champion in the hammer throw and recipient of the E.Ray Speare award as Scholar Athlete of the Year. His older brother Paddy earned 12 caps as a rugby player for the Irish national team. While a student at Boston University, Dr. Lawlor met his future wife, Kathleen Margaret Kingston, at the Hampshire House in Boston. Kathleen, from Dorchester, MA, received math degrees from Newton College of the Sacred Heart and Boston College. Dr. Lawlor competed for Ireland in the 1960 Rome Olympics. Shortly thereafter he and Ms. Kingston married and moved to Silvermines, Ireland, where Dr. Lawlor worked as an exploration geologist. In 1964, he captained the Irish Olympic Team in Tokyo. Afterwards, four of their five children were born in Silvermines and the family moved back to Boston so that Dr. Lawlor could complete his doctorate in Geology at BU, which he received in 1970.

    One problem here. It's absolutely not true to say Australia banned him from the 1972 Olympics. He retired in 1970 after competing at the Commonwealth Games, made a comeback in late 1971 but then got a knee injury that affected his running. He only finished 3rd at the Australian Olympic trials in 1972 and the guys that beat him were not selected for Munich either. But it's fair to say Australian Athletics ignored him after he retired...

  8. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2018)

    So Kiprop says the testers texted 12 hours before they arrived and told him they were coming - Which is illegal because it gives Kiprop an advantage. And he also says he paid a small amount of money to one of the testers for some reason and still tested positive. Which either proves the testers are honest or very useless criminals

    David Howman of the International Association of Athletics Federations’ (IAAF) Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU)... outlined that ahead of the Beijing 2008 Olympics, a train containing doping samples was intercepted by Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB or ФСБ), and the samples were tipped away http://www.sportsintegrityinitiative.com/sport-resolutions-2018-regulation-integrity-issues-improving/

    Update Kiprop has published evidence that he paid one of the doping control officers 25 Euros / 30 US dollars

  12. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2018)

    https://www.iaaf.org/news/press-release/authorised-neutral-athlete-status-of-five-rac The Russian Athletics Federation has been notified that the IAAF Doping Review Board has decided to revoke the Authorised Neutral Athlete (ANA) status granted to five race walkers: Klavdiya Afanasyeva, Olga Eliseeva, Yuliya Lipanova, Sergey Sharypov and Sergey Shirobokov. The decision has been made pending further investigation into a number of serious issues arising from their participation at the training camp in Karakol in the Kyrgyz Republic last month, including the involvement in Karakol of the coach, Viktor Chegin, who has been banned from the sport for life. These five athletes are not eligible to compete at the IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships in Taicang, China this weekend (5 / 6 May). The competition organisers have been notified of this decision, so that these five athletes are removed from the start list. The Doping Review Board will review their status for future competitions in 2018, once it has received further information from RUSADA and the outcome of further investigations is known. The Doping Review Board have been assured that the two remaining ANAs entered for Taicang, Vasiliy Mizinov and Yana Smerdova, were not present at the training camp in Karakol. Consequently, these two athletes remain eligible to compete with ANA status including in Taicang.

    Except the problem with Russia is that they were accused of not trying to catch their doping athletes. And if you don't try to catch them you won't be high on that list.
