    Here is something that you don't see often (due to the quick elimination of HGH from the body). I am hoping that this means that analytical methods for detecting HGH doping are improving:

    Commonwealth Games weightlifting silver medallist Pardeep Singh of India has been provisionally suspended after testing positive for human growth hormone (HGH).

    Are they still just testing that with blood? If I recall correctly in the yearly WADA data that is published there are almost zero adverse analytical findings from blood tests. Has anyone seen a blood test taken by HUANDO at one of these big IWF meets?

    Ajan's whims.
    Who bank rolled all that?
    The Gov't?
    Some wealthy Kazakh crime family?

    Not that I am denying that it happened in anyway.

    you don't need a crime family when the gov't is already corrupt

    yah understood.

    surprised they would piss money away on something like this though.

    cost of drugs and shit is one thing,
    but the associated bribes, "fines", etc. seem more expensive ... as we are learning as now.

    sure, an entire country has a pretty big bank account in the general sense, but i could imagine if a corrupt government was going to spend some illicit funds on something .... it would be something other the WL bribes and backdoor payoffs.

    someone up top must've been a sports fan or something

    I think it's more of the fact that what sports do some of these smaller nations have a chance or athletes in?

    In the grand scheme of government budgets a few million thrown at weightlifting is pretty insignificant.

    edit: things have changed

    Kazakhtstan's president was directly supporting Ilya and the president is actually a presidictator. Authoritarian governments are willing to make an investment into sport as a political tool, weightlifting is a relatively cheap one.

    Another old Russian positive:

    IWF reports that the sample of Ms Tatiyana ALEEVA (RUS) has returned an Adverse Analytical Finding for metabolite of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (DHCMT) (S1.1.a Exogenous Anabolic Steroid).
