    WADA weightlifting probe uncovers "dopplegangers" providing urine samples on behalf of athletes

    Eighteen weightlifters from six countries are suspected of providing manipulated urine samples after a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) probe discovered evidence of "doppelgangers" impersonating athletes.

    WADA said it has developed a new way of detecting the banned practice following an investigation into the sport.

    This sounds like an interesting development.

    These tests can't be linked to international competitions because there's no chance for athlete substitution - so they must be linked to out-of-competition testing in a country where the testers are themselves corrupt.

    The involvement of six countries implies that the practice was widespread. Or that there's a common factor that links the countries. Could this be the smoking gun that corroborates the accusations of corruption made against HUNADO sample collectors by the ARD documentary makers?

    So now it looks like HGH testing is going to be a much more significant factor in the future.

    I'd warrant insulin and hgh are used quite a bit but we never see it due to how hard it is to detect.

    There has been some more high quality reporting on ITG today

    "Shocking" findings of WADA investigation into weightlifting to be passed on to other sports

    Transfusions, tip-offs, bribery, undetectable growth hormones - how doping corruption in weightlifting works

    The second linked article offers some fascinating insight into how the urine substitution was discovered. Statistical analysis of the testing database showed that some athletes were failing tests despite delivering clean test results shortly before the failed test - so they used this information to select athletes for further investigation, and retested stored samples from the clean test results.

    This means that the ten confirmed cases of urine substitution - and the eight "very likely" cases - are likely to be related to athletes who have already failed doping controls i.e. they are not unknown dopers.

    How do you say, "see you later" in Vietnamese? Because they are out according to the latest doping news. Will put Kim Thuan Thach out of Tokyo.

    Did anyone at London 2012 win a medal and NOT get busted in re-tests? LOL, Romania out, but Kazakhstan picks up another medal - that is hilarious.

    "Tatiana Kashirina, five times a world super-heavyweight champion, is the latest Russian lifter to be suspended because of evidence taken from the Moscow Laboratory during an investigation by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)."

    Suspended by whom? There was no IWF disclosure and she's not a minor.
